WHEN 7 p.m., Friday
WHERE World Café Live at The Queen, 500 N. Market St., Wilmington
INFO worldcafelive.com or (302) 994-1400
Half a dozen singer-songwriters will bring an assortment of flavors to your ears at World Café Live at The Queen in Wilmington tonight.
Performers sharing the bill are Ashley Leone, Orion Freeman, Sarah Donner, Sheltered Turtle, Tim Hein and Victoria Vox.
Keep an eye on the budding singer-songwriter Leone, a 17-year-old from Blue Bell, Pa. She's an acoustic/soul artist who's already had the pleasure of opening for big names like Drake, One Direction, Kelly Clarkson and the Motley Crew.
Leone's also played more than 100 shows, of which a number were notable venues such as Bitter End in New York, MilkBoy Coffee in Pennsylvania and a sold-out show at the Tin Angel, also in Pennsylvania.
Mystery Fyre to set Dogfish Head ablaze
WHAT Mystery Fyre in concert
WHEN 10 p.m., Saturday
WHERE Dogfish Head, 320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach
INFO dogfish.com or call (302) 226-2739
The late-bloomed flower children Mystery Fyre didn't get enough after gigging at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth Beach earlier this year.
So it's making the brewery the last stop on its first official tour — a three-state adventure that began Thursday in Thomas, W.Va., tonight they'll play in Hanover, Pa., and the tour will conclude Saturday night at Dogfish Head.
Featuring three young-adult brothers from Bloomsburg, Pa., who pine for sharing their homegrown psychedelic rock sound, Mystery Fyre is pumped for its return to Dogfish Head, a venue they debuted at during the winter months.
"It was awesome," beamed Wes Knorr, 26, the eldest brother. "[We] definitely [received] a very good reception and we had an amazing time."
Concertgoers will portal to the late '60s and early '70s with the vibrant tunes from Mystery Fyr's latest album, "Root of the Woo," released in June. The project was crafted from a palette of pastels layered with funky guitar solos and ambitious vocals, bookended with love and peace.
