Secret Science Club - The Bell House
What happens to the human body when an astronaut blasts into orbit? Chris Mason wanted to know down to the molecular level. So he studied a pair of twins?one earthbound and one bound for space. In 2015, astronaut Scott Kelly spent 11 months on the International Space Station, while his identical brother Mark Kelly hung out on Earth. As part of the NASA Twins Study, Dr. Mason led the research comparing the twins' "omics" (gene expression, transcriptome, metagenome, and more)?before and after the long spaceflight. At the next Secret Science Club, Chris Mason discusses the results of the NASA Twins Study, as well as how future research and technologies will be used to monitor, protect, and potentially repair astronauts' cells and bodies during, and after, long space missions?to the ISS, Mars, and beyond.

Dr. Dog, (Sandy) Alex G - Brooklyn Steel
"I feel like I'm in a totally new band right now," says Dr. Dog guitarist/singer Scott McMicken. It's a bold declaration considering he's been co-fronting the beloved indie outfit for a decade-and-a-half, but it cuts straight to the heart of the intense and transformative experience behind the group's brilliant new album, 'Critical Equation.' The most infectious and adventurous collection Dr. Dog has laid to tape yet, the record was born from a journey of doubt and discovery, a heavy, sometimes painful reckoning that ultimately brought the band closer together with more strength and clarity than ever before. Call it an existential awakening, call it a dark night of the soul, whatever it was, it fueled one of the most fertile creative periods in the group's history and forced them to confront that timeless question: what do we really want? "We'd been touring and making records for our entire adult lives, and I think we just needed to take a step back," reflects bassist/singer Toby Leaman, who splits fronting and songwriting duties with McMicken. "It was important for all of us to figure out if we were actually doing what we wanted to be doing, or if we were just letting momentum... (read more)

Ninja Sex Party - Brooklyn Bowl
Comedy band Ninja Sex Party has but one goal: To take your body sweetly by the hand and then rock its face off with amazing music. The band's lead singer, DannySexbang, is tender yet firm, sensual yet masculine, and super horny yet not creepy about it. Danny is accompanied on keyboards by his best friend and roommate Ninja Brian, the ultimate martial arts champion/electronic music enthusiast. Together, they sing songs about love, dinosaurs, relationships, mythical creatures, seduction, and respect. You will love this band, because if you don't, it's your ass on the line.
Southern Culture on the Skids - Brooklyn Bowl
Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since since they formed in Chapel Hill, NC in 1983. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. It's a musical gumbo Miller calls, "Americana from the wrong side of the tracks." The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls "a hell raising rock and roll party." In 2014 the band was honored by the Southern Folk Life Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibition featuring their music and cultural contributions. The flame-adorned La-Z-Boy from the cover of their Plastic Seat Sweat LP now resides at UNC-CH!
