The Black Lips at the Cox Capitol Theatre
The Black Lips have gained a reputation as one of Georgias wildest rock bands. Their onstage antics have become legendary and I wouldnt feel comfortable telling any of those stories in the family-friendly Out & About. However, I will say that if you love a wild, high energy, rock n roll show, then you dont want to miss this one. They will be joined by Curtis Harding and Shehehe. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. 7 p.m. $18.

The Ride at the Crazy Bull
Jacksonvilles the Ride has been entertaining crowds across the South with their classic rock style. Youll hear covers from Aerosmith, Journey, Kansas, Styx, Boston and more. They are sure to mix in some of their original numbers as well. 21 and older. 10 p.m. $5.
Of Montreal at the Cox Capitol Theatre
Of Montreal is part of the Elephant 6 collective of musicians out of Athens. Their wildly creative and artistic shows have led to tours around the world and have left people dancing to their bouncy sounds in every corner of the earth. Of Montreals front man Kevin Barnes has been re-imagining the band and the release of their newest album has presented a more stripped down version of the style they had been known for in the past. They will be joined by Wild Moccasins. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. 7 p.m. $15 in advance; $18 day of show

Josh Graff is as talented of a guitar player as youre going to hear in this area. The combination of him and his close friend Travis Denning becomes an incredible experience for the listener. His love of the blues is put on display for all to experience and that experience is one you cant help but get swept up in. 21 and older. 10 p.m. $5.
