Their shows at the Hummingbird are fun and always packed. This is a must-see First Friday event. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

This up-and-coming, Georgia-based, six-piece bluegrass band has been catching fire with each show they play. Under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Doors open at 7 p.m. $20 and up.
