The Green Flash Concert Series at Birch Aquarium is described as the ultimate Southern California music experience.
Birch Aquarium announces Green Flash Concert lineup
Every summer Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego transforms its Tide Pool Plaza into an outdoor music venue unlike any other for the Green Flash Concert Series. These lively monthly concerts, presented in partnership with 101.5 KGB, STAR 94.1 and Belly Up Entertainment, provide the ultimate Southern California music experience while supporting a good cause.
The concert series, which is for ages 21 and up, combines live music with panoramic ocean views. Keep an eye out for a real “green flash,” a rare optical phenomenon caused by refraction of light as the sun sets on the horizon.
Here is the lineup for the 12th annual Green Flash Summer Concert Series:
Wednesday, June 21
Jon Foreman: Internationally known as the lead singer and guitarist of Switchfoot, Jon Foreman brings his gritty vocals and unique solo sound to the Green Flash stage.
Wednesday, July 19
Steve Poltz: Playful singer-songwriter and San Diego legend Steve Poltz returns for a clever, creative, and fun-filled evening. Always quirky and unpredictable.
Wednesday, Sept. 20
Pine Mountain Logsand Venice: The Pine Mountain Logs’ repertoire of high energy classic hits range from Led Zeppelin to the Jackson Five, Tom Petty, TLC, Aerosmith, Outkast and more, with surprise bridges and choruses around every corner.
Venice’s sound is at once familiar and fresh, their classic rock and folk influences — such as Crosby Stills & Nash, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder — apparent in their pop sensibilities.
All concerts are held from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and are general admission and standing room only. Savory bites, craft beers, and wines are available for purchase. Tickets are available for pre-purchase for $30.95 for members, $35.95 for the general public (convenience fees may apply). Walk up tickets are $41.95. Season passes are also available.
Admission includes the concert, entrance to all aquarium exhibits and parking. Proceeds support exhibits and educational programming at Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
