July Summer Fun Checklist for Kids Item: Attend ArcAttack at Long Center
Seen on America’s Got Talent, ArcAttack is a performance art group that specializes in playing music through a combination of homemade, high-tech instruments and more traditional instruments such as guitar and bass.
Part rock concert, part science experiment, the creators of ArcAttack unveil the science behind the spectacle. Combining their love of music with science, the group invites the audience to explore concepts such as electricity, voltage and current, magnetism, robotics and lightning through a show that’s both entertaining and interactive.
The audience is engaged from start to finish as the group’s trusty, completely automated robot drummer King Beat introduces the audience to the show. The show features their signature Tesla coils, as members of the group literally walk through lightning, then invite members of the audience on stage to take part in a special faraday cage dance off!
When: Friday, July 24th at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Long Center for Performing Arts, 701 W. Riverside Drive, Austin
