Marshall Tucker Band, Trongone Band, Bio Ritmo, Late Night Pick: ZZ Ward

Doing a short blog to catch you up on tonight in case you want to go out and party since you don't have work tomorrow. The rest of the weekend blog will come out tonight or tomorrow tonight.

Veteran 70's Southern rockers, Marshall Tucker Band, will be at Innsbrook tonight. Gate time is 5 PM, the show starts at 6 PM with Trongone Band, and MTB comes on at 7:30. In the event of rain, you are allowed to bring small, collapsible umbrellas in, but really, be kind to those behind you and just wear a rain jacket or poncho so everyone can see. It's just a little rain. Tickets are $18 for GA lawn and $30/$25 for Gold Circle. MTB released a new live album this year which was recorded at the South Carolina Music Hall of Fame concert in '95 and features four of the original members of the band (only original singer Doug Gray is still in the band now) along with Charlie Daniels and Jaimoe & Butch Trucks from Allman Brothers Band. Here's the original band performing "Can't You See" in 1977:

Trongone Band will head over to Tobacco Company after their opening slot at Innsbrook for their own show which will start at 9. So if you like what you see of them at Innsbrook, head on over there later. It's free to get in.

Salsa band Bio Ritmo will be at Emilio's tonight (also next week on the 10th) starting at 10 PM. It's $7 to get in. You can wish the band luck as they'll be leaving soon to play in Spain, France and Poland starting on July 19. Here's the band playing "La Muralla":

Tonight's Late Night Pick is blues/neo-soul singer ZZ Ward on Jimmy Kimmel Live at 11:35 PM on ABC.

That's is for now. More on the rest of the weekend tonight or tomorrow.
