Maryland native Joe Pug left filmaking in college to pursue music in Chicago. By day a carpenter, Pug used any space he could find to record his EP. A decade later, Pug's work has an overwhelming feel of authenticity, relying on his steely guitar-picking and rich vocals. Seamlessly updating the country-folk genre for modern audiences, his latest album Windfall finds the artist meeting emotional turmoil with optimism and resilience. Pug has toured with the best of contemporary singer-songwriters, including Steve Earle, M. Ward, and Josh Ritter and performed Lollapalooza and the Newport Folk Festival. Special guest Juanita Stein will open the show at 8pm. More information about Joe Pug can be found on Facebook , Twitter , Instagram or his website .
