8 p.m., Magic Springs. $35.99-$45.99.

Taking its name from a hooker who allegedly mutilated and decapitated her clients, Molly Hatchet formed in 1971 in Jacksonville, Fla., melding loud, hard rock boogie with guitar-jam-oriented Southern rock. After its first album reached platinum status, its second, and more successful, release, “Flirtin With Disaster,” featured the title track the band would become known for in the following decades. Various incarnations and less-successful albums later, the group is still churning out Southern-fried rock, and is back on the road with longtime tour mate Blackfoot, mostly known for its smash hit, “Train, Train.” As both bands could be labeled Skynyrd contemporaries, in the late 1970s and early 1980s they became lost in the post-MTV era of visually-oriented bands. But recent years have served 1970s arena rockers quite well with tour packages such as this one. With both acts featuring most of their original members, this next-to-last installment of the Timberwood Concert Series should invoke classic Barton Coliseum gigs, minus the beloved designated burn-fests up high in section.

    Here's a storyline to watch: The Family Council, the conservative Christian group that's long fought against same-sex marriage and abortion rights, has come out heavy against Issue 1, the so-called "tort reform" ballot proposal that would limit damage awards in lawsuits. The messaging battle over Issue 1 has long been seen as one that pitted the deep pockets of the state Chamber of Commerce and big business in the state against the deep pockets of trial lawyers. Could the Family Council's truck with evangelicals tip the scales?
