Last week, the Natural History Museum in Exposition Park continued its monthly First Fridays program with a sold-out show of music by The Phatal DJ and Chico Sonido in the African Mammal Hall and performances by the New Zealand-based The Ruby Suns and Australians Wolfmother in the North American Hall.

Among the highlights of Wolfmother's energetic hour-long set was the debut of "California Queen" off their forthcoming sophomore album Cosmic Egg, and the encore of "Joker & the Thief," replete with frontman Andrew Stockdale in a one-piece joker outfit.
