The Ark / January 29
During the weekend of Ann Arbor’s annual Folk Festival haters may think the city has gone a little soft, so once again Tree Town Sound on 107.1 FM and the Blind Pig collaborate to beef up A2’s street cred and Folk the Police! On Sunday, January 29 some of the best folk, country and bluegrass groups in the area team up for a night of the illest covers of the best rap and hip-hop classics. The line up features Jamie Register, Dragon Wagon, Appleseed Collective, Rootstand, Back Forty, Lake Folk, Nathan K, Hana Malhas, Heroes On Parade and more turning their usual folksy twang into straight up gangsta tracks. Some of the names covered in the past range from NWA, Warren G, Wu-Tang and Snoop Dog. Don’t miss this much-talked-about event and see for yourself how thug upright bass and banjos can be. 8pm. $10. Blind Pig, 08 South 1st St. www.facebook.com/folkthepolice
