Some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. Fresh off the release of their new album “The Amulet,” Philly rockers Circa Survive will come to Wilmington for an emotional night filled with lots of sweat.
The national band was formed by former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green with guitarist Colin Frangicetto -- both of them veterans of the local emo and hardcore scenes -- looking to indulge in the rule-breaking freedom of the neo-progressive movement of the mid-2000s.
After Green and Frangicetto discovered like-minded bandmates in second guitarist Brendan Ekstrom, bassist Nick Beard and drummer Steve Clifford, Circa Survive recorded the album “Juturna” for Equal Vision Records in 2005.
Lots of touring followed, including Warped Tour dates, and the album steadily sold an impressive 100,000 copies.
In 2017, the band dropped “The Amulet,” their sixth studio release.
Circa Survive will get the party started at The Queen, 500 N. Market St., Wilmington at 7:30 p.m., Saturday. COST $22.50. INFO thequeenwilmington.com or (202) 730-3331.
2. Keith Call will hone the moves of Mick Jagger, alongside Bernie Bollendorf assuming the role of rock icon Keith Richards, as the duo The Glimmer Twins.
Whether it’s the signature saxophone solo in “Brown Sugar” to the unforgettable backing vocals in “Gimme Shelter,” every detail has been accounted for by this eight-piece band.
The concert, presented by Classic Stones Live, has all of the songs that are staples of any Rolling Stones show.
