As the inaugural concert for the Roswell Presents: True Americana series, The Travelin' McCourys' fast-paced plucking skills tickle eardrums with traditional bluegrass sounds and innovative tone tinkering. Music mavens can cease pondering what whale songs would sound like with a proper complement of backup singers, turning to the authentic sounds of a quartet comprised of mandolin strummer Ronnie McCoury, banjoist Rob McCoury, fiddle player Jason Carter, and upright-bass spinner Alan Bartram. Twenty years on the road have led to celebrated live collaborations with the Allman Brothers, Phish, and Warren Haynes, as well as many acts in and out of the bluegrass community. The group plucks their way through acoustic and sometimes electric performances, treating listeners to inventive experiments that may result in discoveries of new instruments more exciting than the keytar or acoustic stapler. Special guests The Packway Handle Band strum energetic, alternative bluegrass as well.

Flush with cash during the Roaring Twenties, Atlanta's Shriners set out to build a magnificent monument for their headquarters, dubbed the Yaarab Temple Shrine Mosque. The structure was to feature grandiose architectural touches such as towering minarets and onion domes. When a teetering economy threatened construction, the Shriners sold the building to film mogul William Fox, who finished the space as a movie palace with virtually no changes to its extravagant design. As splendid as the exterior was, audiences were unprepared for the interior. After seeing it for the first time, one Atlanta Journal reporter breathlessly remarked on the "picturesque and almost disturbing grandeur" on display.
Crafted to resemble the courtyard of a Moorish castle, the main hall's decorations begin in the back with a faux canopy of plaster and steel stretching over the rear balcony. Stone parapets wrap around the sides, culminating in a towering proscenium arch illuminated by hanging lanterns and overhung with persian rugs. Above, a blue ceiling sparkles with hundreds of recessed light bulbs, which refract through three-inch crystals. Projected clouds drift across this simulated starry night and rain on anyone who texts during a show.
The final jewel in the theater's gilded crown is the The Mighty Mo Organ. The second-largest theater organ in the world, the Mighty Mo was custom-built in 1929 for the princely sum of $42,000 to accompany any movie or live production. The instrument’s richly textured sounds erupt from 3,622 pipes of varying length, with the smallest no larger than a pen and the largest spanning five feet in diameter. Adding to the Mighty Mo's sonic tapestry is an internal glockenspiel, marimba, and xylophone, plus a system by which the stage's grand piano can be played remotely. The Mighty Mo also mimics thunder, steamboat whistles, saxophones, and its parents' voices when they're not around.
