Big things come in small packages, like the honey badger.
Despite being a pint-sized fur ball, the creature can hold its own against larger predators with its sharp claws and teeth, its tough and rubbery skin and its valiant heart.
Singer-songwriters Michael Natrin and Erin Magnin share a lot in common with the mighty honey badger, which is why they’ve adopted its name.
The pair are known for their intense, unique harmonies and their sincere lyrics and melodies. Although Natrin (vocals, guitar, mandolin and harmonica) and Magnin (vocals, fiddle, glockenspiel and harmonium) are only two people, they put on mighty good shows that make audiences forget that they’re bringing the noise without a backing band.
The Honey Badgers’ folk/Americana sound has been likened to that of The Civil Wars and The Swell Season. The duo formed in 2011 and have since released their debut EP, “Booth Bay,” as well as a collection of recordings entitled “Mad Season.” The Honey Badgers have played in the tri-state area and throughout Delaware, from the Delmarva Folk Festival in Hartly to the World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington. The pair have also opened for the national touring act The Lone Bellow, as well as local Wilmington favorite New Sweden.
You can see the fearless Honey Badgers in action tonight as they take on 33 West Ale House & Grille.

Glass Onion will have a number of musical genres to peel back in its performance at Tom’s Bullpen on Saturday.
A regular at Tom’s Bullpen and elsewhere in the Delmarva area, Glass Onion’s unpredictable repertoire spans tunes from the 1960s to current top-40 hits. Some of the musical acts the band covers include ZZ Tops, The Temptations, Elvis Pressley, Kool & The Gang, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Doobie Brothers and Maroon 5. And there’s more where that came from.
Glass Onion has created a sweet blend of dance songs with plenty of audience participation to have the crowd feel like they’re rocking on stage with them.
