We are halfway through the Natural History Museum’s 2012 First Fridays series, presented by KCRW, and below is an update on what you have to look forward to as well as some photos of the festivities thus far from Photographer Jeremiah Garcia.
These shows are always a blast and April’s event is actually taking place THIS Friday, March 30 (to avoid Good Friday) and it’s one you won’t want to miss — with Matthew Dear!
Advance tickets are sold out, but they always have some available at the door.
