Louise Warren

Friday at the Fish N’ Pig

The weather has been so beautiful lately. This is the perfect time to head out to the Fish N’ Pig and have a great meal and hear some music! Louise Warren is Macon’s singer-songwriter darling. During the past year, she has played just about every place a person can play in Macon. She’s a favorite and her sweet sounds will be the perfect accompaniment to a cocktail and a nice breeze on the Fish N’ Pig deck. 7 p.m. Free.

Ponderosa

Friday at the Rookery

Atlanta’s Ponderosa has been known as an indie-rock band with their roots planted in Southern rock and country. With their newest album, “Pool Party,” they show that their influences run much deeper than what would be expected from a Georgia band. They take their listeners in a new direction, one that is more psychedelic and dreamy. This new style still works with the Ponderosa music ethic and just lends another dimension to their sound. They will be joined by 100 Watt Horse for a great night of music. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Mama’s Love

Friday at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

Mama’s Love has stopped by Macon a few times and they have found a growing group of music lovers who enjoy their progressive Athens style. These guys take their music seriously. Their sound is as catchy and infectious in their melodies and hooks as it is technical in their rhythms and song structures. Influences such as Little Feat and the Grateful Dead shine through but share space with experimentation and new styles. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.

Mystery Road

Saturday at the Hanger Bar and Grill

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from Mystery Road. Now, they are back with their first show of 2013. Mystery Road defines their sound as “liberating music.” They play funk, soul, jazz, classic rock and anything else that feels good to them and to the crowd. 21 and up. 9 p.m. Free.

The Big House Remembers Jodie

Sunday at the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House

Jodie McNeil Gooch was a lover of music and a supporter of the Macon music scene. When news hit the community that Jodie passed away in March, everyone was devastated. She was full of kind words and encouragement, a smile and a laugh. She loved the Allman Brothers and she volunteered regularly at the Big House. To celebrate the life of the Macon music scene’s dear friend, the Big House is holding a free concert featuring music from Scott Little, Just Us, Vic Stanley, the Neal Lucas Band, Mike Causey, Louise Warren, Josh Graff, Travis Denning, the GABBA All-Stars and more. Coolers, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. All ages. Music starts at 2 p.m. Free.
