Earth, Wind and Fire
This R&B and funk powerhouse took 16 tracks into the chart between 1974 and 1983, including irresistible gems such as “September” and “Let’s Groove.” It’s some of the most joyous music to climb the pop charts in the ’70s.
8 p.m. Sept. 23. $25-$99. Chastain Park Amphitheatre, 4469 Stella Drive. 404-733-4949.
Clarkston Surf Fest
It’s probably not the first place that comes to mind when you think surf music, but this DeKalb County city will ring with reverb-drenched guitars and groove to the sandy beach blanket vibe. Don’t miss Alabama’s Daikaiju, which combines kabuki masks and trebly guitars to fun and freaky effect. Check the fest’s website for the full line-up.
10 a.m. Sept. 24. Clarkston Community Center, 3701 College Ave., Clarkston. 404- 501-0107.
