Tuesday, April 12, 2011 marks 50 years of human spaceflight and we’re celebrating Yuri’s Night at Cielo. Come celebrate 50 years of space exploration and learn whether a Space Shuttle will come to live at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum! Join Curator of the Intrepid Eric Boehm, bestselling author Howard Bloom, and a glittering constellation of other arts and technology luminaries for a fabulous night of music, dancing, drinks, games, fantastic costumes, and space-themed giveaways. Club Cielo’s futuristic lighting, sparkling décor, and luscious soundsystem will make you glad to be out on a Tuesday night!

Our star performers include The Kin, two brothers who lend their Australian voices to Shakerleg’s hands-on drumming, giving their melodic alternative music an organic quality. They will be followed by Peter Munch, a.k.a. The Munk Machine, who will be spinning his own brand of warm techno he calls Soultech. More importantly, he’ll also be unveiling his soon-to-be-famous invention which will change the world of DJing as we know it. Finally, Brigadier Tego will be launching the night with world rhythm for this out-of-world event. 

Throughout the event, clothing designer Matthieu Boardman’s latex fiber-optic designs will light up the night as the models showcase the future of fashion. From his work as a biomedical engineer assisting with surgical implants of cardiac devices, to his volunteer work in sculpture and design contributing to the advancement of techniques in local arts collectives, Matthieu has successfully fused his love of art and science into wearable fashion.

While taking its name from an accomplishment of the past, Yuri’s Night provides a venue where a new generation can network, dream, and create plans for the future. There will be more than enough entertainment to engage patrons and spark their interest in the next frontier.
