Birch Aquarium presents July’s Green Flash Seaside Summer Concert

As part of a 50-state tour, musician Eric Hutchinson will stop at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, for this month’s Green Flash Seaside Concert.

On Wednesday, July 16, the singer-songwriter will perform his unique blend of rock and folk pop from the aquarium’s outdoor tide-pool plaza. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Hailing from New York City, Hutchinson’s style of “sunshine pop” has earned him high praise from music critics and comparisons to Jason Mraz, Ben Folds and Billy Joel. His current album, “Sounds Like This,” is the highest-charting album by an unsigned act in iTunes history.

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

Attendees can experience the aquarium after-hours and enjoy food and drinks for purchase, provided by Rock Bottom Brewery and Restaurant. Keep an eye out 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.
