KCRW will be presenting the First Fridays series at the Natural History Museum for the 4th year in a row in 2013. It’s a big year for NHM as they are celebrating their 100-year anniversary! A little music, a little science and some HUGE dinosaurs. That’s why this series rules!
Starting in January, the museum doors will stay open until 10pm once a month for this all ages event.
LA’s own Lord Huron kicks things off January 4, 2013. Their full length debut is full of evocative, majestic songs inspired by nature so I can’t imagine a better fit! Local trio Wildcat! Wildcat! will open the show with a set of indie electro pop.
Advance tickets often sell out fast. They are go on sale to Natural History Museum members on November 30 and to the public on December 3 (both at 10am). Get tickets here.
Also, there are always a limited number of tickets available at the door.
