One Step Beyond continues its fourth season at the American Museum of Natural History. During this ongoing party series, guests can dance in the Museum’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Hall of the Universe to the sounds of the biggest names in techno, electronica, hip-hop, and indie rock.
Guests can also enjoy a complimentary screening of one of the breathtaking Hayden Planetarium Space Shows. April’s feature is Journey to the Stars, narrated by Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg. Journey to the Stars launches visitors through time and space to experience the life and death of the stars in our night sky. A beer and wine bar keeps the party going. Each ticket also includes one pass to the Museum for future use.
Chromeo (DJ set), headline
P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) and Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) met in high school in the mid-1990s when Macklovitch joined Gemayel's band. They signed as Chromeo in 2001 and started creating tracks in 2002. After their debut album, “She's in Control,” released in 2004, DJs began playing their songs all over the world. Chromeo has performed in festivals around the world such as Glastonbury, Reading, and Leeds in the UK; Fujirock in Japan; Iceland Airwaves in Iceland; Pemberton Music Festival in Canada; and Coachella, Bonnaroo, Rothbury Festival, and Lollapalooza in the United States.
Telephoned began in Brooklyn when DJ/producer Sammy Bananas (Fool's Gold) and singer/party starter Maggie Horn (Good Peoples) decided to record their own version of T-Pain's “Can't Believe It.” After Sammy and Maggie’s “Can’t Believe It” quickly became a DJ favorite, they decided to keep recording as a team, naming themselves after the kid’s game of Telephone.
