Bootz & Katz at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

Live electronica is a movement that is gaining momentum in this area. That means live instruments mixed with electronic production and DJs.

They are joined by Andy Bruh and Lucidea. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.

Vineyard Band and Stokes & the Guilty Bystanders at Grant’s Lounge

When it comes to local country bands, the Vineyard Band is probably the most underrated of the bands in the area. Their classic/alt-country sound is fun and danceable and filled with the warm sounds of peddle steel. They will be joined be up and coming bands Stokes & the Guilty Bystanders as well as others. 21 and up. 8:30 p.m. $5.

The World Famous Walnut Street Dixie, Racing & Marching Society Jazz Band at the Library Ballroom

Dixieland jazz is just plain fun. You have no idea how much you like it until you hear it and before you know it, you are caught up in it. The Jazz Association of Macon is teaming up with State Bank & Trust and Widner and Associates to help add some jazz-fueled fun to this First Friday. 8 p.m. $5.

K.Camp and A1 the Supergroup at Club Status

It’s nice to see the First Friday excitement spreading outside of downtown. K.Camp’s song “Money Baby” caught fire throughout Atlanta and even got some national attention. All eyes have been on him, thinking that he could be the next big name to come out of Atlanta as his style has appealed to a wide range of tastes. He’ll be joined by A1 the Supergroup. 9 p.m. $20 in advance (available and Habersham Records); $25 at the door. Call 404-227-0464 for more information.
