These Stars Don't Rock 

Don't wander into Gottlieb Planetarium at Union Station (30 West Pershing Road) expecting a retro-tastic rendition of Dark Side of the Moon set to a laser light show. Rather than classic rock with cheesy special effects, the interdisciplinary science and arts team Dark Matter provides audiences with an educational experience that merges the analytical with the creative, through the efforts of composers, a clarinetist, a flutist and a scientist. While the musicians play, an astronomer guides the audience on a journey through the solar system. See performances of Orbit at 7 and 9 p.m. today and Saturday. Seating is limited, and reservations are strongly encouraged. Tickets cost $15 and are available online or through the Union Station box office at 816-460-2020. For more details, see darkmatterkc.com.— Jill Muir


Fri., Feb. 4, 7 & 9 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 5, 7 & 9 p.m., 2011
