First Fridays

Tour (5:30 pm, 6:00pm, 6:30pm): Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral? with Kimball Garrett (Collection Manager, Ornithology), Kathy Omura (Collection Manager, Marine Biodiversity Center), and Emma Freeman (Curatorial Assistant, Marine Biodiversity Center)

Discussion (6:30pm): “Sense in the Swarm; Driving like a Locust Biomimicry in the Present and Future” with Dr. Janet Kübler, CSU Northridge
Dr. Janet Kübler, from the Biomimicry Guild’s Speakers Bureau, will show us how life is helping humans build a more beautiful, efficient and connected place in the biosphere. The presentation will cover what biomimicry is and isn’t, giving examples of current, developing and dream technology based on living systems including learning about communications systems from bees and fungi, safe transport from locusts and about holding things together from mollusks in the sea.

Performances (8:00 pm - 10:00 pm)
Performances in the Diorama Hall with Wild Nothing and Abe Vigoda
Traveling along their US tour, Wild Nothing and Los Angeles' post punkers, Abe Vigoda, will be stopping at the Museum. Wild Nothing is the solo project of Virginia born Jack Tatum, whose music is the product of an unhealthy obsession with nostalgia. Equal parts teenage wasteland and inexplicable regret, his songs are the kind that could only be made by the young at heart. Unlike the current herd of one-man bedroom bands, Tatum creates complex textural environments that aim for something higher, like the warped interpretations of Johnny Marr’s guitar work and The Cure’s careful synth arrangements. Dreamy, catchy, and intriguing.  Abe Vigoda will be bringing their cold wave and minimal wave inspired sounds that collide UK dreampop and goth. As the their recent album "Crush" bears testament, imagine melding the sounds that has both the infatuation kind of love and the act of destroying something...

DJs (5:30 pm - 10:00 pm)
Resident DJ Anthony Valadez and special guest, Chuck P
KCRW DJs Anthony Valadez and Chuck P. join us in the lounge where you can get your groove on and enjoy the dioramas of the African Mammal Hall.
