July 16, 2012 | Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience at the Museum of Science

We’ve spent plenty of ponderous nights under a starry sky, contemplating our place in the universe (or maybe just wondering whether that fried chicken pilfered from the office fridge was still edible). But sometimes, the mysteries of the cosmos just aren’t enough to blow our minds. So we thank Boston rock quintet Ghosts of Jupiter for shaking up our solar system with Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience. Now playing at the Charles Hayden Planetarium in the Museum of Science (1 Science Park, Boston, 617.723.2500), this new show pairs the band’s booming drums, screaming guitars, and chilly vocal melodies with a retina-popping video and light show. For tickets ($10) to this evening’s 5:30 p.m. show and the complete schedule, check out mos.org.
