Each month AMNH presents a different DJ performing in the Museum’s Rose Center for Earth and Space. Guests can also take a walk up the Cosmic Pathway to the Hayden Big Bang Theater where acclaimed actor Liam Neeson narrates a dynamic flight through the virtual universe based on an accurate cosmic atlas. 

Beer and wine will be served at a cash bar. Advance purchase of tickets is recommended to guarantee entry.

Toro Y Moi (DJ Set)

Toro y Moi

Born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, Chaz Bear (formerly Bundick) began his musical career playing in punk and indie rock bands in his early teenage years. He has been performing as Toro y Moi since 2001 and released his debut album, Causers of This, in early 2010. Since than he has released many more, including the most recent Boo Boo which was released in July 2017 by Carpark Records.

Nathaniel Jay (Support)

Nathaniel Jay

Nathaniel Jay is the owner and operator of record label Love Notes from Brooklyn, which has launched the careers of upstarts like Tape Hiss, released music from legends like Casey Tucker, and also given us records from modern stars like Octo Octa. The music is best described as emotionally wrought, yet dance floor friendly, and, interestingly, each record has its own unique “love note,” authored by Jay himself. His love notes can also be found each month in the NYC dance music fanzine Love Injection. He’s been DJing since the late ’90s, collecting records for even longer than that, and his sets feature strictly vinyl culled from his impressive collection.

Working Women (opener)

 

working women

“Working Women is a project rooted in elaboration, uncertainty, and persistence. We believe that all who identify as women are working women. This music is for them.”
