Downtown Provo was alive Friday night with the sights and sounds of Freedom Days and the Provo Rooftop Concert Series.

Joshua James, Desert Noises, and Paul Jacobsen and the Madison Arm performed at the second of four shows in the series’ 10th and final season.

The local bands’ folk-rock, Americana-style music filled the cool, laid-back summer night air as the sun set.

“Happy Fourth of July. Happy Independence Day,” said Sarah Wiley, Rooftop’s CEO and co-founder, as the show started. “It’s a really fun time to be in Provo, and we’re really excited to be a part of it.”
