Freakwater is an old-time country act with punk-rock roots guided by singers Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin. The group’s occasional albums, released (improbably) on Thrill Jockey, contain the kind of literate, true-to-life songs that make critics and hipsters swoon. Jaye Jayle & Drunken Prayer open the 7:30 p.m. show at 3S Artspace (319 Vaughn St., Portsmouth). Tix: $16 (all ages). 603-766-3330. 3sarts.org.
