Music achieves its full emotional effect only when performed live, just as great literature becomes comprehensible only when screamed aloud in a crowded subway train. Enjoy public performance with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to Vulcan AfterTunes at Vulcan Park and Museum (a $30 value). This Groupon is valid for use at one event on the following dates:

  • September 25 with Will Hoge
  • October 9 with Scars on 45
  • October 23 with Diane Birch

AfterTunes fills three Sunday evenings with performances by local and national singers and songwriters that send dulcet melodies soaring out over impressive views of downtown. Bodies tote lawn chairs and blankets to the cast-iron Vulcan statue and the surrounding park to catch glints of rock, country, soul, and folk as Will Hoge performs. Audiences marvel at Scars on 45's front man, Danny Bemrose, as the former British soccer player strums intense melodies, which have been featured on programs such as Grey's Anatomy. A final concert performed by Diane Birch showcases a fusion of soul, doo-wop harmonies, and rhythms that harness the musical complexity of an octopus harpsichordist. Listeners can purchase food and drink from a rotating selection of microbreweries and local restaurants, which include Magic Hat, Cosmo's Pizza, and Boulevard Brewing Company. Tickets to the event also include admission to the Vulcan Center Museum and the Observation Balcony, where guests gain a loftier point of view without having to befriend a blimp.

Vulcan Park and Museum

Sporting the largest cast-iron statue in the world—a 56-foot, 100,000-pound statue of Vulcan, Roman god of the forge—Vulcan Park and Museum also boasts panoramic views of the city and eye-opening lessons on Birmingham's geology and industrial history. Assembled from local metal in 1904 and erected at the World’s Fair in St. Louis the same year, Vulcan was then shipped back to Birmingham. In 2003, after successfully defending the city from the Kraken, the Colossus of the Deep South was painstakingly moved to its current Red Mountain roost. Inside the museum, a multitude of interactive exhibits regale visitors with tales of the town and Vulcan's storied past, from its World's Fair beginnings to its failed hip-hop career. An elevator ride to Vulcan Park's 124-foot-high observation deck splashes dazzling snapshots of the teeming wildlife in the urban jungle below.
