'Friday Night Live' concert series debuts Friday

The Convention and Visitors Bureau is partnering with the Granada Theatre on a free concert series starting Friday and continuing through the summer.


The "Friday Night Live" series should be a good way to highlight up-and-coming talent, according to theater director Bryan Williams.

CVB Director Susan Rathke says the concerts will fill a void in the summer entertainment schedule after Live in the Lot concerts weren't held last year.
