The Crescent Moon Dogs

Black Cadillacs

SATURDAY ON TOP OF THE MULBERRY STREET PARKING DECK

Corner Concerts is the brilliant idea of Andrew Eck. Eck decided to put on live shows in different places that would draw attention to what Macon has to offer.

Enjoy the ’60s style rock ’n’ roll of the Black Cadilliacs along with special guests Radiolucent and Tash and the Boys. 18 and up. 7:30 p.m. $15.
