Friday at Fresh Produce Records
Step into the darker side of experimental music with this show at Fresh Produce Records. This strange and twisted music may sometimes make you uncomfortable, but it’s definitely different from what you are used to hearing in Macon. Dendera Bloodbath, from Atlanta, mixes psychedelic elements with goth and post punk. Mr. Blank, from Athens, is part carnival sideshow and part experimental punk. They will be joined by local groups the Steak Place, Dok V and Scott 6. All ages. 9 p.m. Free.
Friday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
It’s hard to believe Gringo Grande has been playing music in and around Macon for four years. One of their earliest shows was opening for the Marshall Tucker Band. Since then, they have recorded an album and played numerous shows around Macon. They quickly became a favorite right here in their hometown. Their Southern rock/classic rock style fits the atmosphere of Macon perfectly. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Saturday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
I have heard a lot of self-made genres while listening to small bands. However, “joyfunk” is probably my favorite. It just makes you smile when you say it. This Tuscaloosa, Alabama, based band blends progressive rock, folk, funk and jam into an uptempo, happy, danceable sound that they describe as joyfunk. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
Saturday at Fish N’ Pig
The Double Barrel Band from Cochran first started playing in 1978. More than 30 years later they are back together and playing all your favorite classic rock and Elvis covers. Couple that great sound with the great food and drinks at Fish N’ Pig and you have a winning evening! Be sure to get there early to find a good spot. The shows at Fish N’ Pig fill up quickly! All ages. 7 p.m. Free.
Thursday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
It’s not often that you get to see a band the caliber of Copious Jones for free. However, we got lucky this time as they will stop by the Hummingbird on Thursday night. This Atlanta band blends a unique mixture of rock and jazz that has made them favorites of festivals such as Bear Creek and the Mountain Jam. Now, four years into their musical travels, they have begun receiving accolades from the likes of Chuck Leavell, Rob Barraco and others. 21 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
