TAYLOR MAC: MUSIC OF THE 1810's & 1830's
December 17 at 7:00 PM
$20
Over the next two years a bedazzled creature builds a community by singing 24 concerts of the last 24 decades of popular music. Ultimately all 24 decades will be stitched together culminating in a 24-hour long extravaganza. Before then, join Taylor Mac and band as they use the popular songs from the 1810's and 1830's, the decades when American Christmas music started to become popular. Alongside the songs and tomfoolery expect Charles Dickens, opium and a new Texas Revolution.

A NIGHT WITH PIGPEN THEATRE CO
December 17 at 9:30 PM
SOLD OUT
The final night of the explosively inventive PigPen Theatre Co.'s 2012 residency at Joe's Pub. The company's work features folk storytelling, puppetry, clever staging, live music, and has captured the imagination of critics and audiences alike since they were introduced to the New York stage in 2010 at FringeNYC with "The Nightmare Story". Since then, the group has gone on to become the first company in history to win FringeNYC's highest honor for a play two years running (2010 and 2011 with "The Mountain Song"), produced their work off-Broadway, ranked as the Huffington Post's #5 theatrical event of 2011, and of course, finished their undergraduate conservatory training at Pittsburgh's historic Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. Lush harmonies, banjos, accordions, guitars, drums, pianos and more will bring to life their favorite songs from the debut album, "Bremen."

ERIC HUTCHINSON ALMOST SOLO TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUEST JESSIE PAYO
December 18 at 6:30 & 9:30 PM
SOLD OUT
As Eric Hutchinson journeyed toward the making of Moving Up Living Down, the delightfully witty and supremely wise follow-up to his hit debut Sounds Like This, he developed a very simple rule regarding new songs. "I traveled so long and got to see so many people and places," he says. "And sharing music with the fans every night got me thinking: The best concerts are when people sing along with me. So for the next one, what kind of songs do I want people singing with me? What kind of songs do I want people dancing to?" Get ready to sing and dance. Special guest of the evening is Jessie Payo. This show will be available to stream from home via Livestream.
