Longtime Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart released a new solo album, RAMU (which featured a song with Animal Collective’s Avey Tare), last year, and he’s performing music from that album this month at NYC’s American Museum of Natural History. He’s doing a special performance called Mickey Hart Presents Musica Universalis at the museum on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14. Here’s more info from the museum’s website:

Join legendary Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart for a unique program at the Museum. The evening begins with a walk-through of the special exhibition Our Senses: An Immersive Experience featuring a curated soundscape based on Hart’s recently released album, RAMU. Then, join Hart in the Hayden Planetarium Dome for an electrifying live performance of Musica Universalis, created in collaboration with the Museum’s Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart. The show will be followed by a discussion with neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley and Our Senses Curator Rob DeSalle. Ticket holders will take home a signed statement and a copy of Hart’s album, RAMU.

Mickey adds, “This exhibit features a curated soundscape based on my album #RAMU. I’ll be performing live on the Beam in the Hayden Planetarium taking you on a musical and visual journey.” Tickets are on sale.

Later this year, Mickey and the rest of Dead & Company are touring, including two nights at NYC’s Citi Field in June, Lockn’ in August, and more.

In other news, there’s a new Dead compilation, The Best Of The Grateful Dead Live, out now on Rhino. Stream that, along with Mickey Hart’s Avey Tare collaboration from RAMU, below.
