During this monthly party, enjoy drinks and dancing in the Museum’s Rose Center for Earth and Space. Take a walk up the Cosmic Pathway to the Hayden Big Bang Theater and look down into a giant concave screen, where acclaimed actor Liam Neeson narrates a dynamic flight through the virtual universe based on an accurate cosmic atlas.
DJ Questlove (DJ set), headliner
Grammy Award-winning Questlove (Ahmir Khalib Thompson), is the drummer for the well-known hip-hop band The Roots, currently the house band on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Along with being the musical director of the “Tonight Show,” Questlove is a well-recognized DJ known for his massive record collection. The Philadelphia-born musician’s first performance was playing bongos on stage with his parents at Radio City Music Hall when he was 13 years old—because his parents didn’t trust babysitters. His memoir, Mo’ Meta Blues, hit bookshelves in June 2013, and his follow-up publication Soul Train: The Music, Dance, and Style of a Generation, was released in October 2013.
DJ Neil Armstrong, support
New York City native DJ Neil Armstrong turned his love of music and hip-hop culture into a career that has allowed him to play music all over the world. Neil originally gained notoriety for his mix tape projects, showcasing his DJ skills, which generated considerable press and leading to a spot as Jay-Z’s tour DJ from 2008 until 2010, traveling around North America. Since then, he has DJ’d around the world including a performance at President Obama’s inauguration.
Matthew Law, opening DJ
From an early age, Philadelphia-born Matthew Law (Matthew Fishman-Dickerson) was exposed to a variety of musical styles through his theater-aficionado parents. Law has toured extensively throughout the United States, and, in 2013, he was voted Northeast Champion of the Red Bull Thre3Style competition. He has also appeared on the Oddball Comedy Tour and produces his own events called PHSH TANK and FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
