"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" a Mr. Rogers Tribute 

When: Fri., Feb. 1, 8 p.m., Sat., Feb. 2, 2 p.m., Fri., Feb. 8, 8 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 9, 2 p.m. 2013
Grab your best cardigan and check out Won't You Be My Neighbor? a Mr. Rogers Tribute led by Jeff Medley on vocals, Josh Farmer on piano and the art of Jack Metcalf. These dudes are doing a note-for-note cover of the album.

The songs, strange as they are, will probably make an impression on adults and children alike with lyrics like "the very same people who are good sometimes are the very same people who are bad sometimes," and "It's you I like, whether you live in a dark house or a light house." But it's Medley's careful rendering—walking that fine line between playfulness and reverence—that makes this project so interesting.

Downtown Dance Collective, 121 W. Main St. 8 PM Fridays and 2 PM Saturdays. $10/$5, 18 and under.
