Friday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
What do you get when an acoustic three-piece band says they play everything from Johnny Cash to Prince? You get a rocking good time. The Unmentionables always bring a party when they come to town. They travel the Southeast with their over-the-top party vibes and now they are bringing their energy to downtown Macon. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Friday at Grants Lounge
I got a chance to see the Dirty Doves at Bragg Jam this year. They were a fun group of guys and their music was entertaining. They find space for their style of playing at the intersection of psychedelic, blues and rock. Its a sound familiar enough to be able to say they are 60s influenced. 21 and up. 9 p.m. $5.
Uncle Earl and Friends

Uncle Earl Tribble knows how to play that good old rock n roll -- that good bluesy rock that you feel deep in your soul.

All ages. 8 p.m. Free.
