Rooftop concerts start Wednesday

DOWNEY – Concerts in the park may have ended, but there are still opportunities to hear free live music while outdoors in Downey. The city’s new rooftop concert series debuts Wednesday, with a concert on the top deck of the downtown parking structure behind the Krikorian Theatre.

Swing Kings, a big band that plays everything from 1940s jazz to Top 40, will open the series. The band is accompanied by professional dancers and has performed at Disney Concert Hall and Paramount Studios.

After the concert, the Golden Globe-nominated film “Grease” (PG-13) will be screened.

The free event begins with the concert at 7 p.m. and the movie at approximately 9 p.m. Residents should bring their own chairs.

The rooftop concert series will take place every fourth Wednesday of the month through October. For questions, call (562) 904-7238 or go to and click the “Discovery Downey” tab.
