The Experiment with Paul Swytch
Friday at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
Roasted stays on the cutting edge of the music scene here in Macon, offering up the other worldly sounds of the electronic realm. Pail Swytch of TrillBass is one of the best in what could be described as psychedelic dubstep. He blurs the line between electronic music, hip-hop and psychedelic with such ease it has earned him remix duties for big names in hip-hop and electronic dance. This night also will feature the unveiling of new artwork from Middle Georgias creative couple Stagger N Apple. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
Friday at the Rookery
The Canada-based Diamond Dust has been touring their way across North America, riding on the back of their gritty rock n roll sounds. However, while gritty rock is fun, thats not enough for these classic rock lovers. They understand the importance of good songwriting as well. When the sweet voice and well written lyrics meet the rock loving guitar, Diamond Dust creates something special. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
