First Friday Bluegrass Celebration at the Library Ballroom
To say that Macon has a love affair with bluegrass music would be an understatement. Maconites turn out for a bluegrass event! This First Friday, the Library Ballroom brings two great bands to help us celebrate our favorite day of the month: the Recycled Grass band from Lizella, and the Dark Hollow House Band from right here in Macon featuring Dustin Murdock. 5:30 p.m. $5.
The Electric Sons at Grants Lounge
The Blue Indian keeps Macon informed with what is happening in the indie-rock scene.

Saturday March 8
Tommy Talton and the Mike Veal Band at the Douglass Theatre
Tommy Talton is known and loved by fans of the Capricorn Records catalog. He was a key member of the band Cowboy and played with just about all of the big names from the label. Now, Tommy Talton is touring with his own band and released his most recent album on Hittin The Note Records in 2012. Hell be joined by the Mike Veal Band from Atlanta. If you made it to the Douglass for the Jack Hall benefit concert, then you surely remember the Mike Veal Bands performance. All ages. 8 p.m. $20 in advance.
Outshyne at the Crazy Bull
Its been awhile since Ive heard of Outshyne playing in Middle Georgia, which is a shame because this area could be hot spot for them. I can imagine lots of young country music fans would love their style of music. They released their second album, Starting Over, last year and it debuted at No. 11 on the iTunes charts. 21 and up. 6 p.m. $5.
