You're invited to a series of concerts in the Red River District this spring.

Alive After 5, a new series of live music concerts is set to debut on Thursday, March 3, in the Red River District under the Texas Street Bridge in downtown Shreveport.

The first concert in the series will feature The Good News, a high energy band that combines influences of Motown and the early years of rock and roll. The band will play from 5-7 p.m.

More concerts are planned for the first Thursdays of April and May as well, with bands to be announced.

The city has offered its Free Fridays Forever concert series in the Red River District for about a year now. But organizers think it might be easier to attract a crowd on Thursday nights during those after work hours.

SPAR has been helping in the planning of this downtown series of concerts.
