The American Museum of Natural History's One Step Beyond series, which just had Dirty Projectors last month, is continuing on February 17 at Rose Center with DJ sets by Prefuse 73 and The Rapture. Tickets are on sale now.

It's The Rapture's last North American show/event before their Japan/Australia tour which kicks off later this month. All Rapture dates are listed below.

Prefuse 73 are one of many collaborators on the upcoming Flaming Lips collaborative Record Store Day release, which also includes Bon Iver, Erykah Badu, Nick Cave, Death Cab for Cutie, Yoko Ono, and many others.
