Head to Cargo for a little bluesy country feeling with JJ Grey & Mofro and The Mark Sexton Band on May 22. Grey and his band started out playing greasy rock joints, but haven't let fame go to their heads. They still love playing the southern rock they're best known for and are bound to have you dancing in the aisles in no time at all. Filed under the rock genre on iTunes, The Mark Sexton Band's music sounds like a cross between rock and a ballad being crooned in a smoky bar under a single bright light. No matter your plans for the rest of the weekend, Cargo is the place to be Friday night. Show time is 7 p.m. and tickets are $25. Purchase tickets here.
