Bands On The Bluff: UTC Takes The Bluff This Thursday

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

The school year kicks off with the Hunter Museum’s Bands on the Bluff. This month, the live music concert series features UTC student and hip hop artist Erik Tyler followed by headliner Moose Truck, delivering straight up rock from the heart of the new South.

Taking place Thursday at 6 p.m., the concert is open to all ages. "Come ready to dance your way into fall on the bluff," organizers said.

Throwback Thursday is the first Thursday of each month from 4-8 p.m. During Throwback Thursday the Hunter Museum’s permanent collection is free and open to the public, and admission to the temporary exhibition, Thrill After Thrill: Thirty Years of Wayne White, is a throwback price of $5 (free to members and children under 17 with a paying adult).

 A cash bar will be available.

Bands on the Bluff performances are the first Thursday of each month through October.
