Four things to do around Atlanta this weekend, Jan. 16 & 17:

Feel the thrill of competition at Battle of the Bands at The Masquerade this Sunday. It kicks off at 4 p.m. with O.D.D. $10 before midnight, $12 after midnight. [Or you can see Atlanta Symphony Orchestra perform their Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute at Atlanta Symphony Hall.]

For only $10 you can enjoy jazz, drinks and art at the High Museum of Art on Friday night featuring Georgia native and saxophonist, Mike Walton. Seating is limited and doors open at 6 p.m. [Find out where you can volunteer this weekend in honor of MLK Day.]

Treehouse Pub celebrates 30 successful years in Buckhead on Saturday from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. with an open house party that will offer complimentary bites and drink specials. The event is free to the public and children are welcome. [Go on a hunt for the best waffles in Atlanta by starting at these spots.]

It might be January, but Snow Mountain is still serving up a slippery good time. See who can build the better snowman after hours of tubing fun. [Teach your little ones about the significance of MLK Day at The Center for Civil and Human Rights.]
