Pert Near Sandstone & Armchair Boogie @ Alluvial

Two of the Midwest’s finest bluegrass groups at this barn-burner of a show!

Pert Near Sandstone first gathered around a microphone in a Minneapolis basement to record their debut album more than a decade ago, and since that time they have cemented their status as linchpins of the Midwestern acoustic scene with energized interpretations of the traditional old-time sound. As co-founders and hosts of the Blue Ox Music Festival, Pert Near Sandstone has helped grow the 3-day event into an annual pilgrimage for roots music fans across the country and has featured some of the scene’s most cherished artists like Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Del McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Peter Rowan, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Tyler Childers, Margo Price, Trampled by Turtles, Greensky Bluegrass, and many more.

Based out of Madison, Wis., Armchair Boogie is a powerhouse bluegrass band not afraid to explore the realms of rock, funk, and folk. With drums and electric bass backing acoustic guitar and banjo, the boogie boys have high-energy shows featuring fast-pickin’ and improvised jams. Catch them touring nationally and climbing festival lineups.

Tickets are $15 in advance / $20 at the door
