Downtown Asheville After 5Asheville is the place to be this Friday night!  Rock the night away to live music at Downtown Asheville After 5.  From 5pm to 9pm on the third Friday of every month through September, Downtown After 5 brings a different live musical act to the downtown Asheville area.  Best of all, this live entertainment is absolutely free to the public!

Tomorrow’s Downtown Asheville After 5 opens with The Secret B-Sides.  They blend old school and new school funk with R&B.  Headliner Space Capone is a unique mixture of horns, rhythm section and electronics.  Everyone is encouraged to get up and dance.

Local breweries, such as Asheville Brewing Co, Highland Brewing Co and Pisgah Brewing, will be providing beer for sale at each concert.  Of course, national brands (like Budweiser) will be available on tap as well as wine and water.  Anyone planning on purchasing alcohol will need to be 21+, provide a valid photo ID and purchase a $2 wristband.  Your $2 purchase will go to support Katy’s Kids, a local charity working to eradicate hungry children.  Even in a prosperous country like ours, thousands of children go to be hungry every night.  Katy’s Kids give Asheville children in need a backpack full of food from MANNA FoodBank to take home.

Food vendors will also be on hand offering sandwiches, pizza, tacos and ice cream for purchase to all concert attendees.  It’s a great night out for the entire family to enjoy.  Strap on your dancing shoes, pack the kids in the care and come to the Downtown Asheville After 5 live musical event this Friday.  Don’t worry, though.  If you miss this free concert tomorrow, there will be another one next month (July 20, 2012).
