The lowdown on downtown Rome entertainment
You’ve got to love it when Halloween falls on a weekend. When it falls in the middle of the week, folks want to have parties the week before and after, and it all gets watered down and troublesome. Sometimes you need multiple costumes. Not this year.
Berry graduate and ex-Old Havana cigar slinger Jess Hinshaw will have a reception for his latest works entitled Let’s Exchange the Experience at Berry College’s Moon Gallery.
Russell McClanahan & the mOOn Crew play old time string music with amodern twist for the dinner crowd at Harvest Moon.
Scotty Cram, an acoustic songsmith has been burning up the Southeastern highways of late. Thursday, he’ll be performing at 333 on Broad.
Much ado in the spooky and fun realms of downtown Rome on Friday and Saturday. 333 on Broad and the Victorian Tea Room will host dinner theaters. It’s a great opportunity to have some fun while enjoying an excellent meal from two of Rome’s finest eateries.
McCrobie’s kicks off the weekend with the Hooligan’s Eve Party, featuring local high energy punk rock band Unseen Stimuli as well as The Bastard Suns out of Atlanta.
The 400 Block Bar will host the psychedelic funk and jazz based jams of Red Eye Jedi. These guys have finely tuned their material while allowing plenty of space for experimentation.
Local songwriter favorite Cory Tucker will be at 333 on Broad for a night of acoustic music.
The Jake Leggs, a Southern rock and country bans, will be pleasing the crowd at the Moon Roof Bar.
The Nest will host a triple feature of talented musicians including Scott Crowley, Mallie Powell, and Nick Almand.
One of my favorite songwriters and storytellers, Gary Greene, will perform at the Harris Arts Center in Calhoun.
This is officially Halloween night.
Local favorites Kneckdown will take the stage at 333 on Broad. Through lots of hard work and consistency, these guys have become staples in the local music scene.
Black Friday is another band that has earned their keep around Rome, performing a mix of Southern rock and metal that is no doubt a forum for loud rock ‘n’ roll wit a chrome appeal. They’ll be blasting out songs from the McCrobie’s stage.
Cloventine will perform at the Moon Roof Bar. These guys always put on an energetic show and have a good time with a pop rock feel and a post punk vibe, while dabbling in classic rock greats.
Uncle Ronnie is one of Cedartown’s finest, blending classic rock and alternative. They’ll be putting on a Halloween party at the Peach Palace.
