The Arts Council’s Summer Musicfest and Movies on the Green series continue Tuesday, July 3, with a mix of favorites to get you revved up for the July Fourth holiday.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., followed by the movie at dusk. Gates open at 6 p.m.

The concert will feature VerTigo, an Atlanta pop rock band led by the lead vocals of Peggie Hoskins and harmonies by Wayne Langford, Linda Dixon, Kerry Leo and Jay Millwood. Their style ranges from rock, funk, pop to blues, playing favorites from the 1950s through today.

The movie will be “Top Gun,” marking its 25th anniversary with Tom Cruise as a daredevil fight pilot, an iconic film that spawned a fashion movement of aviator glasses and bomber jackets.

Other concerts and movies in the summer series include “16 Love” (July 13), The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (July 20), The Swingin’ Medallions (Aug. 3) and “The Lorax” (Aug. 24).
