Friday November 16th
DJ Wet Paint & DJ Roger Riddle at the Rookery
Once a month, Macons own DJ Roger Riddle has been gathering his favorite DJs from the area for a night they have been calling No Requests ... Anything Goes. The idea is to give the DJs a night where they can break out of their mold and play all of the songs they want to play but cant because they may not be in the right setting. This month, he invites DJ Wet Paint, who is usually an electronic and dubstep DJ, for a night that will focus on old school and underground hip-hop, reggae and a healthy helping of soul and funk. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Yacht Rock Schooner at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Its been awhile since we have seen the wild bunch that is Yacht Rock Schooner. This group shows us that we did indeed enjoy the softer, more mellow sound of the late 70s to mid 80s rock that included Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, Hall and Oates, the Little River Band and more. They dont take themselves or the music they choose to cover too seriously, poking fun at the kitsch of it all. Things tend to get a little wild as people really let their hair down and have a good time at these shows. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Saturday November 17th
Wayne Mills and Boot Hill at the Cox Capitol Theatre
Wayne Mills is what many people would consider to be the true definition of a country boy done good. He grew up in northern Alabama, played baseball and then went on to play football at the University of Alabama. He graduated with a degree in education and then decided he would pick up a guitar and form a country band. His newest release is the single, She Knows The Words, and can be purchased through iTunes. Hell be joined on stage by Macons very own Boot Hill. If you are ready for a night of up and coming country music, this is your night. 18 and up. Doors open at 7 p.m. $10.
One Horse Parade and Trendlenberg at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
The diverseness of Macons current music scene is definitely something to celebrate. And One Horse Parade intends to celebrate on Saturday as they release their new EP. This Macon-based indie rock band has been earning their chops playing live shows around downtown, but they took some time to do some recording and are ready to present the end result. They will be joined by the ever-morphing electronic indie singer-songwriter Justin Cutway under his Trendlenberg moniker. 18 and up. 9 p.m. Free.
