On the Beat

Groove in the Garden aims to cool off

Groove in the Garden is returning to the Triangle’s outdoor-music mix in 2017, but with a new, improved and (organizers hope) cooler time slot. In an attempt to beat the heat, this year’s model has been pushed back two months later from the customary mid-August date to Oct. 21.

It’s a solid local/regional lineup, too, playing at the Raleigh Little Theatre Rose Garden:

*American Aquarium

*Toubab Krewe


*Lonnie Walker

*Rebekah Todd & The Odyssey

*Dark Water Rising

*Hank, Pattie and The Current

*Ghostt Bllonde
