“The Wrecking Crew”

TUESDAY AT THE DOUGLASS THEATRE

If the term “Wrecking Crew” elicits a jarring image of a building being demolished or a monster truck rally, you may have the wrong idea. “The Wrecking Crew” is a documentary film produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of legendary late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco. The Wrecking Crew were a group of LA-based studio musicians who played on hits for the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, Jan & Dean, the Monkees, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Mamas & Papas, Tijuana Brass, Ricky Nelson, Johnny Rivers and many more. Their body of work is tremendous, and their fascinating story is depicted in detail in this movie. 7:30 p.m. $6. Free for all Macon Film Festival and Bragg Jam pass holders.

Jalon Blanc presents Jammatron

TUESDAY AT GRANT’S LOUNGE

Jammatron started in October 2013 with the idea of hosting an evening of rap and hip-hop music like nothing else in Macon. The format of Jammatron is simple and pretty great: three artists perform 15-minute sets while interspersing two DJs (one steady DJ and one rotating) to fill in the gaps throughout the night. The goal of this setup is two fold: spotlight local artists and allow DJs to showcase their talents (and favorite tunes) in a non-competitive atmosphere that fosters and inspires creativity and collaboration. This particular installment of Jammatron also supports a local cause -- proceeds will be used to buy school supplies for children in need. 10 p.m. $5 donation.
