It's time to find the great blues shows and venues all around Atlanta for this weekend!

Why? Because the blues make you happy and supporting live music is good for your soul. You get a great night out and do a good deed for hard-working musicians and the venues that support them at the same time! What a deal.

Friday, Houserocker Johnson and The Shadows are at Blind Willie;s. Hop Alley Brew Pub features Mike Snowden Live Cigar Music in Alpharetta. The Barry Richman Band is at Nik's Place in Marietta and Scott Glazer's Mojo Dojo is at Northside Tavern. The AJ Ghent Band appears at Smith's Olde Bar with The First Stone.

Saturday,the fabulous Beverly "Guitar" Watkiins at Blind Willie's. JP Soars comes to Darwin's for a CD release party for his new CD, "Full Moon Night in Memphis." I wrote about that here earlier this week. Read my review here. Dr. Dixon is at Fat Matt's and Soul Tribe is at Nik's Place. The Breeze Kings are at Northside Tavern.

Sunday, The Georgia Flood opens for Black Cadillacs at Park Tavern. Tony Bryant is at Fat Matt's and Uncle Sugar is at Northside Tavern. Locals has the Sunday Night Jam in Acworth.

That's what I know for this weekend. Have fun, support live music and keep on bluesin'!
