Steve Earle and the Dukes
Friday at Cox Capitol Theatre
When most people think about Steve Earle, they instantly flash back to Copperhead Road and Guitar Town, but Earle has done so much more. Earle overcame drug addiction to go on to write songs for Travis Tritt, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill and many more. Now, he tours and records regularly and even discovers new artists, like his openers, the Mastersons. 7 p.m. $38.50.
England in 1819 and One Horse Parade
Friday at Roasted Cafe and Lounge
Brothers Andrew and Dan Callaway hail from Baton Rouge, La. They combine French horns and synths into a strange mix that brings the sounds of years gone by crashing into todays production. Their style is equally satisfying for the deep listener as well as the dancer. They will be joined by local groups One Horse Parade and African Americana. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
Saturday at the City Auditorium
Steve Moretti is excited and he has every right to be. He has teamed up with his friend Matt Catingub to introduce Macon to orchestra music in a way that it has never been heard before in this town. They created the Macon Pops Orchestra, bringing some of the countrys best symphony players together for the performances. They sprinkle in special guests -- local and nationally known -- to create a night that is fun and engaging and sure to have everyone in the room on their feet! 7:30 p.m. Balcony seats are $10.
Sanction the Radio
Saturday at the 567 Center for Renewal
The spirit of youth always has created music that is full of energy, emotion and a rebelliousness determined to see things change. Sanction the Radio brings all of that to the table in a nice pop-punk package. Young people can relate to the lyrics, as well as the dancing. They are joined by Burns Like Fire and For the Moment. All ages. 7:30 p.m. $5.
Tuesday at the Grand Opera House
Macon has suddenly come alive with quality classical music. Detroits Sphinx Virtuosi is a collective of young Latino and black string musicians. This show will be fun and inspiring for music lovers of all ages and would be a great family outing, as children ages 5 and older are welcome. 7:30 p.m. Free.
