Countdown to Yuri's Night 2014
On April 12, 1961, Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin embarked on the historic first manned space flight.  Every year Yuri's Night parties are held all around the world; it's like St. Patrick's Day for space. Now in its 7th year, Countdown to Yuri's Night (C2YN) offers an artistic spin on this high-science holiday by combining an art exhibition, a space-themed burlesque/variety show, band performances, and a dance party.

A 21+ event, Countdown to Yuri's Night, takes place Saturday, April 12, from 8pm to 2am, at Anacostia Arts Center (1231 Good Hope Road, SE). Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 day-of/door.  Visit for tickets, artist links, and announcements.
