Hardcore country cats
Dewey Beach consistently attracts national country artists. Next on deck is the country-rock trio The Cadillac Three, with openers Caleb Lee Hutchinson and the Blues Cat Blues Band. Although they're branded as country, The Cadillac Three can get pretty heavy. They’re one of the few country acts to share the stage with metal bands Slayer and Metallica. In fact, it’s easy to watch The Cadillac Three and assume they’re a rock outfit. But country artists, especially over the last 10 years, have shown that folks in their genre can deliver some intense shows, too. The Cadillac Three hits the Bottle & Cork (1807 Highway One, Dewey Beach) at 7 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $30. For more info, visit bottleandcork.com or call (302) 227-7272.
Dad of famous band gigs in Lewes
Jim Avett, the father of the famed Avett Brothers, will play an intimate concert-dinner show. The Southern-style meal is included in the ticket and includes wine or cocktails with each course. The 74-year-old music artist from North Carolina is a navy veteran who married a gal named Susan. The pair produced three children: Bonnie, Seth and Scott: the latter two are siblings in the popular folk-rock band the Avett Brothers.
You can catch their dad in action at The Room at Cedar Grove (32882 Cedar Grove Road, Lewes) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday. Tickets are $95. Seating is limited. To reserve a ticket or for more info, visit paulcullen.rocks.
