Stonerider and Aaron Irons
Years ago, there were a couple of bands called the Liabilities and the Pinx who would play in Macon and put on high-energy shows that would get everybody all wound up and having a good time. However, as bands go, they split up and went different ways. Now, Adam McIntyre (of the Pinx) brings his new band, Stonerider, to Macon for the first time. They are joined by Aaron Irons (of the Liabilities), who has decided to come out of seclusion and put his great song writing on stage again.
