Ants on a Log in Greenfield and Amherst // FRIDAY & SATURDAY

Philly-based children’s music duo Ants on a Log (one half of which is dear friend and creative powerhouse Anya Rose) is coming to the Valley for a couple of performances this weekend. Their music tackles some interesting subjects, including dealing with a sock puppet that can’t stop mansplaining, shutting down oil refineries, and the scourge of most outings: waiting in line. Friday, Aug. 2. 3 p.m. Just Roots Farm, 34 Glenbrook Dr., Greenfield. Saturday, Aug. 3, 10 a.m., Jones Library, 43 Amity St., Amherst. 413-259-3091. — Dave Eisenstadter
