  • Starting out – Alive After Five returns tonight at the Epicenter 5-10pm.  Last week was rockin’ with some awesome 80s hair band music and continuing with the blast from the past theme this week features The Frontiers, a Journey tribute band.  Classic!!  Love the music choices – go enjoy some great music at the Epicenter tonight on he Rooftop stage.  Suckerpunch is also playing tonight on the Courtyard Stage so go check it out.  Love this video Alive After Five tweeted this week getting ready for Thursday:
