Weekend to do list: November 6-8


Cesar Salinas at the Indian Festival and Pow Wow in 2002. The festival returns to Stone Mountain Park Nov. 5-8.

This weekend is all about sports, stage and a few really fantastic festivals. I’ll be away in Michigan, visiting the family, but Atlanta will clearly have a grand old time while I’m gone. As always, keep an eye on the Atlanta Music Scene blog for more live music picks and ticket info. If you’ve got more suggestions for this weekend, feel free to share them in the comments! – Jamie G.
