Yuri's Night
When Yuri Gagarin became the first man to go into space, I bet he didn't know that he'd be coming up with a great reason for people to party all over the world. Granted, without him going into space, we wouldn't be able to watch season 4 of Battlestar Galactica via satellite dish, have a need to sample freeze dried ice cream, or put the US flag on the hunk of rock known as the Moon, so why not celebrate it at Yuri's Night? Since 2001, people all over the world have been celebrating Yuri's night, and in the Bay Area, they're doing it right. Musical artists such as Amon Tobin, John Tejada, [a]pendics.shuffle, Lusine and Mozaic will be performing, fusion performance group Capacitor will be giving a dance and acrobatic show, aerial demonstrations will be done with Yuri Gagarin-era aircraft, NASA research robots will be showing their stuff, the Flaming Lotus girls will be unveiling their newest fire sculpture and NASA scientists will be blowing your mind. Whatever your artistic and scientific discipline, Yuri's night is a once-a-year event to stimulate your senses and make you wonder what else is out there. Date: Saturday, 4/12, Time: 2pm-2am, Place: NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Cover: $40 advance, $50 door link More Info (JV8)


Tender Ground
Have you ever wondered why dance theater was only limited to dancers on a stage? It appears that Wide Blue Yonder Dance Company had been pondering the same question, and have decided to add an aerial dimension to dance theater. Tender Ground, an evening of three aerial theater pieces, premieres this weekend at CounterPULSE. Exploring the topics of homelessness, mental health, and aging in a humorous yet poignant manner, Tender Ground's aerial theater performance has been described as "allowing emotional expressions in ways untapped until now. The flat wooden stage will never be the same again." Date: Friday-Saturday, 4/11-4/12, Time: 8pm, Place: CounterPULSE, 1310 Mission St, Cover:  $15 advance, link More Info (JV8)


Veni Vidi Vici
Every month the art and culture magazine, Juxtapose, celebrates their issue release with a party full of new art from local artists and up-and-coming musical acts. This month features rapper/DJ Pase Rock, whose humorous imagination led to singles like "Lindsay Lohan's Revenge" and "Sexy MF." In room two, Pnuma will be performing a very special live P.A. set. The trio uses their jazz and classical training to create beat-driven, jammin' electronic compositions with funk, hip hop, and drum 'n' bass influences. According to JamBase, "They've become one of the most talked about young bands in the country." In room three, local reggae/hip-hop DJ Irie Dole from Jah Shelter Warrior Hi-fi, the award winning California sound system that makes sure we can go out to reggae parties almost every day of the month. Come to party, see great art, and conquer the dancefloor with some hot moves! Date: Saturday, 4/12, Time: 9pm-4am, Place: Club Six, Cover: $10 b4 11pm, $15 after, link More Info (EB)
