-Country’s tightest-pant-wearing superstar, Randy Travis will be working the crowd into a frenzy at the Cobb Energy Centre as part of his “Trip Down Memory Lane” tour. Greg Bates opens the show.

-Cocktails, Flowers, and Steve Earle, OH MY! As part of their Concerts in the Garden series, check out Steve Earle and the Dukes (and Duchesses) and Allison Moorer tonight at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

-If you are feeling sort of retro tonight, hop over to Smith’s Olde Bar to jam out with the Please PleaseRock Me, brought to you by your good pals in Yacht Rock and YOU.

-The main rock star of tonight just might be the young Harry Potter. The final Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows premiers tonight, and I do believe there will a flock of muggles standing in line, anxiously awaiting the final show.
