Little Dragon, Sister Crayon @ The Natural History Museum 01/07/11
First Fridays is back at the Natural History Museum! This past friday, lucky ticket holders were treated to Little Dragon and Sister Crayon as the first bands of the 2011 Nostradamus Edition kickoff.
For those of you who can come early to these monthly events, we highly recommend the pre-concert tours and discussions, plus a gallery exploration between bands (and drinks). The museum is constantly reinventing itself, with new twists on old themes, and plenty of wonderful staff and volunteers to question about all things contained therein. This time around, we especially liked the bug pavilion adjacent to the gift shop. Plenty of creepy crawlies to admire and revere. Next time, we're going to hit up the gems.
Check out previous coverage of the First Fridays event here and here, and as always, remember to get your tickets early. Do you have a favorite part of the museum? Let us (and readers) know in the comments!
