Jared adds Sputnik to the stage backdrop
Over thirteen visual artists from the Art Whino stable exhibit art that celebrates, reflects, and imagines space, from hard-core science to the low-brow culture.
The band, Mr. Moccasin, will begin at 9 pm. With 7-members and a lead singer who sings in Russian and English, Mr. Moccasin performs world music-inspired post-punk and combines drastic chord changes, big riffs, Eastern-tinged violin, cello, and mandolin.
Taking the stage for two sets (one at 10:30 and the next at midnight) is a Spacey Burlesque Revue, hosted by the enigmatic Master Uranus (with the help of Gary Gutter-Space Janitor) and starring Miss Saturn. New York based Saturn performs with up to 40 orbiting rings (hula hoops)! Joining Miss Saturn in the burlesque line-up is L’il Dutch, a DC-based burlesque artist rocketing to stardom. The next constellation of stars is the heavenly bodies of Gilded Lily Burlesque.
On board throughout the night will be DJ Red Poncho Space Bear, spinning inter-stellar tunes that will bounce your moonwalk. Also come prepared for science fiction’s favorite theatre company, Landless Theatre, and excerpts from their production of “Space Battles, The Musical.”

More About Yuri’s Night:
April 12, 1961 Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin embarked on the historic first manned space flight. Twenty years later on 12 April 1981, the US launched the first space shuttle flight. We think that’s something worth celebrating! Every year on April 12th Yuri’s Night parties are held all around the world; it’s like the St. Patrick’s Day or Cinco de Mayo for space. Visit http://www.yurisnight.net for a list of worldwide parties.
