April 12th is the 40th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human in orbit, and, by strange coincidence, the 20th anniversary of the first space shuttle launch.
To celebrate, I (and a bunch of other people) are planning a HUGE space-party ("Yuri's Night") for April 12. This party is one of 44 world-wide parties in 24 countries... see
<http://www.yurisnight.net/>www.yurisnight.net for details. Our aim is to bring space to people in a new way- through the Hollywood dance scene.
Our Los Angeles event will be the biggest celebration in the US. It’s at the legendary Hollywood Palace, just across from the Capital Records Building, just above Hollywood and Vine. Some of the biggest DJs in the world will be playing, including D:Fuse, the American tour partner of Paul Oakenfold; DJ Mars, the trance prodigy from San Francisco; as well local favorites like Liza Richardson from KCRW and Tony Watson from Wax Records.
There will also be space heroes, Hollywood celebrities, footage from other parties around the world, the lunar rover from "From the Earth to the Moon" , and the coolest spacesuit-clad go-go dancers you have ever seen!
All proceeds from this event go to space-related charities: Permission to Dream gives telescopes to inner-city kids, and Under African Skies sends space educators to African schools.
Tickets are easy to get: buy online at la.yurisnight.net, or at www.stickytickets.com. Or you can call Sticky Tickets at 1.800.464.2275. If you buy before April 1, tickets are only 10$.
I really hope you can come (and bring other people too)!!! We’ve been working hard on this for months and it should truly be a once-in-lifetime, amazingly-fun experience, all for some really great causes.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions . . .. you can also check out our websites at: la.yurisnight.net for info on our LA event, including directions to the Palace, T-shirt sales, and ticket details; see <http://www.yurisnight.net>www.yurisnight.net, for info on the global event and the ideas behind it all.
And please forward this on if you know someone who might also be interested.
See you April 12!!!
