Starting Wednesday, June 20, the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in University City strikes up their third annual P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights, a weekly outdoor concert series to last through the end of August.
Featuring a mix of international music styles displaying sounds of Brazil’s popular bossa nova beats, funk fusion and Middle Eastern folk/rock, the summertime tunes will take place in the museum’s gardenscape (indoors in the event of rain) with drinks and bites available at the garden bar.
First up in the rotating schedule is Philadelphia-centered group Barakka, showcasing eastern and western multi-instrumental talents of Turkish folk-rock.
Admission is just $5 for the three-hour fest (5-8 p.m.), and it includes entry to explore the museum’s galleries which are open late until 8 p.m.
Bonus: $15.50 per person gets you a chance to tour Maya 2012: Lords of Time, the museum’s current exhibition, which is typically $22.50 (savings!), on display through January.
