Weekend Mashup: May 16-18

May 16th, 2014 in Chattnow Music

FRIDAY

Roadkill Ghost Choir starts the weekend off at Nightfall with indie folk. Openers are Paul Hadfield & The McCoys.

Penny and Sparrow draws inspiration from Bon Iver and Mumford and Sons (Camp House-appropriate), and they'll perform with Grace & Tony, who dub themselves "punkgrass."

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Back in Black plays the greatest hits of AC/DC at Rhythm & Brews.

The Southern rock, blues and country fusion group Remembering January will make the trek from Chatsworth, Georgia to play Bud's Sports Bar Friday and Saturday nights.

The 6-piece Kopecky Family Band plays at JJ's (they could be a cousin of Foxygen) with "folk/gospel/noise/rock" Nashville group James Wallace & The Naked Light. It's easy listening.

SATURDAY

Saturday, go for some real, raw bluegrass at the Harrison Ruritan Club's Bluegrass Jamboree. Barbecue is part of the fun.

If you're planning on seeing Conor Oberst at Track 29, you've probably been planning that for months - we'll leave you to that.

To confuse you, JJ's hosts another family-titled act, Megan Jean and the KFB - which stands for the Klay Family Band. They play a "demented blend" of Americana, punk and dance - or "a metal band, if it was 1927." Old-fashioned family values.

Charming local rapper Eazy Steve is hosting Neighburrrhood Nights at the Barking Legs with DJs spinning, dancing, and a wee cover of just $5, and beer. Score.

Looking for a simple country tune? Let Duane Cliatt from Nashville play you a few at T-Bone's.

Oh, and not music related, Another Story Live will host Another Story Showcase at The Camp House Saturday, spinning yarns, Southside-style.
