ARTS Pick: We Were Pirates

We Were Pirates brainchild Mike Boggs leaves nothing to chance when he takes the stage. The multi-instrumentalist has been known to play guitar, keys and drums, in addition to singing lead vocals during the band’s performances. Boggs’ songs are pure pop that works nicely for film soundtracks like the documentary Dear Mr. Watterson, and they’re regularly featured on NPR’s “This American Life.” WWP’s most recent album, Matter, flows with melodic, electronic vibes and a hint of rock ‘n’ roll. Michael Coleman opens.

Saturday 6/25. Free, 8pm. The Garage, 100 W. Jefferson St.
