Yee-haw! The weekend is here. Nooga.com checks all the options and gives you our best bets for the top five.
Here Come the Mummies at Track 29
Not much is known about this strange group of ancient, musical kings risen from the dead. We do know a few things: One, they are mummies; and two, they are incredible musicians. OK, we could add a few more bullet points to that list, I guess: Three, they are hilarious; and four, it is rumored that a few members have Grammy Awards. The band returns to Chattanooga for what will no doubt be a high-energy performance. Catch them before they return to their tombs.
When: Friday, Sept. 6, 9 p.m.
Where: 1400 Market St.
How much: $25 (18+ show)
