Birch Aquarium presents August’s Green Flash Seaside Summer Concert


Shawn Mullins, the singer-songwriter best known for his Top 10 hit “Lullaby,” will bring his southern-style music to Birch Aquarium from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20.


Mullins will perform on the aquarium’s outdoor tide-pool plaza. Doors open at 6 p.m. for ages 21 and up. For reservations, call (858) 534-4109. Cost is $20 for public in advance and walk-in admission is $25.

Mullins garnered national attention in 1998 after releasing the album Soul’s Core, which featured the Grammy-nominated “Lullaby.” The song eventually hit number one on the Adult Top 40, number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 9 on the Modern Rock Tracks. In March, Mullins released his newest album, “honeydew.”

Green Flash Concerts, co-hosted by 102.1 KPRI and supported by San Diego County Volkswagen Dealers, are for music fans ages 21 and older only.

Attendees can experience the aquarium after hours and purchase food and drinks provided by Rock Bottom Brewery and Restaurant. Watch for a real “green flash,” a rare phenomenon caused by the refraction of light as the sun sets.

Green Flash concerts support the mission of Birch Aquarium at Scripps and its newest exhibit, Feeling the Heat: The Climate Challenge.
