Friday at the Grand Opera House
More than a decade ago, Johnny Lang (who was a teenager at the time) blind-sided the music world with his major label debut, “Lie to Me.” Older and wiser, Lang brings his show to Macon as part of the support of his latest release “Fight for My Soul.” If ya’ dig blues and a good time, you don’t wanna miss this one. $35-$45. 8 p.m.
Baby Baby with the Bearcats
Saturday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
Baby Baby has spent the last few years establishing themselves as a band that likes to bring the party to the stage, and the Atlanta music scene quickly learned to stop posturing and simply embrace the fun. This is not their first time in Macon and we certainly hope it will not be their last. They’ll be playing some tunes from their new record, so bring some lunch money to buy their newest release. Macon boys the Bearcats (featuring members of Tash and the Boys) open the evening for a booty shaking rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza. $5. 10:30 p.m.
Fantasia with La’Porsha Renae
Saturday at the City Auditorium
The Grammy-winning artist (who also won “American Idol”) brings her signature sound to the historic City Auditorium for what will undoubtedly be a night to remember. She’s touring in support of her latest effort, “The Definition Of…” an album that People Magazine described as “full of the soulful R&B that shot her to fame. Channeling Tina Turner ... she is the definition of a star.” La’Porsha Renae opens. $35-$60. 8 p.m.
Baatin and Top Secret
Sunday at the Douglass Theatre
What could be smoother than jazz at the historic Douglass Theater? Absolutely nothing. The Douglass Jazz Society is hosting Baatin, a “multi-talented musician who plays the guitar, the keyboard and the saxophone.” He will be joined by Top Secret (the band). $10; free for members of the Douglass Jazz Society. 5 p.m.
Sunday at Fresh Produce Records
The triumphant return of Sunday Funday is a beautiful thing. This lineup will feature an eclectic blend of talent, ranging from DJ Shawty Slim, DJ B3, Trey Deuce, Midas Wright, saint jak and DJ Y-Fii. There’s also talk of debuting a new sound and light system, so be prepared for the level of krunkness to go to 11. $5. 9 p.m.
