Cousin Dan at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

The last time Cousin Dan came through Macon he caught a lot of people off guard. They didn’t know what hit them. The insanity, the lights, the leopard print, it was all too much! Well, not so much that people didn’t have a good time. This guy commanded the crowd and everyone left sweaty and flabbergasted at what they had just seen. Cousin Dan is one of the most entertaining electronic shows you will see. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.

The Groves at the Rookery

Tampa-based band the Groves gets their love for country music honestly. They practice and even record in a converted horse stable. However, their love of music doesn’t just stop at country, and so their style includes elements of psychedelic rock, blues, Americana and more. This up and coming band is fresh off their performance at the Wanee Music Festival. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
