These three events have your name on them this weekend.
WHAT The Way We Wore, presented by Biggs Museum of American Art
WHEN 7 to 8 p.m., Friday
WHERE Biggs Museum of American Art, 406 Federal St., Dover
INFO Visit biggsmuseum.org or call 674-2111
One of the highlights of the 81st annual Dover Days Festival is the Biggs Museum of American Art’s program that reveals the influences that changed women’s clothing from 1780-1980 in a lecture titled The Way We Wore, held at the Biggs on Friday evening.
Guest speaker Karen Jessee will use history and humor to explain how women went from bustles to bell bottoms. Since there isn’t fashion without foundation, Jessee will also peek underneath to show the many ways women are padded, pinched and cinched into the latest style. Pieces of vintage and historic clothing from Jessee’s personal collection and fashion study in England will be displayed.
3 to see at Jonathan’s Landing
WHAT Moreland & Arbuckle in concert
WHEN 8 p.m., Friday
WHERE Jonathan’s Landing Golf Course, 1309 Ponderosa Drive, Magnolia
COST Free; donations welcome

The Moreland & Arbuckle trio will give Magnolia an evening to remember when they perform its homegrown roots, blues-rock sound at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Course tonight.
Last year Moreland & Arbuckle released its latest album, “7 Cities,” which is the band’s most ambitious to date. The album tells the story of Spanish explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado and his fabled search for the seven cities of gold in the Kansas plains, not far from where the band lives in Wichita, Kan.
“7 Cities” is a catchy project, which debuted at no. 8 on Billboard’s Blues Chart. The album includes the vintage rock song “Kow Tow,” along with a surprising version of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” which is rooted in the spirit of the delta blues.
Otherworldly musical adventure
WHAT Telesma in concert
WHEN 6:30 p.m., Saturday
WHERE Cooldog Concert Series, private house concert in Kenton (address will be provided after RSVP)
COST $15 for adults; $10 for ages 10-18 and active military

The Telesma experience is much more than a concert with feel-good rhythms and compelling vocals. It’s a spiritual journey. Telesma is a psychedelic, tribal-rock band that blends ancient and modern instrumentation with soul.
Telesma’s unique sound, often described as “electro-acoustic psychedelic world dance music,” is driven by the ancient sound of the wind instrument didgeridoo and the kubing, a bamboo mouth harp, tribal drums, percussion and the human voice. These elements are fused with modern instruments and technology to create a diverse sound ranging from intense polyrhythmic rock ‘n’ roll to ambient melodic meanderings, to trance-like pulses.
Telesma sets itself apart with its intoxicating music and uncanny live performances.
The eclectic band will headline at the Cooldog Concert Series in Kenton on Saturday.
