UpBeat on the Roof, the popular summer concert series on the roof of the Tang Teaching Museum, has moved to Thursday nights. This new time slot coincides with the museum’s extended hours – you’ll have time to check out what the museum has on display while you’re there to rock out to awesome bands.
New Night, New Museum Hours
The Tang Teaching Museum’s galleries are now open Tuesday through Sunday from 12pm to 5pm, with extended hours to 9pm on Thursdays. With the performances happening at 7pm, you’ll have a chance to see the art exhibits both before and after enjoying UpBeat on the Roof.
UpBeat on the Roof always has a great lineup of diverse groups, with everything from classical music to bluegrass to good old fashioned rock n’ roll. Guests enjoy fantastic music from both local and national bands – all on top of the museum’s roof!
These events regularly attract large crowds, so it’s advised to arrive early. There is free parking in the lots adjacent to the museum. In the event of rain, concerts are performed inside.
