Midweek Music Series: The Embers 

When: Wed., Aug. 14, 6-8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
Now 55 years into their career, beach music bastions The Embers still play hundreds of gigs around the world annually and are an institution in the Carolinas. The group can lay claim to one of the genre's signature tunes, "I Love Beach Music," though they don't limit themselves to songs meant for doing The Shag. Pulling from a repertoire of covers rooted in soul, R&B, Motown, funk and disco, the band aims to make the crowd move. Don't expect innovation, but bring dancing shoes to understand why The Embers remain a strong draw. (The group also plays 6–9 p.m. Aug. 15 at the free Midtown Beach Music Series in North Hills.) —Spencer Griffith
