Gig Guide

FRIDAY AT GRANT’S LOUNGE

Bruised Grass plays a mixture of Southern rock, soul, funk, blues and psychedelia. Lead by singer Matthew “Simple Man” Simpson of Moultrie, Bruised Grass has been touring and playing since 2006. Bruised Grass comes to Macon to perform and to help raise awareness of Leonard Peltier’s legal case in Florida. 21 and up. Doors open at 7 p.m. $10.

FRIDAY AT ROASTED CAFE AND LOUNGE

The construction on Second Street means that we will see a more beautiful downtown Macon once it’s complete. However, for right now, it has to be tough for the businesses on Second Street. To see Back City Woods -- arguably Macon’s favorite local band -- playing Roasted during a time when the extra business and attention is much needed, is like a nod of appreciation for Roasted supporting local music since it first opened. Come enjoy some rocking bluegrass and support a local business downtown. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.

FRIDAY AT THE CRAZY BULL

The Crazy Bull is another business affected by the Second Street construction in downtown Macon. This weekend, they will be hosting country vocalist and guitarist Phil Vaught. Born and raised in Kentucky, Vaught is now based in Nashville, and plays about 200 shows a year all across the country. 21 and up. Doors open at 7 p.m. $5.

TUESDAY AT THE MUSEUM OF AVIATION (WARNER ROBINS)

THURSDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

Ashville, North Carolina’s the Get Right Band was named by Relix Magazine as one of their “On The Verge” picks.
