Starset, a rock band from Columbus, Ohio, that plays science- and space-themed music in planetariums, will perform at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum’s Charles and Helen Reichert Planetarium on Thursday, June 25, 2015, at 8:00 p.m.
All tickets $20, on-line or at the door.
Dustin Bates, the former lead singer with the group Downplay, formed Starset in 2013. He describes their debut album Transmissions as the “sonic interzone where fact, science and speculation collide.” A singer, songwriter and accomplished musician, Bates also boasts some serious scientific credentials. A Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering from Ohio University, Bates has done research for the U.S. Air Force and taught at the International Space University.
Over the past year Starset produced two hit singles and toured throughout the United States and Europe. Their third single, Halo, is currently climbing the rock charts.
