Friday November 1st.
Drum Circle Forum at the Tubman African American Museum
Drum circles can be very infectious. You can easily get sucked into the rhythm whether you are drumming or just listening. Its easy to dismiss the idea as hippie stuff, but the drum is an ancient instrument that speaks to all since we all live by an inner rhythm -- a heartbeat. Even if you have some heart issues, you should look at it as a funky drum solo and come join in the drumming fun at the Tubman to kick off Novembers International Percussion Month. Its $3 to join in, or you can bring three canned goods to be donated to Loaves And Fishes. All ages. 6 p.m. For more information, call 743-8544.
Mic Harrison and the High Score at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Mic Harrison and the High Score, from Knoxville, Tenn., return to the Hummingbird for a night of music that is sometimes Gothic, sometimes hard driving, but always Southern. The band has released three albums since 2007 and they seem to survive on a healthy diet of touring. If you are a fan of alt-country, then this is your night, as their sound is full of twang and jangle. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Saturday November 2nd
Josh Roberts and the Hinges at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Its been a long time since we last saw Josh Roberts and the Hinges in Macon. Macon was once a regular stop for the Columbia, S.C., band, but in their absence theyve done a lot of touring and recording, releasing a new album entitled, Mighty Old Distance And Murky Old Time. Josh Roberts likes to say that the band walks a line that has the emotion of blues and country and the power of AC/DC. While that may be hard to imagine, they have used their unique style to win over some big names, and Ryan Monroe of Band Of Horses calls them his favorite band. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Wednesday November 7th
The Werks and the Dirty Sound Professors at Asylum
What happens when live music and electronic music collide? The Werks happens. This Dayton, Ohio, band crosses many genres as they get the party people dancing. The shows influences are as varied as rock, psychedelic, funk, dubstep and more. They have taken the jam-band scene by storm, redefining what that genre of music could be. They are joined by the Dirty Sound Professors from right here in Macon. Tickets are $7 in advance and can be purchased at The Tic Toc Room, Bearfoot Tavern and Dolce Vita, or $10 at the door. 10 p.m.
The Seth Winters Trio at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Seth Winters has moved from New York to Georgia to get things rolling with his new band. Now thats not something you hear too often. Usually its the other way around, but Winters felt that the Southern music scene was a better breeding ground for his sound. He seems to be correct in his thinking since Relix Magazine named him an artist on the verge. He will be making his Macon debut at one of downtowns favorite spots for live music, the Hummingbird. 21 and up. 9 p.m. Free.
