    Eleven Eleven will give the Fire & Ice Lounge at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino the best of both worlds on Saturday with its pairing of original indie tunes and cover songs.
    A four-piece from Philadelphia, Pa., standout covers in Eleven Eleven's catalog includes MGMT's "Time to Pretend," Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," The Police's "Roxanne," Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison," Stone Temple Pilots' "Plush," The Who's "Pinball Wizard," Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out," Radiohead's "Creep" and The Isley Brothers' "Shout."
    Eleven Eleven is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Jeff Giuliani and drummer/DJ Rich Franchetta. These two have never played in a band without each other and have been rocking it for nearly 20 years. They started Eleven Eleven strictly as an original outfit and their accomplishments include six national album releases, which includes the "Unlovable" EP. And Franchetta and Giuliani eventually decided to direct more attention to playing covers to fund their future projects.
    Meet and-greet with celeb tattoo artist Amy Nicoletto
    WHAT Walls of Wonder Tattoo Studio re-grand opening
    WHEN Noon to 8 p.m., Saturday
    WHERE Walls of Wonder, 1044, S. Dupont Highway, Dover
    INFO Visit wallsofwondertattoos.com or (302) 730-9196
    Tattoo artist Amy Nicoletto of TLC's popular reality show "LA Ink," which ended in 2011 after four seasons, will appear at a meet-and-greet at Walls of Wonder Tattoo Studio on Saturday.
    And though she's nearly booked up, Nicoletto will likely be available to perform a couple of small ink jobs on site, so remember to bring a reference photo of what you'd like inked on your body, said Codi Canasa, the shop manager for Walls of Wonder.
    The meet-and-greet is part of Walls of Wonder's grand re-opening and will include refreshments and a DJ. The after party will be held at Bubba's Rock Shack! at 9 p.m. where Nicoletto will also be hanging out.
    A native of New Jersey, Nicoletto moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and landed a spot tattooing with Craig Jackman at his American Electric Tattoo studio. Shortly after, a casting person came into the shop and asked if anyone was interested in auditioning for a new tattoo reality show in West Hollywood, which turned out to be, you guessed it, "LA Ink," a spinoff of TLC's "Miami Ink."

    Although a number of cover bands can entertain crowds, 39 Mariner raises the bar further.
    In addition to nailing covers, these Jersey boys actually take the time to weave in choreography that will have you partying harder on the dance floor.
    You'll catch them in action at the Fire & Ice Lounge on Saturday.
    Some really sweet covers in 39 Mariner's repertoire includes Lionel Richie's "All Night Long," Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run," Hall & Oates' "You Make My Dreams," Young MC's "Bust a Move," Flo Rida's "Club Can't Handle Me," Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" and Prince's "Kiss."
