Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

PigPen Theatre Co./The Spring Standards/Lowly the Tree Ghost

When: Sun., March 30, 8:30 p.m. 2014

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. 8:30 p.m., $10. Grog Shop. (Gonzalez)

Price: $10
