There was little time left Friday night in the Levitt Pavilion's summer season of free entertainment, presented this year on Jesup Green.

With only two shows on the schedule until next summer, that may help explain the big crowd that turned out to rock out for the Distractions, a band whose members have been playing together for more than two decades.

The band's repertoire includes covering classic rock by legendary bands like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Kinks, the Cars, the Talking Heads and many more, which spurred many in the audience to leap to their feet and dance.
