LUMBERTON — Hip Pocket Band will close the Alive After 5 concert series Thursday.

The show will run from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Third and Water streets in front of Adelio’s Restaurant. Admission is free, and food will be available for purchase. Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair for comfort.

The cover band performs old and new songs from all genres. The band’s song list includes “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift, “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love” by Barry White and “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5.

The forecast for Thursday evening calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms and a low temperature of about 77 degrees.

“Weather-wise it has been a difficult year, but we had great attendance and a great lineup,” Downtown Development Coordinator Connie Russ said. “It’s bittersweet that it’s coming to an end but I look forward to next year.”
