Atlanta Concerts this week: Grace Potter, Future and Lil Baby

FRIDAY

Steep Canyon Rangers

The Grammy-winning bluegrass outfit known for their collaborations with actor-comedian Steve Martin will bring their fusion of string-based music to the stage. The Asheville, North Carolina, sextet paired with Boyz II Men and the Asheville Symphony last year for “Be Still Moses,” and now the band and symphony will release an album of the same name on March 6.

With Georgia Mountain Stringband. 8 p.m. Jan. 17. $19-$24. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. NE, Atlanta. 1-877-987-6487, ticketfly.com.

SATURDAY

Grace Potter

Last week, the singer-songwriter kicked off a 45-date tour in support of “Daylight,” her first new album in four years. Potter is joined onstage by longtime lead guitarist Benny Yurco, as well as multi-instrumentalist Eliza Hardy Jones, bassist Kurtis Keber and drummer Jordan West.

8 p.m. Jan. 18. $38.50-$63.50. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, livenation.com.

MxPx

For nearly 30 years, the Washington state-based group have blasted their punk sensibilities to revolving generations. Though they shed the Christian overtones several years ago, the band’s musical muscularity is intact. In 2018, MxPx released a self-titled, crowdfunded album.

With Five Iron Frenzy. 8 p.m. Jan. 18. $32-$37.50. Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Road, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.

SUNDAY

Future and Lil Baby

They’ve collaborated on record (“On the Mud” last summer), have the shared history of a hometown, and now the Atlanta rappers will share a bill as well. Dubbed “No Place Like Home,” the show will feature hip-hop superstar Future and the burgeoning Lil Baby, who is readying the release of his album, “My Turn.”

8 p.m. Jan. 19. $165.50. Coca-Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave. SE, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, livenation.com.
