FRIDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM
East Nashville's *repeat repeat earned the description of "Dick Dale's snot-nose grandkids" by blasting out its own brand of surf rock candy flower pop that demands your attention. For serious, if you haven't checked out its track "12345678," go do it now and tell me ya don't want to drive to the nearest body of water with a playlist of Ventures and Phil Spector deep cuts blaring through the wind of a moonlit night. The band is joined by Atlanta's Kate and Corey, a pair of soulful singer/songwriters who make music that claims to connect people to both their music and to each other. 10:30 p.m. $5.

SATURDAY AT THE COX CAPITOL THEATRE
The Indigo Girls' career now spans more than thirty-five years and fifteen albums and includes multiple Grammy wins and nominations. The duo of Amy Ray and Emily Sailers, who met in elementary school, are undeniably Georgia legends, and their massively popular, folk-tinged dueting style has taken the group across the globe to perform instantly recognizable hits like "Closer to Fine," "Galileo" and "Shame on You." However, the group isn't content to sit back on their greatest hits. Their latest album, "One Lost Day," is unmistakably an Indigo Girls record but continues to push boundaries for the band. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show starts at 8 p.m. $32-$38.
SATURDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM
Copious Jones hails from Atlanta and plays original music they describe as "something akin to Dave Matthews meets Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead." Pleased to meet y'all. Since their formation, the band has been hitting the road hard, sharing bills with likeminded acts and even hopping on some festivals like New York's Mountain Jam and Florida's Bear Creek that saw them sharing space with folks like the Allman Brothers Band, Bob Weir, Chris Robinson and Umphrey's McGee. Those se, Copious Jones em like nice folks to meet as well.
