Location: Tang Rooftop
Free and open to the public
Join us on the rooftop of the Tang for a performance by And Other Poems, led by artist and songwriter Tim Davis, whose exhibition Opener 31: Tim Davis—When We Are Dancing (I Get Ideas) was on view at the Tang earlier this year. And Other Poems draws from influences as diverse as Burt Bacharach and Vic Chesnutt. The band asks you to listen to the lyrics and sit in the groove. These songs are funny, poignant, and about things like William Eggleston, the TSA, McMansions, and the landscapes of Los Angeles and Upstate New York.
For its 19th season, the Upbeat on the Roof summer series highlights regional musical talent every Thursday, July 11 through August 22 from 7:00-8:00 pm.
Performances are free and open to the public. The rooftop is accessible via the museum elevator or outdoor staircases. In the case of inclement weather the series is held inside the museum.
