Q & A with Athens-Based Band Tent City

Tent City, a 5-piece band out of Athens, makes its third trip to Macon on Saturday, March 3. They play at The Hummingbird Stage and Taproom starting at 9 p.m. (Never been there? That's in Downtown Macon on Cherry St.)

They say they're a funny group of guys and they're heavily percussion-based and find some of their inspiration from the Allman Brothers. Get this: they have two drum sets and two drummers. Makes you want to read on, right?
