Lamar Williams Jr.

FRIDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

Lamar Williams Jr. may be the son of an Allman Brothers Band bassist, but don’t expect the comparisons to go much farther than that relationship. The singer is making music his own way with a deeply soulful voice and an always-on-point backing band. 10 p.m. 18 and older. $5.

Thomas and Olivia Wynn

THURSDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

Thomas and Olivia Wynn are decidedly influenced by their father, Tom Wynn, the original drummer of Cowboy, one of Capricorn Studio’s legendary bands from the 1970s. His influence, as well as their faith and rearing in church, shape their songwriting and musical interests, and these deeply rooted principles certainly laid the foundation for their sound. Thomas’ spirit-moving vocals are uniquely supported by sister Olivia’s engaging and captivating voice and presence, which they’ll be showcasing for this stripped down set at the Hummingbird. 10 p.m. 18 and older. $5.

The LACS

FRIDAY AT THE COX CAPITOL THEATRE

Self-described as having a hick-hop Southern rock sound stronger than moonshine, the LACS (Loud Ass Crackers, if you’re keeping score) hail from the recesses of south Georgia. Their bringing their blue-collar influenced sound to the Cox Capitol Theatre in support of their new record, which is gaining momentum behind the song “Shindig,” their collaboration with Colt Ford. 8 p.m. $17 in advance; $20 day of show.

Big Neck Police

MONDAY AT FRESH PRODUCE RECORDS

Get down and dirty on a Monday night at Fresh Produce Records. New York’s Big Neck Police could be called a punk rock band, but their sound brings to mind anything from Pavement-like guitar melodicism to catastrophic, but controlled, noise rock. They’ll be playing tunes from their new record, “Sleight of Time.” 8 p.m. Free.

Saint Francis

SATURDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

After a long stint on the road with local favorites Moonshine Still, front man Scott Baston decided to part ways and take his musical ambitions elsewhere, forming the band Saint Francis to explore a “heightened sense of self and connection” with the new group. The band has since relocated to Athens, but makes a return to Macon on Saturday to support their new record, “Cassidy’s Sky,” which was partially recorded at Macon’s own Star Motel Studios. 10 p.m. 18 and older. $5.
