Live Music at the Arizona Center PosterBeginning March 29, The Arizona Center will be host the first of its Live Music Series at the Grand Staircase.

On the first Friday of every month and on alternating Thursdays, downtowners can leisurely bike or wander over to catch the show from 5 to 7 p.m., or suburb-dwellers can come make a night out of it with dinner or happy hour at one of the many restaurants inside the center. (Bonus: Restaurants and stores typically validate up to 2 hours of free parking in the Arizona Center’s parking garage.)

Enjoy a different genre each time, from classic rock to jazz, country to covers of classics. Here’s the lineup for the series:

•  Flying Pig Band, March 29
•  Michael Villanueva Duo, April 6
•  Southwest Surfers, April 12
•  Bryne Donaldson, April 26
•  Michael Villanueva Duo, May 4
