Lingo at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

Atlanta’s Lingo is always a crowd pleaser. They are not content to just be a Southern rock influenced jam band. They blend in elements of Latin and African percussion and rhythms, creating something familiar and new at the same time. More than anything else, this band is just plain fun. They offer a night of live music that appeals to the party-goer who just wants to have a good time as well as the seasoned music lover. 18 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Matt Pippin Duo at Billy’s Clubhouse

Sometimes you just need some good old country music, and Matt Pippin is just the man to give you what you need. Matt Pippin played guitar for Jason Aldean in the early days. Now, he’s performing his own songs with a country style that is distinctly rooted in the Georgia red clay. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.

Twang’s One-Year Anniversary at Twang Southern Tastes and Sounds

When Twang opened a year ago, it filled a gaping hole that was left in the Payne City community. Thankfully, Twang knew exactly what was needed! True to what they have been doing since they opened -- serving up great food and music -- they are celebrating their one-year anniversary with a low country boil and fish fry. There also will be music from Lewis & JP starting at noon and Josh Carson at 8:30 p.m. All ages. Free.

DJs Structure, B3 and Squirrelly at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

If you hang out at Roasted, you know and love Angie. She’s always serving up lunch, coffee and craft beers while nodding her head to whatever music may be playing. She is celebrating her birthday by bringing out three of Macon’s favorite electronic DJs. Structure has been an electronic staple in Macon since the very beginning, while B3 and Squirrelly have made names for themselves during the last few years. Expect a night of bass-heavy electronic grooves. 18 and up. 9 p.m. Free.

The Grapevine at Washington Park

Bragg Jam has taken over Macon’s favorite outdoor monthly music event, Second Sunday at Washington Park. Though everyone is getting ready for the big event at the end of the month, we have this great Second Sunday to get us primed for what is to come. Everyone loves the Grapevine band. We can’t get enough of their golden oldie selections and their enthusiastic playing. It’s fun for the whole family! Bring blankets and picnics, but no tents or grills. All ages. 6 p.m. Free.
