Moby Dick at Wild Wing Cafe
The weekend is finally here. You head out with your friends and all you want to do is let loose. What you really need is a cold drink and some music you and your friends can sing along to. Well, this is the place for you! Moby Dick is a classic rock tribute band that loves the 80s rock bands just as much as you do. 10 p.m. Free.
Gimme Hendrix at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Ive seen several tribute bands stop by Macon to make us remember how much we love the music from our favorite artists, but this is the first time Ive ever seen a Hendrix tribute. Its a gutsy move. Hendrix fans are hard to please and the material that has to be covered aint easy. Athens-based Gimme Hendrix is lead by Eric Keaton and brings the songs of the Jimi Hendrix Experience back to life. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Mystery Road at Billys Clubhouse
Mystery Road is well known to GABBA members. They began their local stardom when they opened for country legend Marty Stuart at the 2011 Smoke on the Water Barbecue and Bluegrass Festival. Since then, they have been pleasing crowds wherever they play with their Southern rock, blues and soul sound that is always a winner in Middle Georgia. 21 and up. 9 p.m. Free.

Cranford Hollow at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Cranford Hollow changed their name from the very clever Cranford and Sons. When I first saw that name, all I wanted out of a live show from them was to hear the theme to Sanford and Son done in the style of Mumford & Sons. While I doubt that you will hear that collision of styles, what you will hear is an up-and-coming band that blends the musical styles of mountain music, country and pop. They recently released a single, Closer, which features Angie Aparo. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.

Zoogma at Cox Capitol Theatre
Macons electronic music scene is just as strong as any of the other musical styles that draw people out to hear live music. Zoogma mixes live instrumentation with the electronic sounds of samples and synths to create music that borrows from jazz, funk, hip-hop and more. During the past three years, they have played more than 300 shows and have recently released their second LP, Anthems 4 Androids. They will be joined by special guests Modern Measure. All ages welcome, but ages 15 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. 7 p.m. $10 in advance; $12 day of.
