You can call Great Peacock a folk band... but don’t expect them to make music for campfires or square dances. Raised in the Deep South and headquartered in Nashville, they’re a group of red-blooded country boys who aren’t afraid of the big city. Case in point: Making Ghosts -- the duo’s harmony-heavy, guitar-driven debut album -- whose 11 songs find the middle ground between rootsy, down-home Americana and super-sized arena pop/rock.

John Emerald Distilling Company in downtown Opelika, Alabama will host the band on Saturday night, October 24 for a live show starting at 7:00 PM.

Also playing this weekend: Sturgill Simpson at The Tabernacle [tickets], The Lone Bellow at Center Stage [tickets].
