When's the last time you went to a square dance (and, no, watching an episode of "Andy Griffith" with the Darlings on it doesn't count)?

Admit it: you've NEVER been to a square dance.

Well, no time like the present. The New Apocalyponians, a Massachusetts musical ensemble nimbly acquainted with all the joyous nuances of "world hillbilly" music, will present their varied sonic palette through a Square Dance prism tonight at the Orphanage in New London. Caller Jennifer Steckler will conduct the proceedings, and New London's own acoustic duo, Dan & Liz, will open the show with excellent mood-setting tuneage.

Oh, and though the Orphanage address is on State Street, the door is on the back of the building in an alley. Follow the signs.


The New Apocalypsonians with Dan & Liz, 7 p.m. tonight, the Orphanage, 300 State St., New London; $5 suggested donation;
