Hymn For Her at the Rookery
This husband and wife duo travels the road in a 1961 Airstream stopping and playing gigs all along the way. The last few times they played in Macon it was to really small crowds who were blown away by the performances. Their arsenal of instruments reads like a hoedown shopping list: harmonica, cigar box guitar, banjo, broomstick bass, bass drum and high-hat. They will set Friday night on fire at the Rookery. This is one of this weekends must see shows. 10 p.m. 21 and up. Free.
Red Zeppelin and Back City Woods at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
In about one of the oddest combinations you will see in Macon, the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom has teamed up Macon favorites Back City Woods, with their alt-bluegrass stylings, with Red Zeppelin, a Led Zeppelin tribute band from Atlanta. This night may prove to be more fun than anyone can expect from two radically different bands. 10 p.m. 21 and up. $5.
