Dinosaurs Rock!

Posted in Uncategorized by rssmith218 on March 21, 2011

Dinosaurs and rock music mixed nicely at the Australian Museum’s Jurassic Lounge this past Tuesday evening.

I wasn’t chased by a dinosaur like the poor fellow above, but I did manage to rock out with some dinosaurs. The below photo, taken from the Jurassic Lounge Flickr photostream, shows the spectacle that awaited us at the museum.

Every Tuesday night of the summer, the Australian Museum is transfomed into an after-hours party. We enjoyed the museum exhibits with a drink in hand, and happily wandered among dinosaurs and stuffed Australian animals (both past and present), while listening to “Sydney’s hottest artists, performers and DJs”. Thanks to Heather for the following photos.

The most entertaining bit was probably the silent disco, where we all jammed quietly to music wired through individual headsets.

Perhaps the oddest thing we encountered at the museum was this body-painter who was painting a naked woman to become part of this scene. Strange, eh?

The Jurassic Lounge provided  an eclectic, trendy, and at times, odd mix of people, music, and art. But what else can you expect out of a summer night in Sydney? Dinosaurs, nudity, and silent disco- the Australian Museum delivered it all!

    Looks like fun- you didn’t volunteer to be painted?
