This October, The Downtown Tempe Authority has launched a new weekly concert series at Hayden Amphitheatre called Beyond The Bricks: Thursday Night Live presented by State Farm. Now that the weather is becoming bearable in the evenings, this free music series offers families, locals and residents a fun and informal way to spend the evening outdoors. Attendees will be able to enjoy musical performances by revered and up‐and‐coming local bands and artists. The ADA‐compliant, wheelchair accessible series kicked off with local band Georgia Chrome and will run through the end of May 2017.
We’re keen listeners and have asked the public what they want to see and do in Downtown Tempe,” said the Downtown Tempe Authority’s Director of Messaging Miranda Edwards. “We heard loud and clear that the public wants […] more support for the local music community. Tempe and the region are rich with creative talent and our goal is to make our downtown the go‐to one‐stop for free fun for all ages.”
Food and refreshments will be for sale from local Tempe eateries such as Blasted Barley Beer Company and Bacus Bros Hot Dogs, as well as beer and wine for those 21+. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chairs and their friends to enjoy the weekly event which opens at 5:30pm, with live music starting at 6pm.
