Bombadil at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

This three-piece band from Durham, North Carolina, writes fun, quirky lyrics. This inventive song writing is then laid over a vast array of styles -- everything from boogie woogie to country, ’40s style jazz, rock ’n’ roll and just about everything else. They harmonize like bluegrass performers and then sometimes they rap. It’s inventive, classy, well done and fun. 18 and up. 9 p.m. Free.

All The Locals at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

All The Locals aren’t new to Macon. They have been stopping by and playing for about a year now. However, this band had a breakout performance at this year’s Cherry Blossom Music Festival, where they got a chance to play in front of a bigger crowd than usual. Now, they return to the Hummingbird for a night of their youthfully exuberant, deeply soulful sounds. They seem to stand on a style that draws from a triangulation of soul, jazz and rock ’n’ roll. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Outdoor Karaoke Party at Third Street Park

The Macon chapter of the League of Creative Interventionists invites us to come out and just have fun! They are hosting a free outdoor karaoke party in downtown Macon at Third Street Park. This is a great way to loosen up, meet new people and enjoy just how beautiful our city is. Come out to cheer on and laugh with your favorite singers. Family friendly. 6:30-8:30 p.m. Free.

Lucinda Williams at Cox Capitol Theatre

This show is a homecoming of sorts for Lucinda Williams, since she spent part of her childhood here in Macon while her father, the poet Miller Williams, taught at Wesleyan College. It’s easy to understand why Lucinda Williams’ song lyrics are as well written and poetic as they are once you realize her father is a well respected Southern poet. Under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Doors open at 7 p.m. $48.

Georgia Flood Band at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

When some high school friends from Henry County decided to get together and form a band after graduation, the Georgia Flood Band was born. Their style seems to have been dipped in the bluesy sound of ’60s style rock ’n’ roll, naming Cream and Blind Faith as two of their biggest influences. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
