There are a couple of cool events going on this weekend that are not on the typical weekly roster. For one, the City Club above Old Havana is hosting an Open Mic Comedy Night featuring local cut-ups. If you have a short routine up your sleeve get in contact with James Schroeder on Facebook. It’s free to get in but donations never hurt.
It’s also the season finale for the Rome Rollergirls. I’ve been meaning to catch them all season long but always have conflicting schedules. From what I’ve heard, these roller derby bouts are super fun and something fresh for Rome. I’ve also heard that this is not a sissy sport. They’ll be taking on the River Region Rollergirls.
When it comes to music, then have no fear. There are top shelf acts in the respected venues in town including Thunderbolt Patterson, the dynamic duo of song and sound. The blues drenched rockabilly ramblings of the John Lee Hookers are on tap, as well as the cranked up country and Southern rock of Runnin’ Wild. Badluck Road is an alternative and modern rock band from Cedartown. They’ll be getting down this weekend as well as the funky fresh keyboard driven stylings of My Ninja.
