The Rockin' Hollywoods present "Solid Gold Rock 'n' Roll" from the 1950s to the 1980s at the Douglas County Courthouse lawn in Alexandria on Thursday, July 20.

Formed in 1973, the retro band gets audience members out of their chairs and dancing.

In case of rain, rock 'n' rollers will move to the Alexandria Area High School Performing Arts Center.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is the ninth in a series of weekly performances scheduled throughout the summer. Organized by The Red Willow Arts Coalition, the free concerts are sponsored by Anderson Funeral Home and Elden's Fresh Foods as well as nightly sponsors. Thursday's music is sponsored by Bell State Bank - Integrity Title.

This is the seventh season for "Concerts on the Courthouse Lawn." Red Willow encourages concert-goers to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Proceeds from popcorn sales will support a new playground for Miltona Science Magnet School.
