Atlanta’s Chris Cauley plays a pair of shows at Eddie’s Attic this weekend.

FRIDAY

Chris Cauley

The former “The Voice” contestant is bringing his soulful pipes to the intimate space at Eddie’s Attic, where he plans to perform a batch of originals and some of his favorite covers. Cauley, an avid sports fan, probably will throw in some baseball talk to complement the living room vibe of the show, which he will share with another former “The Voice” performer, James David Carter.

7:15 and 9:30 p.m. March 25. $15-$20. Eddie’s Attic, 515-B N. McDonough St., Decatur. 1-877-435-9849, ticketfly.com.

Yacht Rock Revue

The pride of Atlanta cover acts — seriously, if you’ve never seen them live, make it happen — is ditching its artfully reconstructed ’70s soft-rock covers for a performance of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and the Beatles’ “Abbey Road.” Even if it’s a fraction as tight as their usual performances, you’ll be impressed.

8:30 p.m. March 25. $20 (advance), $25 (day of the show). Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 404-524-7354, ticketmaster.com.

SATURDAY

Cowboy Mouth

The veteran New Orleans rockers will headline the 13th annual Oyster Crawfish Festival and hit the stage at 6 p.m. Prior to their arrival, check out performances from Tray Dahl and the Jugtime Ragband (2 p.m.), Wasted Potential Marching Band (3 p.m.) and Kick the Robot (4:15 p.m.). Cowboy Mouth’s last studio album, “Go,” arrived in 2014, but live is where the band has always thrived.

2 p.m. March 26. $15. Park Tavern, 500 10th St. N.E., Atlanta. 404-249-0001, parktavern.com.

Dale Watson & His Lonestars

When the Texas honky-tonk hero spent a chunk of time in Atlanta in 2012 during his stint in the Stephen King-John Mellencamp musical “Ghost Brothers of Darkland County” at the Alliance Theatre, he also lined up a weekly gig at Smith’s, a place he’s loved to play during his decades as a live music hound. Watson’s most recent album, “Call Me Insane,” arrived last summer.

With Cold Heart Canyon. 9 p.m. March 26. $20 (advance), $25 (day of the show), $125 (VIP tables). 18 and older. Smith’s Olde Bar, 1578 Piedmont Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 1-877-725-8849, ticketweb.com.

TUESDAY

Unwritten Law

With a lineup of Scott Russo (vocals, guitar), Wade Youman (drums), Jonny Grill (bass) and Chris Lewis (guitar), the heavy-hitting punk rockers are back on the road for a month. The band expects to release a compilation album called “Acoustic” on its new label, Cyber Track Records, this spring, their first offering since 2011’s “Swan.” Russo said fans will hear reworked versions of 11 previously released songs, a cover and one new track on the album — and might hear some of those offerings live as well.

With Fenix TX, Suck Brick Kid and Dog Years. 7 p.m. March 29. $15. Hell at the Masquerade, 695 North Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.
