  • Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Bitchin' Bajas perform March 24-25.

The Music Box Village debuted its new, permanent home last year, revealing a forest-like venue and performance space with a stage made up of music-making "houses" sculpted at its adjoining warehouse on the Mississippi River. Artists and musicians incorporate sounds from the village into their performance.

To kick off the Music Box Village's spring 2017 season, New Orleans soul and R&B outfit Tank and the Bangas returns to the village with an Alice in Wonderland-inspired set. The band performs 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, March 5. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy — singer-songwriter Will Oldham — teamed up with spaced-out drone band Bitchin' Bajas for 2016's meditative, improv-heavy Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties (Drag City). Seemingly a perfect fit for the Music Box and its arrangements, Oldham and the band will perform at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, March 24-25. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
