LAFAYETTE — For the fifth year, locals will be able to spend Friday nights in August rocking out in the plaza at Mt. Diablo Boulevard and Moraga Road.

The "Rock the Plaza" series will again take place on three Friday nights in August at Lafayette's Elam & Margaret Brown Plaza Park — better known as Plaza Park.

The headliners start at 6 p.m., but those attending can arrive early for a good spot on the lawn.

"Lafayette has countless numbers of musicians, both aspiring and accomplished, as well as music fans," said Raja Singh, owner of Red House and a Lafayette resident. "The Rock the Plaza series is another great way for these musicians to share their music with the local community."

The band lineup is: Stagefrite on Aug. 13; Pacific Coast Band on Aug. 20; and Total Eclipse on Aug. 27.
