Pig Out schedule

Below is a press release containing the schedule Saturday's 2nd-ever Troy Pig Out:

The Second Ever Troy Pig Out is will proceed rain or shine this weekend, with a few tweaks in its musical lineup.

Organizers have added venerable Irish act the McKrell’s to the lineup Saturday evening, and shifted Ernie Williams to earlier in the afternoon due to a scheduling snafu. New York City based rockers Ice Wagon Flu will headline the show. The Pig Out has more than 12 hours of live music planned for this weekend. The complete music schedule is:
