Summer Sunsets Concert Series at the Bay Area Discovery Museum
July 8, 2011Posted by pamela |
This summer, Sausalito's Bay Area Discovery Museum is open late by popular demand on select Fridays for the Summer Sunsets Concert Series. Come to the museum from 5–7 pm tonight, July 8, and July 22, August 5 and 19 for an evening of family fun by the Bay with music, food, and the special exhibition Curious George: Let's Get Curious! Curious George himself makes a personal appearance at 5:30 pm (so don't forget your camera) and musical performances begin at 6 pm.
This year's Summer Sunsets lineup:
- July 8: Rhythm Child introduces children and families to the basic elements of music in a drum circle experience. Come drum, dance, and sing in the museum's Festival Plaza.
- July 22: Popular Bay Area children's entertainer Enzo Garcia brings his eclectic selection of instruments— including five-string banjo, musical saw, accordion, harmonica, and enzotar—and songs to the museum.
- August 5: Dance and sing along with the Bloody Scupper Plunder Club as they perform songs of piracy, general mayhem, and high-seas adventure.
- August 22: It's always a dance party with Asheba, the energetic singer, songwriter, and storyteller whose show is spiced with Caribbean and world beats inspired by his childhood on Trinidad.
Tickets to Summer Sunsets cost $5 for BADM members and $10 for the general public, and include the performance, museum admission, and the Curious George meet-and-greet. Buy tickets to all four events and save 15%! You can order tickets in advance online here.
All that play, dancing, and singing will make you hungry, so Food Truck Crush will be on hand at the museum with gourmet mobile food. Grab some dinner from Big Jim's BBQ and dessert from SusieCakes from 5–7 pm at each Summer Sunsets event.
The Bay Area Discovery Museum is located in Sausalito's Fort Baker at 557 McReynolds Road, at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.
