Box Set Duo Trio


Mississippi Studios (map) North
Sun., Dec. 20, 8 p.m. 2015 21+


What's in a name? The folk/comedy duo of Jim Brunberg and Jeff Pehrson have played together for years as Box Set Duo, but after a hiatus and a reunion, they've added multi-instrumentalist Ben Landsverk, upping their ranks to a trio. The outfit's brand-new live disc, One Night Live, is therefore credited to Box Set Duo Trio, and if that weren't complicated enough, they've also got a new holiday EP called Three Wise Guys (credited to simply "Box Set"), and an actual box set, which is not called Box Set at all. (It is instead called Assembled.) The box includes both of the new releases along with some older stuff, but all you really need to know for tonight's show—at Brunberg's own venue, Mississippi Studios; he says, "I had to pull some serious strings to get the gig"—is to expect the duo/trio to play personable, harmony-driven folk songs with tons of wit and charisma.
