Turn it up

Delta Rae (left) is known as a folk rock act, yet such a flat description is no match for the electrifying tunes from this North Carolina-based sextet. On their debut album, Carry the Fire, the Hölljes siblings complement rich Carolina soul with rockharmonies a la Fleetwood Mac and the storytelling narratives of folklore and mythology. The result is a sound so powerful that Warner Bros. VP Seymour Stein personally signed the group to the label in 2011. $12-15, 7:30pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980
