Music Around Town

PigPen Theatre Co.

When: Mon., Oct. 12, 7 p.m. 2015

Part folk band, part theater troupe, Pigpen Theatre Co. writes narrative-driven songs and stories about crows, graveyards and the moon. They play whimsical Americana tunes rife with banjo, fiddle, accordion and all the usual old-timey goodness that comes with it. The titular track on the band’s first studio release, Bremen, tells the story of a dog and hen trying to convince people that they are kind. “The Dress Song” is just that, a song about a dress sung to a jaunty waltz with vocals that are dusty and velvety. Pigpen’s songs are like little American fables in that they combine dialogue and visuals to create an encapsulated folksy experience. (Eric Gonzalez)
