The new generation of New Orleans funk-rock continues to thrive in the Big Easy with the hard-hitting sounds of Flow Tribe, which will serve its gumbo-flavored tunes at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth Beach on Friday.
You'll hear tunes from Flow Tribe's new EP, "Painkiller," which was released in May.
"Painkiller" harnesses the electricity and personality of Flow Tribe's one-of–a-kind live show and condenses it into a digitally mastered creation of animated guitar licks and strong bass that's sure to groove you to the core. With its nuances of interjecting horns, the EP gives listeners a feeling New Orleans is famed for: rock and blues laced with funk.

While some people do, many still don't know that Bob Marley lived in Wilmington during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
For years Marley's former Wilmington roommates and close friends Ibis and Genny Pitts have presented the People's Festival in Wilmington, a popular event featuring tons of vendors, festivalgoers and reggae bands in honor of the late Marley.
Before the 19th annual People's Festival kicks off on Saturday, Kevin McDonald's documentary "Marley" will be appropriately screened on Friday at the World Café Live at The Queen in Wilmington. After the film, Marley's son, Stephen, will treat patrons to an acoustic performance.
Old Crow Medicine Show glides to Grand Opera House
WHAT Old Crow Medicine in concert
WHEN 8 p.m., Saturday

INFO Visit thegrandwilmington.org or call (800)-374-7263.
Grammy Award-winning outfit Old Crow Medicine Show will land at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington on Saturday.
In 2011, Old Crow embarked on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to Louisiana, playing gigs along the way. The magic of this musical excursion was captured in Emmett Malloy's documentary, "Big Easy Express."
This year, Old Crow Medicine Show, along with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, won a Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video for the film.
Considering Old Crow started off busking on street corners in New York and up to Canada, their Grammy is a reminder that hard work does pay off. The Americana band has since gone on to sell more than 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on Garrison Keillor's radio show, "A Prairie Home Companion," and play renowned festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.
In May, Old Crow's classic single, "Wagon Wheel," received the RIAA's Platinum certification for selling more than 1 million copies.
