Macon’s Cox Capitol Theatre is offering up a diverse schedule of music through the month of November, including shows from Sturgill Simpson, The Lone Bellow, and Thomas Wynn & the Believers. Other acts include Tauk, Mingo Fishtrap, The Fritz, Foreign Fields, Kristen Diable, Doc Holliday, and the 20th anniversary of Acoustic Workshop. A full schedule and tickets are available here. We’ve highlighted below a few of the shows we’re looking forward to.
11/1 – Thomas Wynn & the Believers w/ Widow Pills & Dalmatian
Thomas Wynn & the Believers were THE act to see at Bragg Jam 2014. Their raucious set at Historic Grant’s Lounge hit close to home for the audience who packed in to get a glimpse of Macon music history and it was the talk of the town in the days after the event. They’ve since returned for Weaver’s Weekend and headlining sets at the Hummingbird and The Crazy Bull, but on Saturday, November 1st they’ll be bringing their Southern roar to the Theatre.
They’ll be joined by newly-formed local act, Widow Pills, and Dalmatian, our Band of the Month for September. Get there early, you’re not going to want to miss either of these bands. Tickets for the show are available here.
11/8 – Sturgill Simpson w/ Cris Jacobs
Sturgill Simpson has had a terrificly succesful year in the wake of his acclaimed album Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. Fans and critics alike have referred to him as the “savior of country music” and the album and stunning live show have propelled him to countless sold-out headlining shows and support slots for Zac Brown, Jason Isbell and many more. Singer-songwriter Cris Jacobs opens the show, as well as most of the dates on the upcoming tour. Unfortunately for those of you who don’t have tickets, this show is sold-out. It should be one for the history books in Macon.
11/12 – The Lone Bellow w/ Foreign Fields & Kristen Diable
Country-folk outfit The Lone Bellow gained national attention with their 2013 self titled album, one that earned them acclaim from countless publications, including Rolling Stone, who wrote that the band “shape folk, gospel, and blues influences into straight-ahead roots rock somewhere between The Lumineers and Lady Antebellum.” They’re gearing up to release their next album in 2015, titled Then Came the Morning, with Aaron Dessner of The National at the helm of production.
