WILMINGTON — The Stews, who formed out of Auburn University, brought their electric, energetic rock show to Wilmington on June 29.

Opening was a Wilmington fave, the rock duo Blue Footed Boobies, consisting of guitar and vocalist Logan Chaucer and drummer Sam Baker.

“Always love seeing them,” photographer Tom Dorgan said, praising Chaucer’s guitar ability, as he’s often seen playing behind his back or in various ways other than traditionally.

They greased up the stage for The Stews, who amped up the night and threw down for their first time playing Greenfield Lake Amphitheater.

The band debuted with the album “What Was” in April 2022 and released a four-song EP, “Lately/How It Ends,” recently. It will be followed up with a full LP, “Chicken Fight,” planned for a July 12 release — a combination of country, punk and blues.

The band played quite a few songs from their releases, old and new, as well as covered the Beatles’ “Come Together,” played with the Blue Footed Boobies.

Below are Dorgan’s snapshots from the show in Wilmington and the setlist.
