"Ho, ho, ho, you commie bastards."

7 p.m., Timberwood Amphitheater, Magic Springs and Crystal Falls. $35.99-$60.99.

Did Riverfest whet your appetite for massive crowds, nostalgia-driven concerts, funnel cakes and people misguidedly not wearing shirts? From Saturday through the end of August, Magic Springs and Crystal Falls hosts a weekly concert series every Saturday in its Timberwood Amphitheater that will help you re-experience that festive feeling. For just park admission — or $10 more if you want a reserved seat or $15 for a VIP seat — you can finish a day of water-parking or ride riding at concerts by everyone from Colbie Caillat (June 13) to Three Dog Night (Aug. 29). The series kicks off with a Southern institution, the Charlie Daniels Band. At 72 and looking more and more like Santa Claus with every passing year, the fiddle-playing Southern rocker has emerged, particularly in the last decade, as a right-wing firebrand, advocating for a stringent immigration policy, arguing that global warming is a myth and regularly railing against the “gonadless politicians” in Washington.
