Tribute to Johnny Jenkins
Friday at the Douglass Theatre
A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on how great it would be if we expanded our Walk of Fame and included Johnny Jenkins. Little did I know that it was already in the works. Friday, the Douglass will unveil Johnny Jenkins Walk of Fame square with a night of celebrating the great musicians career. This free event will include a concert with local musicians paying tribute to the music of Johnny Jenkins. All ages. 7 p.m. Free.
G2 Bluegrass Band
Friday at the Juliette Opry
The G2 Bluegrass Band has come all the way from Sweden to show their respect and love for bluegrass -- the musical tradition that Georgia holds dear. These Swedish pickers do not disappoint. They are fiery and fast with clean notes and great harmonies. Get ready for a head nodding and foot tapping good time in beautiful Juliette. All ages. 7:30 p.m. $20 at the door; free for kids 12 and younger.
Friday at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
Friday is Go Skateboarding Day and Macons skaters are planning several fun events. After all the skateboarding events of the day are finished, head to Roasted to hear New Orleans jam band Earphunk. An up and coming favorite of the festival circuit, Earphunk has performed alongside some of the biggest names in the jam band festival game. 18 and up. 10 p.m. $5 at the door; $3 if you bring your skateboard.
Floco Torres & Brandon Brains
Saturday at Grants Lounge
There seems to be an underground movement to bring more hip-hop to Macon that avoids talk about drugs and money and goes after issues of everyday life and society. Floco Torres has always been at the forefront of Macons music scene when it comes to lyrics that reach further into the thinking cap. Now, he teams up with Nashvilles Brandon Brains to bring you the Player Select Tour featuring Lukey Cage and B. Dave. 21 and up. 8:30 p.m. $5.
Tuesday at the Rookery
They love their reggae over at the Rookery. You can walk in for lunch sometimes and the radio is playing this easygoing music, setting everyone in the room at ease. So it only makes sense that they team up with Macons favorite reggae artist Dean Brown to bring you a Tuesday night full of good vibes. Enjoy Dean Browns music and half price drafts. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
