Kevn Kinney, Chuck Mead and Angie Aparo at Cox Capitol Theatre

Macon is a town that loves singer-songwriters, and the trio of Kevn Kinney of Drivn N Cryin, Chuck Mead and Angie Aparo is as good of a selection of Southern singer-songwriters as it gets. All three are very adept in their styles and yet different enough from each other to provide variety for a well rounded night of entertainment. Doors open at 7 p.m. $18.

Quincy Mumford & the Reason Why at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

All the way from New Jersey, Quincy Mumford & the Reason Why bring their blend of ’70s rock, funk and soul to one of downtown Macon’s favorite places to hear live music. Quincy Mumford is still riding the wave of his fifth full-length release, “It’s Only Change,” which was recorded in Nashville, Tenn. The album is truly a work of fusion, combining all of Mumford’s influences in one sonic package. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Foe Pound DJs@ Club Element

Foe Pound is a newly formed collective of some of Macon’s most recognizable electronic DJs. You will hear drum and bass, glitch hop, breaks, drumstep and others, selected by DJs T. Mouse, Rhett Squirrelly, Wet Paint and more. 18 and up. 10 p.m. $5 for age 21 and older; $7 for ages 18-20. Military and women free before 11 p.m.

Gareth Asher & the Earthlings at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

I love the name of this band. Atlanta based Gareth Asher & the Earthlings have been combining country, folk and rock since 2011. This five-piece ensemble utilizes the sounds of guitar, bass, keys, steel and drums to create their style. When speaking about influences, you will most likely hear Gareth Asher say Jackson Browne is at the top of his list. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Don Williams at the Grand Opera House

The names that have been stopping by Macon to perform has just been amazing as of late, and Don Williams ranks as a “must see.” Williams is one of country music’s greatest songwriters, recording several No. 1 hits. His songs have influenced singers in many other styles of music, and have been covered by the likes of Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Lambchop and many others. All ages. Doors open at 7 p.m. $45-$55.
