Having toured with Dinosaur Jr. and Meat Puppets in recent years, Dead Confederate returns to reclaim its native soil by planting its flag at the intimate downtown venue 40 Watt Club. In a dynamic live performance, the five-piece band will free cuts from their newest album, Sugar, from the confines of ear buds and bootlegged eight tracks. Beards can stoically bob along to the J Mascis–aided single "Giving It All Away" and the band's other forays into the dark corners of the rock-o-sphere, from freeform psychedelic wanderings to pulsing aural packets of distortion. Fellow performers Colour Revolt, whose debut album ranked among Paste's Best of 2008, and shoegazey Twin Tigers will ease ears into the deep end of the sonic pool with tonal palettes that range from jaunty to noisy. 40 Watt Club boasts two full bars for mid-show sipping or pouring libations to the gods of rock. Doors open at 9 p.m.

?Here?s to you, Andrew Volstead, NICE TRY!? The owners of The Volstead have good reason to raise a toast to this congressman, who famously passed the prohibition laws in the 1920s: he became the inspiration for everything their bar and restaurant wouldn?t be. To show their appreciation for libations, the team took great pains to restore the space to reflect the way it originally looked in 1893??the height of the American saloon era. But while the decorative archways, pressed tin ceiling, and William McKinley impersonators evoke the gilded age, the bar also holds a few modern twists. An ice rail runs along the wooded bar top to help keep cocktails and brews cold while draft beers are poured out at a 32 degree temperature and shots are shot back at a bone-chilling 5 degrees. Just under 100 guests can cozy into indoor tables and bar seating to enjoy weekly karaoke or trivia nights or linger on the outdoor patio as they gaze upon a handful of TVs and the large projection screen, which showcases Sunday football games and date-night movies.

Back in the kitchen, Chef David Perez leads a skilled culinary team as they handcraft 12 types of half-pound burgers, classic sandwiches, and 14 different appetizers to help create what part-owner Brian Holloway described to the Online Athens Banner-Herald as "a casual eating experience with an upscale feel." Black Angus beef patties are crowned with a variety of toppings, from jalape?o-pimento cheese and sliced hot dogs to fried eggs, while other hearty entrees include beer-battered fish and a 10-ounce rib-eye steak. Savory eats can also be consumed during the restaurant?s Sunday brunch, which serves up plates of shrimp and grits, ham and cheese omelets, and a pair of Elvis pancakes which arrived painted onto a velvet plate.

In spirit with the olden days of romantic turkey-leg gnawing by firelight, Olde Towne serves up an extensive menu of protein-packed fare, including grilled meats, seafood, burgers, sandwiches, hand-tossed pizzas, gourmet salads, soups, and more. Pique your palate with an order of Chesapeake crab fritters served with roasted red-pepper aioli and wasabi slaw ($9.99); or Cajun chicken nachos, topped with wood-fired chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeños, and a mix of cheeses ($7.99). Jumbo fresh fried chicken wings come doused in your choice of sauce (house specialties include lemon pepper, ranch, and lemon-yaki), served with celery and blue cheese or ranch dressing ($8.99 for 10). Treat your mouth to some wood-fired protein, such as prime rib served au jus with horseradish ($12.99 for 8 oz.), chicken Florentine stuffed with spinach and artichoke dip and topped with sun-dried tomatoes and a demi glaze ($13.99), or seared tuna served with veggies, wasabi slaw, and one additional side ($13.99). To satisfy the mini taste sensors on your fingertips, try a handheld creation such as the Black and Blue Burger (bacon and blue, jack, and cheddar cheeses, $8.50) or patty melt (Swiss and American cheeses and sautéed onions on rye, $8.99), and satisfy creative impulses with a build-your-own pizza topped with your choices from Olde Towne's bevy of meats, veggies, and cheeses (starting at $9.99 for 14").
