The event, which takes place each Friday in the Fountain Plaza of the N.C. Music Factory, kicks off on April 29 with the "toe-suckin' geek rock" of Southern Culture on the Skids and Charlotte surf rock group The Aqualads.

The schedule includes some of the bands as last year - Cowboy Mouth, Vertical Horizon, Tonic and Ed Kowalczyk of Live - and a few of local bands are also on the schedule including the Hot Gates, Chris Cook and Simplified.

Each rain-or-shine concert will start at 6 p.m. and end by 10 p.m. A portion of the proceeds of each concert will benefit the "Back to Life Foundation."
