Sonny Til and the Orioles’ “Too Soon to Know’’ may not be the first rock ’n’ roll record, as Greil Marcus claims, but one thing’s for sure: As an example of doo-wop at its most mystical, only Nolan Strong and the Diablos’ “The Wind’’ approaches the ethereal grandeur of that R&B gem, which sold 80,000 copies within a week of its release in 1948. Sonny has long been singing with the angels, but even in their fifth decade the legendary Orioles endure. With Charles Newton & the Dream at 8 p.m. at Phantasmagoria, 11319 Elkin St.,Wheaton. $12. (301) 949-8886. (Eddie Dean)
