Stillwater Reunion the Cox Capitol Theatre
Stillwater gets together once a year for a good Southern rock-style time. If you are unfamiliar with Stillwater, they had an impressive hit with the 1977 single, Mindbender, on Capricorn Records. While members of the band now play in other projects, including local Middle Georgia band the Wall, once a year they get together with old friends and relive the good ole days by making new memories and sharing good music. All ages. 8 p.m. $20.
Saturday December 29
Perpetual Groove at the Cox Capitol Theatre
You already know, when Perpetual Groove is coming to Macon, its going to be a great night out. P-Groove (as they are called by their fans) is known for playing very dance-worthy jam music and for having one of the greatest light shows on the touring circuit. P-Groove released their most recent album in 2009, but the best way to experience this group is through their live shows. Fun for long time fans as well as the uninitiated. 9 p.m. $15.
Brock Butler at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
If you havent had enough music after leaving the Perpetual Groove show, you can head on over to Roasted Cafe and Lounge to catch Brock Butler of P-Groove play a rare acoustic solo set immediately after the show. Butler was enrolled at SCAD working on his degree in video and film production when he met and joined P-Groove. Heres your chance to hear this incredible talent in a close, intimate setting. 18 and up. Music starts after the Perpetual Groove show ends. Free.
Mag Tard and One Horse Parade at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
Its been a long time since weve seen Mag Tard play a live show. The wild and tongue in cheek Macon band enjoys rocking out and doing things differently while not taking themselves too seriously. They will ring in the new year with One Horse Parade. One Horse Parade just recently burst on the scene as a major player in Macons indie-rock scene. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
Col. Bruce Hampton at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Col. Bruce Hampton is the hardest working retired musician in the world, Im sure. Many Col. Bruce fans were upset when the former Aquarium Rescue Unit rocker decided he was going to kick back and relax for bit. However, apparently by kick back and relax he meant play a few more shows here and there when the fancy strikes. I think he just loves Macon so he keeps coming back. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
