The Penn Museum is putting a new spin on its Summer Nights music series, starting Wednesday, June 26.

On select Wednesday evenings this summer, the 21-plus crowd is invited to spend happy hour in the museum's outdoor courtyard, while listening to a curated playlist by a local celeb.

First up is Gritty. The mascot's 40-song Memorial Day weekend playlist he made to kick off summer will be played. The eclectic mix includes songs from Celine Dion, ABBA and "Spongebob Squarepants."
