Staying true to their name, local theater troupe Taffety Punk is debuting some exclusive tunes from Dischord vet Ryan Nelson. Nelson, who previously played with Most Secret Method and Beauty Pill, works for Dischord and—-according to Taffety Punk’s website—-provided the ambitious company with unreleased tunes from his bands Soccer Team and Routineers to use in the third week of its Dance Craze series, accompanying a piece by Taffety co-founder Erin Mitchell.

You can catch the punk-addled performance on Friday at 8 p.m. and on Saturday at 3 and 8 p.m. at Capital Hill Arts Workshop on 545 7th St. SE. $10.
UPDATE: There will also be live music composed and performed by David Arbury (The Better Automatic, Resin Records).
