WAKE FOREST — Singer Phil Spence, left, guitarist Grady Crumpler, and other members of the Raleigh band Brickhouse brought down the roof Friday with Purple Rain, Don’t Stop Believin’, Love Train and other classics during the Friday Night on White concert in downtown Wake Forest. The family friendly event has brought thousands of people downtown, and, merchants say, some return the day after to shop. The music is a big draw, but so is the beer, which the town allows to be sold and served in the streets for the concert series. Some have objected to the town tipping its hat to tipplers.
