Brightest Young Things (BYT), the gurus of events and culture in D.C., are hosting a Freaks & Greeks National Geographic After Hours party this Friday.
The National Geographic Museum recently announced their special exhibit, “The Greeks: Agamemnon to Alexander The Great,” which will be on display June 1 to October 10. What better way to celebrate the cultural exhibit than to host a party, playing on Judd Apatow’s cult classic, with Dan Deacon and other greats DJing?
DJ sets include Dan Deacon, DJ Ecotone, French Horn Rebellion, DJ MadScience, DJ Smudge, Jezzibelle Jaxknife, Pu$$y Noir and Summer Camp. As you’re listening to music, walk around and make your own Greek goddess crown, stroll through the Nat Geo courtyard and learn more about why BYT is advertising “lasers” at the event.
Of course, this party is being thrown in the name of science and history. So, there will be “lightning talks” from some of the best including paleoanthropologist Ella Al-Shamahi, marine ecologist Clare Fieseler and ecologist Kevin McLean.
While you’re there, check out the other fascinating National Geographic exhibits currently on display, including one on the Yellowstone ecosystem, and a 3D movie called Pandas. Because, why not?
National Geographic Museum, Sept. 9, 8 p.m. to midnight, $25 regular admission ticket. Discount with code: MakeAlexanderGreatAgain
