Pierce, all meant to raise the hair on the back of your neck. Shows are at 8pm tonight, 4pm or 9pm Sat, and 5:30pm Sun at the big tent in the parking lot across from Miss Angeline’s (126 E Oak St, @CirqueduHorror). Tickets are $20 on Prekindle.com.

Afallon Productions and Fort Brewery & Pizza (2737 Tillar St, 817-923-8000) present Mike & The Moonpies at 7pm. When the COVID-19 pandemic brought the Moonpies’ busy touring schedule to a halt, the Austin-based country band used the extra time to its advantage. Frontman Mike Harmeier headed to his backyard studio. The resulting album, One to Grow On, took shape during the months of isolation, and now the band is touring with a shiny new product in hand. Seating is first come, first served at this free, all-ages, doggo-friendly show.
