Franks + Dranks, Piedmont Arts’ annual summer concert and cookout, will take place Friday, July 14, 6 p.m., in the Gravely-Lester Art Garden.
Enjoy hot dogs and fixings from Hylton’s Wood-Cooking Grill, a cash bar and live music by Jake Earles. Earles is a singer and guitar player from Axton, Va. He spent 20 years living in Nashville, Tn. — playing everywhere from honky tonks to the Grand Ole Opry — and has toured the country with acts like Tim McGraw. Earles brings a mix of country, Americana, folk and soul to the stage.
Bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating. In case of rain, Franks + Dranks will be held at Piedmont Arts.
Admission is $20 per person, food included. Tickets are on sale now at Piedmont Arts and PiedmontArts.org.
