If you could go back in time, what advice would you give to yourself? What would the person of today tell the person of the past to help on that road to now?

Adam Perry, bassist for Georgia jam band Perpetual Groove, would tell past-Perry to do something he failed to do while growing up.

“Join the high school orchestra instead of anything else,” said Perry, who formed Perpetual Groove in 1997, while attending the Savannah College of Art & Design.

In a family where everything from Stevie Wonder to Soundgarden was being played, Perry studied music at home and went to school with the goal of becoming an illustrator.

“I was big into the art program in my school,” he said. “When I thought about music, I thought about band, brass and drums. I didn’t even think about the orchestra. Orchestra to me was violins, cellos, not the upright bass.”

While his commitment to art led the way, Perry’s passion for playing music went along for the ride to Savannah and helped create Perpetual Groove.

Catch Perpetual Groove on Saturday at Vinyl Music Hall, 2 Palafox Place. Advanced tickets for this all-ages show are $12. Saturday, the price increases to $17. There is a $5 surcharge for those younger than 21.

Doors open at 8 p.m. For more details, visit www.vinylmusichall.com

Cedric Burnside

Get a heavy dose of Mississippi rock tonight as Cedric Burnside plays Vinyl. You may recognize Burnside from his role as Samuel L. Jackson’s drummer in the film “Black Snake Moan,” but the 2009 winner of Blues Music Awards’ “Best New Artist Debut” is more than just a musician with screen time. Burnside is also the grandson of R.L. Burnside, and considered by some as one of the best drummers in the world.

Tickets for this all-ages show are $5. There is an additional $5 charge at the door if you’re younger than 21. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Afroman returns

In 2011, I witnessed something I’ve never seen by a Grammy-nominated artist. Afroman performed half his set with a 40-ounce beer, then shredded the hell out of his double-neck Gibson SG guitar.

Will it happen again? Find out Saturday as the 2002 Grammy nominee for Best Rap Solo Performance returns to The Handlebar, 319 N. Tarragona St.

Advanced tickets are $12, increasing to $14 on Saturday for this all-ages show. Doors open at 9 p.m. For more details, visit www.pensacolahandlebar.com.

Ex-Breathers

Listening to “Collision” by hardcore punk band Ex-Breathers, I thought of Henry Rollins’ post-Black Flag group, Rollins Band. See the Tallahassee group as it joins Earl’s Killer Squirrel and Altered States on Monday at Sluggo’s Vegetarian Restaurant, 101 S. Jefferson St.

Tickets are $5. Show starts at 9 p.m. For more details, visit www.sluggos.net.
