A conglomeration of Pennsylvania music, and of varying tones, will come together at Scranton's Vintage Theater tonight.


Pittsburgh-based independent rock band Instead of Sleeping formed in the winter of 2008 and released The Reds, The Blacks, and The Grays in fall 2012.


Instead of Sleeping consists of Corey McClaine, Shaun Sweeney, Jeff Binando and Woody Wright, a quartet whose sound has evolved to use multiple instruments such as two drum kits, horns and keys, among various other sounds.


Joining Instead of Sleeping is local folk singer Katie Kelly with her backing band The Charming Beards.


Finally, Those Clever Foxes, a punk/post-hardcore indie band from Scranton, also will take part in the show, which begins at 8 tonight.


This is the season-opening weekend for Mauch Chunk Opera House, and the entertainment venue is starting it off with a fun and rowdy show.



Dancin' Machine, a group that focuses on disco-era hits, will take the stage at 8 p.m. tomorrow in all its glitz and glam.


The 10-piece assembly plays everything from Boogie Shoes to Stayin' Alive.


Funky tunes will continue at River Street Jazz Café at 10 tomorrow night with Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band.


The group has been around since 2002 and released its first album, Now You Know, in 2007. Shortly afterward, it received Home Grown Music Network's Album of the Year and Band of the Year awards, as well as the No. 3 best regional album from WNCW, one of the top Triple A stations in the country. Its sophomore album, Doin' It Hard, was released in 2011.


The group is made up of Lee Allen on drums, Mary Frances on keys and vocals, Greg Hollowell on tenor sax, bari sax and flute, Derrick Johnson on trombone, Al Ingram on bass and vocals and JP Miller on guitar and vocals.
