Event details

Pert Near Sandstone is a hard-driving string band from the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Gathered round an old-timey microphone, the boys play well-crafted originals and public-domain numbers from the the old-time songbook. "This ain't no shirt and tie bluegrass music" the band boasts -- but it ain't exactly punk rock neither. The group's new long-player "Up and Down the River" is a doozie of a dancefest with bacchanalian numbers like "Drunken Hiccups" and "The Story of You, Me & Your Mama."
