All this week, the annual Beta Hi-Fi competition has showcased a variety of new, local bands at World Cafe Live. The shows have been a great way to get to know emerging artists in the region and tonight marks the final set of performances for the week. The groups were chosen by the audience’s votes, so all your favorites will be on stage tonight. The show starts at 7 and best of all (besides the great new music) is that it’s free.

Salt-N-Pepa gained fame in the 80s as one of the first rap groups composed of entirely women. Releasing their first and incredibly successful album, Hot, Cool & Viscious in 1986, the group continued to release solid albums until breaking up at the end of the 90s. Luckily, they got back together (thanks in part to reality TV), and although they haven’t made a new album, Salt N Pepa is on tour. Tonight, they’ll play the Dell Music Center headlining a similarly old-school lineup of Big Daddy Kane, Kool Moe D, Biz Markie and Force MDS.

A legend in her own right, Rosanne Cash, the daughter of singer Johnny Cash has become known for her unique brand of country, which blends in elements of folk, pop and blues. Although she hasn’t released a proper studio album since 2009s The List, her albums have been praised by critics and her live performances are fantastic as well. Tonight, you can catch the singer at Sellersville Theater. Click here for ticket information and check out a Cash song below.
