Join the Times Square Alliance and the Clocktower Gallery next Wednesday, July 10 at 9:30pm for Sky Lines: an evening of music with Jana Hunter and Peals. The performance, which will take place on the breezy rooftop of the Playwright Celtic Pub (732 Eighth Avenue at 46th Street), is the final event in the 2013 After Hours series that brings experiential, multimedia programming to select venues around Times Square.

Jana Hunter will be playing selections from her solo spectrum of ambient murmurs and sound textures and dreamlike pop sighs, evoking a serene, summertime ode to Times Square’s skyline and warm nights.

Peals, a Baltimore-based band, will round out the evening’s performance with their meditative and intimate sounds.

“The rooftop of the Playwright Celtic Pub is the ideal setting for a dusk dream: Jana Hunter will transform into a nymph and sit atop the thatched roof of the bar—just visible against the skyline. Her ethereal voice will float above the cacophony of midtown,” said Sherry Dobbin, Director of Public Art for the Times Square Alliance.

After Hours is a collaboration between Times Square Arts, the public arts program of the Times Square Alliance, and the Clocktower Gallery. The program is curated by Alanna Heiss, Clocktower Director, and Joe Ahearn, Clocktower Curator of Performance and Installation, in collaboration with the Clocktower curatorial team, Beatrice Johnson, Jim Toth, and Tim Goossens.

Entry to After Hours is by invitation only, but as the exclusive media partner for the program, Hyperallergic has a limited amount of tickets for readers who RSVP.
