We Five – Folk Rock Revival comes to the Auburn Riverside Theater for a 7 p.m. show Saturday, Jan. 19, part of the Great Western Concert series.

The group also performs at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20 at the IKEA Performing Arts Center, 400 S. Second St., Renton.

Doors open an hour before each show.

We Five, a 1960s folk rock musical group out of San Francisco, is best known for the hit single "You Were On My Mind" in 1965 for which they received an Emmy nomination. This is a moving, up-beat folk-rock concert with many of your favorite '60s hits not only from We Five but many other groups of the period.

Opening for We Five will be Portland's Three Together, with more beautiful harmonies and 1960s music.

The theater at Auburn Riverside High School is at 501 Oravetz Road SE.

Tickets are $10-$25. Order online at www.brownpapertickets.com, or call 1-800-838-3006. Tickets also are available at the door before the concert.
