Square roots

Start your weekend early with the free Thursday Night Music Series, which runs every week this summer, through August 25. Held from 5 to 7 p.m. in University Square—that’s the corner of 36th and Walnut streets—the concert series is a great way to kick back with your coworkers and unwind after a hard day. The music is varied, and ranges from Latin to jazz to Afro-Cuban. Coming up this month: ONE Indian fusion on June 9, Funky Friends on June 16, Synthesis Latin Band on June 23 and John Breslin Quartet on June 30.
