The Skivvies: Live and Literally In-Person!

May 26 and 27

Live, In-Person in the Marx Theatre
A comedy-pop, "undie"-rock event! Performing stripped down arrangements of eclectic covers and eccentric originals, not only is the music stripped down — cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica — but the Skivvies (Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley) literally strip down to their underwear to perform.
