Although talented musicians are capable of enthralling jams, only the best can do it while the drummer is pickled. Savor the sweet brine of instrumental dexterity with today's GrouponLive deal to see Rusted Root at The Cubby Bear. For $10, you get one general-admission presale ticket for Tuesday, March 27, at 9 p.m. (up to an $18.63 value, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 8 p.m.
The infectious polyphonic joy of Pittsburgh's Rusted Root lifts audiences through the roof of Wrigleyville's Cubby Bear as the gallivanting band begins the first leg of its Fortunate Freaks 2012 tour. Since 1992, the diligent musicians have amassed fans like kindling by mixing driving rock and world-music influences. Playing tracks from its upcoming spring album mixed with mega hits such as “Send Me On My Way,” which has been heard in more movies and commercials than the Wilhelm scream, the band creates a live experience akin to pogo dancing in a sweat lodge. London punk-folk revelers Skinny Lister start the show with a rollicking round of sun-kissed anthems and heave-ho-ing shanties.
