Saturday at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
About four years ago, Nomenclature sat atop of the Macon music scene ushering in an artsy and indie rock era that we still see vibrating through the city today. The band broke up amidst controversy and stories of in-fighting, leaving a void that many clubgoers felt was difficult to get over. Nomenclature front man Denny Hanson returns to the scene with new material and a new band line-up under the old familiar moniker. Can this incarnation of the band stand up to its strong past? Its up to the listeners to decide. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
