Roger Riddle and Ployd
Beauty and Power is this months art exhibit at Roasted Cafe and Lounge, with art by Dewayne Kendrick and Atir Dudley. From 6-9 p.m. there will be live painting, spoken word poetry and hip-hop freestyles. All proceeds from art sales will go to helping Johnnie Farms pay for a kidney transplant. After 9 p.m., things heat up as DJ Roger Riddle takes on the DJ duties for the first time in three months, followed by a late-night dubstep set from DJ Ployd. 18 and up. Free.
There are voices and then there are voices that grab you and never let you go. Abby Owens is one of those voices for me. Her Southern country style and voice filled with soul and emotion fills you in a sort of way that makes you pay attention when shes singing. From the first note you know you are hearing something special. 10 p.m. 21 and up. $5.
Stranger Than Most
Stranger Than Most named itself as well as it possibly could have. For instance, what would you call a band that considers themselves a punk rock/reggae hybrid? (No, not Bad Brains.) This band belts out soulful wails and gently caresses the guitar until it struggles to get away, abuses the drum kit until it blows the whistle and calls a hot line, and rattles everything off the walls with equal parts thunderous basslines and force. The band will also be filming its performance at Roasted for a live DVD. Come join the fun! 10 p.m. 18 and up. Free.
Big Daddy and Company
After all this heat weve been through in the past week, I wouldnt blame you at all if all you wanted to do was get close to water. So, theres no better way to spend your Saturday evening than listening to the soulful bluesy sounds of Big Daddy and Company while sipping a cold cocktail on the dock at the Fish N Pig. Music starts at 7 p.m.
Second Sunday has moved to its summer hours, so this Sunday the fun begins at 7 p.m. in an effort to not cook us all to well done. This week, we will enjoy the sounds of Macons own Gringo Grande at Washington Park in downtown Macon. Their good time vibes will be just what Macon needs to help beat the heat of the past week. Bring a blanket, but no grills or tents. Family friendly. Free.
