The Live & Local Summer Series has really found its groove in its third and final installment. Hiahli brings its sweet and sweaty mix of R&B and funk rhythms with hip-hop vocals to this block party on Fargo's Eighth Street, between Main and First Avenues South. DJ AP opens the show, but the evening also includes a tailgate opera performance from Fargo Moorhead Opera, a fashion review from Carmine & Hayworth and Violet Vintage, art from Ecce Gallery and food trucks from Mama G’s Taqueria and Namaste Chai. Admission is free and open to the public, with gates opening at 5 p.m.

Bluestem Amphitheater has been relatively quiet this summer with no Trollwood mainstage musicals and fewer concerts. Thursday night, however, will present a joyous noise as Symphony Rocks returns to the Moorhead stage. Jane Linde Capistran leads the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra on a jam with members of Post-Traumatic Funk Syndrome and others on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Chicago’s “Beginnings,” Led Zeppelin's “Kashmir,” Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen” and more. This concert is truly classical rock. Music starts at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $75.

Twenty-five years after making a splash with “MMMBop,” Hanson is back with a new sound. Or, a few of them, actually. The brothers released “RGB” (for red, blue and green) earlier this year, with each contributing five songs, ranging from pop and rock to Americana. Hear for yourself when the trio takes the stage outdoors at Fargo Brewing this Sunday night. Music starts at 7 p.m. for this all-ages show. Tickets range from $39.50 to $65.
