A huge crowd gathered in downtown Lincolnton Thursday night (July 29th) to enjoy the July Alive After Five concert featuring Too Much Sylvia.
The next Alive After Five will be August 26th with Blackwater, a large group that plays top 40, blues, country and beach music.
There will be one more Alive After Five this year after that--on September 16th, when the Cat5 Band will perform.
Music fans won't have to wait to enjoy free music. The Lincoln Cultural Center will hold a free concert out front on Saturday (July 31st). Stephen and Jeff Neil, Synergy Twins Electric Violins, will perform on the front porch of the Cultural Center at 7 PM. Those attending should bring a lawn chair for seating. Food from Daddy K's BBQ will be available. BrickTree Brewing will also be there; and JK Cones will sell ice cream.
