The Infamous Stringdusters with Pert Near Sandstone
The Aggie Theatre

“The Infamous Stringdusters are at the forefront of a new movement in bluegrass music,” according to the band’s website. “Their unmatched virtuosity has enabled them to take acoustic music to a completely new level. They wield an expansive repertoire touching on masters from Jimmy Martin to John Hartford, but their strength lies in their original compositions.”

Ian McFeron
Avogadro’s Number
7 p.m.
“A prolific songwriter whose lyrical prose and fervent work ethic has drawn comparison to Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams, Ian McFeron has released a steady stream of albums” since 2003, according to his website. “From the beginning, McFeron dedicated himself to building audiences the old fashioned way: on the road. Traveling from city to city, state to state, nation to nation, McFeron performs an average of 200 shows a year spread throughout the United States and Europe, inspiring listeners with his beautifully crafted songs and honest narratives.”

Friday and Saturday
8 p.m. both nights, 2 p.m. matinee Saturday
$22 to $27 adults; $16 to $20 seniors, students and groups of 10 or more; $16 to $20 matinees
“To fully enjoy ‘The Ladies Man,’ you must suspend belief and remove your hat of plausibility for a zany ride,” according to a press release from OpenStage Theatre. “Charles Morey’s free-handed adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s fast-paced and frothy French farce is set in turn-of-the-century Paris. The shaggy-poodle story tells of a physician wrongly suspected of infidelity by his youthful wife. As a result, comedic confusion lurks behind every door and mistaken-identity cases multiply like mayflies.”
