Midtown Raleigh’s most active entertainment district is once again giving us a reason to arrive at work late on Friday.

The Midtown Beach Music Concert Series is held at the North Hills Commons every Thursday through August. The weekly event is one of the most popular post-work gatherings in the Triangle.

The concerts start at 6:00 p.m. and run until 9:00 p.m. and the North Hills Commons is located in the West section of the development along Six Forks Rd. and the Beltline. If you feel that 9:00 is still to early to call it a night, then North Hills offers you a number of late dinner and drink options.

If you happen to be new to the area, get used to beach music. It’s kind of a fusion of Motown, country and bluegrass with a hint of 60s folk. It’s kind of hard to explain, but just know that it’s really fun and all about time spent along the southeastern coast.

Years ago, before Downtown Raleigh revitalized Fayetteville Street, there was an occasional concert series called “Alive after Five” that drew thousands to the square outside the convention center for a few Thursdays in the spring. But at that time, there wasn’t a whole bunch to do after the show. That event is still held in places but it will never replace the vibe it created in the late 1990s.

The Midtown Beach Music Series at North Hills has become an outstanding replacement.
