Sugar and adrenaline will be on the menu at Lemon Grove Cafe when Dan Miraldi makes his Youngstown debut.
The Cleveland-area rocker expects to play several tracks from his ''Sugar & Adrenaline'' album, which is set for release on July 17.
The title reflects the mix of pop and rock sounds that influence his music.
''You'll hear some gritty rock 'n' roll and also some acoustic-driven pieces,'' Miraldi said. ''There are elements of the White Stripes, elements of the Rolling Stones and Beatles. I have a lot of older influences but also newer things. It's a mishmash of influences.''
The Beatles and the Stones are a big enough influence that they inspired his backing band's name, the Albino Winos (Alex Bowers, guitar; Joe LaGuardia, bass; and Sarah Luffred, drums). Miraldi said he strives for the mix of styles and sounds heard on The Beatles ''White Album'' (Albino). And when Keith Richards is taking a break from Mick and the gang, he calls his solo project the X Pensive Winos.
Miraldi, 25, already has released a full-length album and two EPs since graduating from the College of Wooster in 2009. He also was a founding member of the Washington, D.C.-based band The Silver Liners and played with that group from 2009 to 2011.

''Sugar & Adrenaline'' reflects his musical maturity and greater comfort in the studio, he said.
''The earlier stuff had more of a live feel,'' Miraldi said. ''This has a bigger studio sound.''
That is reflected in the opening track, ''Few Rock Harder,'' which Miraldi called one of his favorites.
''Some of my songs are written really quickly,'' he said. ''That one percolated in the mind over several months. I had these fragments of songs written and then one day I saw how it all fit together ... It has this classic rock riff but also a dancing synth and bass line and really fun harmonies. I'm really happy with how the lyrics turned out.''
Saturday will be the first time Miraldi has shared a bill with Full Moon Canoe and The Grease Monkeys.
''I think its going to be a cool concert,'' Miraldi said. ''There's more of an indie rock vibe from Full Moon Canoe and then a very fun retro '60s garage rock meets early '60s surf rock from The Grease Monkeys, and then us in the middle. It should be a great night of music.''
