Opelika’s Cottonseed Studios welcomes the Texas-based band “Penny & Sparrow” and special guest Joy Oladokun to perform at John Emerald Distilling Company Nov. 13 from 7-11 p.m. to promote their latest album “Wendigo.”
The duo, Kyle Jahnke and Andy Baxter created their band in 2011 while at the University of Texas together, and since then have released five studio albums. Wendigo was released in September 2017.
When asked in an interview by, Baxter described the theme of the album as the study of fear.
“Essentially, a lot of the songs on this record meander in and around dark corners of stuff that scare us in this life,” Baxter said.
General admission tickets are available for $20 along with VIP ticket options. The American soft-folk duo will kickoff the tour Nov. 2 in Utah and conclude Dec. 7 in Texas.
