Cherry Blossom Music Festival Edition
Passes to all eight venues are $20. Single-venue passes are $10.
Bootz & Katz at 9:30 p.m. at the Wall (566 Cherry St.)
There was a time when the lines of music genres were clearly drawn. Jazz was jazz. Country was country. Now a days, its not so simple to explain. Macons very own Bootz & Katz consider themselves and electronica band. So that means the use of live instruments to create the sounds usually associated with electronic music. They also pull influences from hip-hop, classic rock, jazz, punk and of course, electronica.
Lingo at 10 p.m. at Fowl Play (580 Cherry St).
Every time Lingo stops here in Macon they make new fans. This bands funky jam style of playing always gets the crowd whipped up and in a dancing mood. Their musical reach has been expanding across the Southeast as they have been playing shows and music festivals almost non-stop during the past few years.
Old Southern Moonshine Revival at 11 p.m. at the Crazy Bull (473 Second St.)
The name Old Southern Moonshine Revival says it all. If you love new country music, this is the band to see during the Cherry Blossom Music Festival. Their second album, Between Jesus and Me, found its way onto the iTunes Top 100 Country Albums chart. These passionate country rockers are ready to make their Macon debut.
Futurebirds at 11:30 p.m. the Cox Capitol Theatre (382 Second St.)
The Athens-based band Futurebirds have been going strong since they first came together in 2008, winning over a new generation of Southern rock fans with their high-energy blend of indie rock, Americana and country rock. They have become known for their four-part harmony, pedal steel, banjo and mandolin.
Drivin n Cryin at 11:30 p.m. at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom (430 Cherry St.)
In these parts, Kevn Kinney and Drivin N Cryin need no introduction. This band, known for their Southern hits Straight To Hell and Honeysuckle Blue, can rock out with the best of them. This Georgia band has been a Southern favorite since their first release in 1986, and there are no bigger fans than right here in Middle Georgia.
