Thursday Nights Live

Thursday Nights Live are musical events that bring faculty, staff, and graduate students together to enjoy each other's company and to listen to live musical sets performed by Southern California musicians.  Thursday Nights Live take place in the HUB Plaza from 5:15-8:15 p.m.  Wine, beer, soft drinks, and food are available for purchase.  Parking is free in Lot 1 for the first 50 cars.

The group Better Late was forced to cancel and will reschedule during winter term, but we will have guitarist Walter Clark back by popular demand on Dec. 1.  In addition to the new food choices, beer is still $3 and wine only $5.

Thanks to the tremendous support of UCR faculty, staff, and graduate students, TNL has been funded for the rest of the academic year.  We expect to hold six events each term.  TNL is rain or shine! In case of cold weather or rain, TNL will move to the HUB Dining Area.  We expect to hold TNL in the HUB Dining Area on Dec. 1 and Dec. 8, but the show will definitely go on!

The schedule for the remainder of fall term is as follows:

Nov. 17: Quitapenas

Dec. 1: Walter Clark

Dec. 8: Brothers Igniting a Groove

The campus is also sponsoring a farmer's market on Thursday nights from 4:00-8:00 p.m. at Glen Mor Market.  You may want to check it out before or after!  

The TNL Advisory Committee consists of Ken Barish (Physics), Steven Brint (Sociology & Public Policy), Javier Hurtado (Theater), Yolanda Moses (Anthropology), Louis Van Den Berg (KUCR), Ameae Walker (Vice Provost of Academic Affairs and Biomedical Sciences), and Georgia Warnke (Center for Ideas & Society and Political Science). Assistant Vice Chancellor Brenda Ice oversees administrative support.
