Green Flash: Cracker
The Birch Aquarium at Scripps transforms its Tide Pool Plaza into an outdoor music venue with panoramic ocean views on June 21 for the Green Flash concert series with Cracker, described fairly accurately in tour announcements as “an alt-rock Americana group with elements of insurgent-country, punk, and classic rock.” Over a dozen members have come and gone since their 1990 debut, with only singer/guitarists David Lowery and Johnny Hickman remaining from their original incarnation, alongside a trio of support players picked up in 2014. Admission includes parking and access to all aquarium exhibits, with proceeds benefiting exhibits and educational programming. Admission includes the concert, entrance to all aquarium exhibits, and parking. Food, beer and wine are available for purchase. Proceeds benefit exhibits and educational programming at Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
