Downtown Tempe Authority created Beyond the Bricks in response to the community’s call for more support of the local music scene.“Tempe and the region are rich with creative talent and our goal is to make our downtown the go‐to one‐stop for free fun for all ages,” states DTA. They have lined up a great first season of Beyond the Bricks featuring some wonderful local bands offering an eclectic array of music! The Beyond the Bricks series has reinvigorated the Hayden Square Amphitheater and introduced the community to new music! 


Each week a new local band is featured with the live music kicking off at 6pm! This February 23rd come out and enjoy Tempe's very own rock and roll band The Black Moods (a blend of Bad Company and the Foo Fighters) who will be hitting the stage as they tour their new album “Medicine”. "The Black Moods have been making waves in the music scene and have gained quite the fan base for their rock n’ roll sound, heavily influenced by rock bands of the 70’s," according to DTA.


March 2nd features the eclectic Saints of Eirinn who blends Punk, Country, Rock, Celtic and Americana, promising to be a great show! Upcoming bands will be announced soon! The current line up for Beyond the Bricks is online now  and more bands are set to be announced through end of season.


Experience Beyond the Bricks and rediscover everything Mill Avenue has to offer! Remember scheduled acts are subject to change without notice and the Beyond the Bricks series will run weekly through May 25th 2017. Don’t miss incredible live music from local bands, beer + wine, food each week.
