Planetarium: stud1nt and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe

  • ⇢ THE EVENING Every Thursday evening, we clear the floor between our speakers and invite folks over for a hi-fi listening session. Our resident selectors and special guests play everything from ambient and electronic music to pre-war blues and psychedelic rock, and often live performances are woven throughout. Feel free to bring pillows, blankets, sleeping bags — whatever you like to get comfortable. Also, we've found the night works best when everyone keeps their voice down, so please remain silent inside the main speaker area. Outside of that space, be sure to speak quietly enough that only the person you’re talking to can hear you. We look forward to getting lost in music with you. ⇢⇢ THE LINEUP At this edition, Planetarium resident Stud1nt is joined by multi-instrumentalist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. A member of Chicago math-rock band 90 Day Men, Robert has focused on his solo work, performed mostly under the moniker Lichens, since the band went on hiatus in the mid 2000s. His improvisational compositions, rooted in modular synthesis and vocal experimentation, are haunting, otherworldly and thoroughly entrancing. He’ll be casting his musical spells live throughout the evening. ⇢⇢⇢ RSVP RSVP for reduced cover at nowadays.nyc/rsvp ⇢⇢⇢⇢ SAFER SPACE In an effort to create a space where all people feel safe, we don’t allow any of these things within our walls or in our back yard: Violence Non-Consensual Touching Racist, Homophobic, Transphobic, Sexist or Other Discriminatory Language Leering If someone says or does anything to make you feel uncomfortable while you’re here, let us know.
