WHAT 52 Pick Up in concert
WHEN 9:30 p.m., Friday
WHERE Fire & Ice at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, 1131 North Dupont Highway, Dover
INFO Visit doverdowns.com or call 674-4600
Since cover bands are a dime-a-dozen, it's a treat when you hear a band that's akin to a silver dollar like 52 Pick Up.
The band will play at the Fire & Ice Lounge at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino tonight.
What makes 52 Pick Up at least two cuts above the rest is its catalog has a nice chunk of unique covers you don't hear every day. These tunes include Kanye West's "Stronger," 50 Cent's "P.I.M.P.," Rage Against The Machine's "Guerilla Radio," Red Hot Chilli Peppers' "Suck My Kiss," Nelly's "Ride Wit Me," Incubus' "Drive" and Kevin Rudolf's "Let it Rock."
Silvertung to give you a lickin'
WHAT Silvertung in concert
WHEN 9 p.m., Friday
WHERE The Green Stinger Sports Bar and Grill, 492 Walnut Shade Road, Dover
INFO Visit Facebook or call 698-3300
Four bands are coming to The Green Stinger Sports Bar and Grill this weekend and Silvertung will get the party started tonight.
Silvertung, a hard rock band, has carved out a fresh and infectious sound that's been framed on their debut full-length record, "The Pawn." Though the album was released in 2006, its songs have successfully stood the test of time, particularly the tunes "Slow Me Down," "Lies," "I am" and "Dig."
Currently, Silvertung is in the studio with producer/engineer Steven Wright, who has worked with national acts that include Slipknot, U.N.K.L.E, Misery Index, Drowning Pool, SR-71, Charm City Devils and Avril Lavigne.
As a live act, Silvertung puts on a powerhouse performance that keeps your heart racing and fist pumping in the air. This has earned them their solid reputation and a clan of growing fans known as "The Tung Nation."
WHAT Bad JuJu in concert
WHEN 9 p.m., Friday
WHERE Touchdown Restaurant, 1666 S. Dupont Highway, Dover
INFO Visit sportsfamilyrestaurantdover.com or call 674-0975
Have you ever heard a song that touched you, made you stop and think, or reminded you of a time in your life and made you pause long enough to reflect on it?
Bad JuJu hopes to create that moment when it gigs at the Touchdown Restaurant tonight.
The guys are inspired by legends such as Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Little Walter, Alvin Lee and Robert Johnson. Bad JuJu's style intertwines blues with Americana.
