Not Waving But Drowning, based in Brooklyn, N.Y., is not picky when it comes to instrumentation.
The "junkyard cabaret" plays anything that sounds cool and resonates well, including repurposed household items such as pots, pans, chains, saws and glass bottles, as well as a variety of stringed instruments, including viola, guitar, banjolele, mandolin, bass and Stroh violin (a horn violin).

Members Pinky Weitzman, Mason Brown, John Frazier and Matthew Talmage put a theatrical spin on their shows and draw from a diverse repertoire, ranging from sea shanties and Appalachian reels to whiskey-drenched blues, gypsy punk and straight-up rock 'n' roll.

The band will present a free show at 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 28, at The Playwright Public House, 258 A St., Ashland. Call 541-488-9128.
