Saturday, doors at 7 p.m., 8 p.m. show time, all ages, $15

IN 2007, Scott Baston left his highly successful band, Moonshine Still, to form The Saint Francis Band with friend Jeremy Johnson. Established on the basis of denouncing negative egos and emphasizing humanitarianism, the lineup has rotated, but Saint Francis’s current members (all seven of ‘em) are seasoned players, having performed with the likes of Sugarland, Indigo Girls, Government Mule, and more.

Formed in Macon, and now based in Athens, the band’s 2013 EP, Revolution Radio, has strands of folk woven between jam grooves, slide guitar strains, and reggae rhythms. They inked a deal with Universal/Famous records earlier in the year, and LP Cassidy’s Sky is due soon.
