The Rye Arts Center is bringing live music downtown for a second time this Thursday.
The RAC started the series back on September 29th, adding excitement to the nightlife of Rye (low bar, but guess that's the way we like it in the sleepy suburbs!). The performance series is at Le Pain Quotidien on Purchase Street.
Each evening will introduce you to new singers, songwriters, and bands who will share their unique sounds with you in this intimate setting. Come out for an evening for food, drink, and great live music. A third evening is already planned for Thursday, November 10th.
Thursday, October 20, 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30)
$10 Advance Tickets
$12 At The Door
