British pop band Stornoway to play at Peabody Great Hall of Dinosaurs

Stornoway, the British indie pop quartet whose music Venus calls "effortlessly captivating," returns to the Peabody from an international tour for the opening of "Invasion of the Bloodsuckers: Bedbugs and Beyond." 

They will debut an acoustic pop tune about those dreaded little creatures as well as play songs from their hit album Beachcombers Windowsill.

 

Invasion of the Bloodsuckers: Bedbugs and Beyond is an interactive exhibition about pests that feed on humans—bedbugs, fleas, lice, ticks and mosquitoes—featuring live colonies of bedbugs and mosquitoes, giant models, and film footage of blood feeding. The exhibition explores the biology and habitats of these bloodsucking arthropods, including where and how they live, how to deal with them, and how to tell them apart from lookalikes. Opening day is Saturday, May 28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

Stornoway and the exhibition are free with Yale I.D., museum membership, or admission of $5-$9.  Children under 3 are also free.
