Radio Birds at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

When members of a band each have such different tastes in music as bluegrass, metal and Simon and Garfunkel, you come up with Atlanta’s Radio Birds. Their lo-fi rock ’n’ roll aesthetic has put all of their various influences to good use. 18 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Session Road at Fish N’ Pig

Not only does Fish N’ Pig serve up some of the best barbecue and seafood in the area, they have a beautiful deck on Lake Tobesofkee where you can kick back and enjoy some great tunes. This Friday, you can order a cold drink and then enjoy the country music stylings of Session Road. All ages. 7 p.m. Free.

Bruce Wonder and Shawty Slim at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

DJs in Macon tend to get pigeon-holed and end up playing the typical club music every time they play. To play something a little different, DJs Bruce Wonder and Shawty Slim began doing a monthly day party called the “Over-Do.” They reach deep in their music collections for this “anything goes” session. For this session, they also have invited along special guest DJs Delfonik and your very own Roger Riddle. All ages. 3 p.m. Free.

Those Cats at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

It’s not too often we see a band from Statesboro playing in Middle Georgia. For the band to be a funk and soul band complete with a horn section? Well, that’s very special, indeed. This big six-piece band is very impressive, boasting jazzy heartfelt vocals, an organ and beautiful horn solos. This will be one of the better shows you will see this weekend. 18 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
