Programme for 29th Feb Lates

If you haven't partied in a neuroscience lab before, then now's your chance, at next week's Science Museum Lates, from 6.45–10pm. And it's the last one in Lab of Misfits current location… we're moving to a new space in the Science Museum in March.

The Lates theme at the Science Museum this month is Surgery. Here's what we've got lined up in the Lab of Misfits operating theatre:

We'll be kicking off the evening (from 8pm) with a dissection of the human voice on our amazing 77-speaker Soundwall by sonic artist Nye Parry ( and Mongolian overtone singer Michael Ormiston ( ‘The Exploded Voice' is a one-off live performance by the duo, in which Michael's voice is separated into pure sine waves, each emanating from a single loudspeaker and forming a vibrant and vivid backdrop to his singing.

Later, from 8.30–9.30, we'll switch genre completely when three-time world champion DJ Switch ( will be taking to the decks for a live set showcasing his mind-boggling turntable skills.

We're also delighted that eye think (, a lab interested in
 eye movements, cognition and language, is going to be running a live crowd experiment. RIght up our street. And if you're in need of a drink during our heady mash-up of science and revelry, our famous Brain Bar is on hand serving cocktails all night.

Find us on the first floor, near Cosmos and Culture, all night – entry to the Lates is free!
