Concert news: Ziggy Marley, Pigtown Festival, Crooked Fingers

At least one Marley will perform in the area this Fall.

Damian Marley had been scheduled to perform at Summer Spirit Festival at Merriweather this August, but the show, which also had Nas on the bill, was unexpectedly cancelled.

Then on Monday, it was announced Damian's older brother, Ziggy Maryley, would perform at the new Fillmore October 30. Tickets for the show, which start at $30, go on sale Friday.

The date and line-up for the 10th Pigtown Festival was announced Sunday. Erin McKeown ("Slung-Lo"), Baltimore's Soul Cannon, Karter Jaymes and Margot MacDonald will perform September 17 at the free festival, which takes place between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. on the 700-900 blocks of Washington Boulevard.

McKeown is a folk musician in the vein of Ani DiFranco; Soul Cannon is a hip hop quartet; Jaymes is a Baltimore two-time Grammy nominee and MacDonald is a 19-year-old Washington D.C. pop vocalist.

In addition to live music, there will also be food, arts and crafts vendors and the annual Running of the Pigs event.

The late 90s band Crooked Fingers, back with Merge Records for new album "Breaks in the Armor," has announced a new string of shows.

The band, which went independent in 2008 and has now rejoined their old label Merge, will perform in Virginia at Iota, 2832 Wilson Blvd Arlington, on November 1. Ticket information is not yet available.
