Weekend Watch: Neal Peterson
The man may be the same, but his songs have changed. That’s what you need to know before checking out former Fargoan Neal Peterson’s new disc, “Chaos Theory, Explained.” Gone are the stripped-down acoustic stylings of his first releases, replaced with electric beats and other amped-up sounds. What remains is the singer/guitarist’s knack for mining hooks with catchy melodies. Hear for yourself when Peterson plugs in at The Aquarium, 226 Broadway in Fargo, on Friday for a CD release show. Darren Keen, Mark Proulx and Michael Pink round out the bill. There is a $5 cover for this 21-and-older show, with music starting at 10 p.m. (701) 235-5913.
