One would think that there’s no such thing as trimming the fat when it comes to simmering local band One Ton Pig. A large ensemble with respect to bluegrass bands, the six-piece has a lot to offer outside of its seven-year residence as the Tuesday night house band at the Silver Dollar Bar. Scaling back to unplugged acoustic instruments, this is your chance to hear the band’s original music in all of its glory before they hit the road for a weeklong tour of Colorado. One Ton Pig, 8 p.m. Thursday at Dornan’s in Moose. $12 at Valley Bookstore and Dornan’s. 733-2415.
