What is Alive After Five?

Shake those winter blues away at Charlotte’s number one weekly event of the summer to see your friends, network and kick the weekend off in style, Alive After Five. The 2018 season has been re-vamped from years past and will include all-new, live music acts, new drinks and a new look.

This year attendees can expect an upbeat collection of performances throughout the summer including Country Night on the first Thursday of each month and tribute bands the third Thursday of each month. The April lineup includes country bands Diamonds & Whiskey and Rebel Union (April 5), Parks Brothers and Travers Brothership (April 12), tribute bands Greasy Keys and 20 Ride (April 19) and Late Night Special and Hot Sauce (April 26).

The new Alive After Five Craft Beer Bar will include local and regional craft beers such as Wicked Weed, Elysian, Goose Island, Sugar Creek, Southern Tier and more.

“More than any single year in our last 18, this year’s changes will reflect an incredible refresh for our event,” said Larry Farber of East Coast Entertainment. “From the music, the craft beers, the look and feel of our staff, we expect our biggest and best year ever!”

“Alive After Five is the event that brings Charlotte together on Thursday nights,” said Mike Stephens of Full House Productions. “The new, revamped, non-stop live music will kick off at 5:30 p.m. and is the perfect place to meet friends right after work to kick start the weekend in style.”

Alive After Five kicks off at 5p.m. on Thursday, April 5, 2018 and will continue every Thursday throughout the summer. Alive After Five is held at 210 East Trade Street, Charlotte, NC 28202 at Rooftop 210 in the EpiCentre and is easily accessible from the Light Rail stop at the EpiCentre.
