OMSI After Dark - Summer Concert Series
With Lost Lander and Blue Skies for Black Hearts
OMSI After Dark continues its summer concert series this week featuring Lost Lander and Blue Skies for Black Hearts. This OMSI After Dark theme is Chic Geeks: Fashion, Music, and the Science 1f8f of Style. Come and flaunt your thick-framed glasses and peg-legged little hipster jeans! Fashion forward gets a whole new meaning with interactive demos and activities including:
* Duct Tape Wallets: Is there anything duct tape can't do? Come make one of these practical and oh-so-stylish accessories.
* Gimme Distortion!: Ever wonder how a guitar pedal gives you that fuzzed out sound? Play some instruments, crank up the distortion and discover the secret!
* Paper Plate Speaker: Though they probably won't replace your home entertainment system, these little speakers can pack a punch, not to mention teach you something about electromagnets and sound while you build them.
* Oobleck Monster: See what curious forms a sub woofer can coax from Oobleck - the non-Newtonian fluid!
* What's the Frequency?: Do you know the range of frequencies the average human can hear? Test your ears and find out how they stack up.
* ChipTunes Music Show: Did you know that the Game Boy relegated to your closet is a versatile musical instrument? Have you ever considered replacing your flaky bass player with a Commodore 64? Watch local musicians repurpose obsolete video game and computer hardware to rock the Planetarium Hall.
Paul Mitchell the School, Portland: Get all glammed up and go strut your stuff!
