Space case

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase October 16, 2007 11:22 AM

It's not often you see an astrophysicist celebrating his brand-new PhD by rocking out, which is why we recommend heading to the Burren tomorrow night to check out the Franklin Kite. Frontman Ryan Hickox, who studied black holes in faraway galaxies at Harvard, is leading his thoughtful indie-rock band in a free acoustic show tomorrow night at 9.

Next week Ryan will be starting as a postdoc at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge. But tomorrow, it's all about the party. Hickox (below left) promises it'll be a stellar night. And who are we not to believe him? He's the expert, after all.
