If your parents had long hair and blissful smiles in their photos from the early Seventies, they probably went to at least one laser light show. The eye-popping, brain-searing experience was a rite of passage when just about everyone was turning on, tuning in, and dropping out. The Miami Museum of Science and Planetarium has been putting on shows since the mid-Seventies. Just as the drugs have become more potent over the years, so have the experience-enhancing special effects. Technology has improved, and weve upgraded quite a bit over the years, says laser operations manager Mark Bennett. He refrains from labeling the event as a hippie thing. Ive seen my fair share of hippies here over the years, but the crowd today cant be stereotyped. We get a broad spectrum of music lovers. Ive even seen grandparents with their grandchildren at the midnight Zeppelin show, he laughs. Feed your head tonight with Pink Floyds Echoes at 9:00 p.m. and The Doors at 10:00. Admission costs seven dollars. Call 305-646-4200, or visit www.miamisci.org.
