FRIDAY AT FRESH PRODUCE RECORDS
Portland’s Adrian Orange goes by many names in the world of music. Thanksgiving, AOK and A.O. all point back to the experimental folk sounds of Orange. Orange will be backed by R. Ariel, who also will perform some of her solo material. They will be joined by Atlanta’s Whispers of Night, and local psychedelic-folk artist Scotty Lingelbach. All ages. 9 p.m. Free.
FRIDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM
C2 and the Brothers Reed thinks the best way to describe them is to listen to their music. Once you listen to the opening track from their album “Hot Mess,” you get a clear sense of the contemporary Southern rock influence that runs from the golden years of Capricorn Records through groups such as the Drive-By Truckers, to the North Mississippi All-Stars, to Lexington, Kentucky’s C2 and the Brothers Reed. Each new generation places their own stamp on the Southern rock sound. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
FRIDAY AT THE CRAZY BULL
I never miss Travis Denning when he’s playing Bragg Jam. There’s something special about seeing local artists on stage at Macon’s biggest celebration of music. This year, Denning’s show was packed. You couldn’t get close to the stage and the crowd was singing along to Denning’s original songs. It’s a great feeling to see a local artist get that kind of love from the crowd. Denning’s country song writing is helped along by the fact that he and his partner Josh Graff are great guitar players. Their set list includes classic rock favorites, well known country and blues tunes, and Denning originals. It’s well worth your time to give them a listen. 21 and up. Doors open at 7 p.m. $5.
SATURDAY AT THE CRAZY BULL
Weaver’s Weekend bridges the gap for me between Bragg Jam and the fall festivities here in Macon. It’s summer’s last musical hurrah. This year, the Weaver’s crew brings a Middle Georgia favorite in the Dirty Guv’nahs. This Knoxville, Tennessee, band gets the crowd moving with their brand of rock ’n’ roll. They will be joined by Sonia Leigh and Gringo Grande. 18 and up. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. $20.
SATURDAY AT FISH N’ PIG
It’s all about having a good time when you’re sitting on the water at Fish N’ Pig listening to a band. Get there early, order something good to eat, then head outside and find good spot to kick back with a cold drink. Let A2Z play some good ole’ rock ’n’ roll music to make the night complete. Who knows, you might catch the feeling and get a notion to stand up and shake what your mama gave you. And if you do, that’s all right. It just means a good time was being had. All ages. 7 p.m. Free.
