Southern Persuasion

Friday at the Fish N’ Pig

Let the good times keep on rolling! A cruel trick was played on us by having July Fourth fall on a Thursday and then we have to go back to work on Friday before we start the weekend. Well joke’s on you, whoever made this year’s calendar! Southern Persuasion is bringing their good time country music to the Fish N’ Pig on Friday. Enjoy good food, cold cocktails and a nice breeze on the deck as we keep the celebration rolling. All ages. 7:30 p.m. Free admission.

Boothill

Friday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

Whenever Richard King and Boothill turn up for a show, there is a guaranteed good time scheduled for that night. Some may call their music country. Some may say Southern rock. Without a doubt it’s whiskey fueled and full steam ahead. Call up your friends and get them all together for a night of foot stomping and dancing! 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Mile Train

Saturday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

Carrollton’s Mile Train plays music that fits perfectly in a dark, smoky room. While rock ’n’ roll is undoubtedly an influence on this young band, their love of the blues runs deep and they wear it on their sleeve for all to see and hear. Their blues guitars and traveling man lyrics should be enjoyed with a smoke in one hand and a whiskey in the other. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Veara and We Still Dream

Thursday at the 567 Center for Renewal

Get ready for a night of pop punk as the 567 Center for Renewal hosts six up-and-coming high-energy bands. Augusta’s Veara headlines this night of music.
