Cryology: It’s not the study of what makes you cry (answer: Sarah McLaughlin for SPCA, wild animals reuniting with previous owners), it’s actually the study of freezing, and we’re delving into it this Friday Night at HMNS’ second LaB 5555.

Join HMNS Educational Program Coordinator Carolyn Leap in the Grand Hall from 8 to 9 p.m. as she does live demonstrations with liquid nitrogen and explains the processes that cause matter to rearrange itself and freeze. Get here early for these scintillating science demonstrations AND free mini cups of Blue Bell ice cream!

LaB 5555 | Cryology

Fill up on the best local food truck fare from H-town StrEATS, Happy Endings, Coreanos and Melange Creperie and get some liquid courage from one of our City Kitchen cash bars before joining in the eccentric and electric performance of Vockah Redu.

Vockah Redu creates dance-ready beats that adhere to the New Orleans-born “bounce” genre of hip hop. Their animated, elaborate live performances incorporate street art and dance and dare the crowd not to shake it.

Watch Vockah Redu perform below:
