Kick back, relax, and enjoy some of Philadelphia’s best live bands Wednesday evenings in the Penn Museum’s beautiful outdoor Stoner Courtyard with your colleagues. The eighth annual Summer Nights Concert Series brings an eclectic lineup of performances—with the sounds of Creole Zydeco, Latin Jazz, Middle Eastern folk, Pre-Revolutionary Cuba, and more. The galleries stay open, with an optional guided tour (topics vary) at the set break. Outside, the Pepper Mill Café offers light foods and beverages.
This week’s performance is by Zydeco-A-Go-Go. With Creole Zydeco and Cajun 2-steps, this group combines funky New Orleans rhythm and blues and vintage Louisiana rock ‘n roll into a spicy gumbo of irresistible dance music. Admission is just $10 general admission. Pay-what-you-wish for PennCard holders, Penn Medicine and CHOP employees with ID. FREE for Penn Museum Members.
