    Founded only three years ago, Tennessee’s Southern Drawl Band has played at many of the nation’s leading venues, reaching more than 20,000 people.
    The Southern Drawl Band serves up a casserole of sounds, attitude and entertainment. The band’s music is defined in categories such as country, Southern rock, trop rock, and bluegrass, garnering it a broad spectrum of fans. The musicians’ ability to play multiple styles of music proves the guys are always stretching and challenging themselves to keep their sound fresh for their loyal listeners.
    Another important attribute about the Southern Drawl is the exceptional songwriting and musicianship displayed by the group.

    WHAT Plot Twist in concert
    WHEN 9 p.m., Friday
    WHERE Touchdown Restaurant, 1666 S. Dupont Highway, Dover
    INFO Call 674-0975
    When a band performs a repertoire that includes R. Kelly’s “Ignition,” Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing in the Name” with The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence” ─ that’s called a plot twist. Three musicians have crafted a band around that concept and have appropriately dubbed themselves Plot Twist. Adding more suspense to their performances, the band also stitches in some of its original songs.
    Founded in 2013, Plot Twist is a confident power-trio that the Delmarva area should keep an eye on. Locals will have the opportunity to see the band in action tonight at Touchdown Restaurant.
