Thursday, 7 November – 19:00-23:00

Evening at "Experience Music Project"

Ride the Monorail to this museum and you are in for something very different! The museum was designed by world-renowned architect Frank O. Gehry and is located at the base of the Space Needle. Both the building's architecture and its unparalleled collection of music-related artifacts have made EMP a very popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

    Crossroads, the main exhibit area, combines rare artifacts with imagery and multimedia to recount stores that span a century of American popular music. The exhibit pays tribute to many Northwest artists and other musicians from around the country, the inspiring artistry of Jimi Hendrix, the development of the electric guitar and more. Musicial revolutions from jazz and blues to the birth of rock n' roll and the hip-hop explosion are explored, providing fresh insight into the diverse expressions of musical creativity.

    The Sound Lab will be open for those who enjoy playing, performing and moving to music. Whether a novice or professional musician, you can explore your creative potential as you perform to a virtual concert audience or engage with interactive instruments.

    The Sky Church will open its doors for OOPSLA guests who want to dance. Light refreshments will be available. For a sneak peak of EMP, visit http://www.emplive.com.
