ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Whether you are a Southwest Georgia native, or you're a hurricane migrant, there is a lot going on Friday night for folks who are looking for something to do.

The Albany Museum of Art is hosting a musical performance with local artists. It's part of the Explore Georgia Songwriter series. 

The event is the fourth of the series that happens throughout the state. Friday night's performers included Cole Taylor, the Bo Henry Band, Travis Dennings, and many more. The concert will be right at the museum in its main gallery.

Organizers say it will allow the concert to have a more intimate venue.

"It is a unique experience and it is unique for us because we have never done anything like this. I have been to a singer songwriter event in Florida and it was fabulous. I expect nothing less from the one that we are doing here," said Paula Williams, AMA Executive Director.

The event was from 8:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Tickets were $20 at the door.

But the concert isn't the only event Friday night.

Thomasville and Americus both have First Friday events Friday night. 

Many restaurants will have specials and a number of places will have live music. 

There will also be an Italian Feast at the Thomasville airport.  They'll have restored aircraft for folks to admire while they dine. 

Valdosta State University is also offering free tickets to the football game Saturday night. If you are interested you can call the VSU Blazer ticket office.
