The hip-hop-bluegrass hybrid is best known for their theme song to FX’s “Justified” (“Long Hard Times to Come”). But the collection of musicians from New York has some added visibility thanks to a song from member Dan Whitener, “We Are Gonna Be Okay,” which is featured in Spike Lee’s buzzy new “BlacKkKlansman” movie. The group, which is making its Atlanta concert debut, will unveil a live album in early 2019.
8 p.m. Aug. 21. $12. City Winery Atlanta, 650 North Ave., Ponce City Market, Atlanta. 404-946-3791, citywinery.com/atlanta/.
Jeff Beck, Paul Rodgers and Ann Wilson of Heart
As Ann Wilson astutely noted in a recent interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there’s “not a clinker in the bunch” with this heady lineup of rockers. Wilson, who releases “Immortal” next month, an album of covers in tribute to deceased artists such as David Bowie, George Michael and Amy Winehouse, will take the stage after opener Deborah Bonham (sister of Led Zeppelin powerhouse drummer John). Beck and Rodgers have alternated who closes the show—but is there a downside to either?
With Deborah Bonham. 7 p.m. Aug. 22. $35-$150. Non-table setup (coolers and carry-ins are not allowed). State Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park, 4469 Stella Drive NW, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.
