Penny and the Bandits is a collection of Twin Cities-based musicians, put together by performer Jen Scott

She writes short catchy indie-folk character and story songs

If Andrew Bird is a scalpel, or if that guy from the Mountain Goats is a Dungeon Master, Jen is a tiny hammer.  

She's played at a variety of Twin Cities venues, from theaters to Mary Jo Pehl's Garage of the Performing Arts.
