The Lothars performing in a planetarium. What could be a more perfect match? The show was organized by members of the band Moon Patrol (who also played), and the band Lockgroove headlined the evening.

During and between the bands' sets, various films were projected above where the bands played. During The Lothars' set, they projected scenes from the Czech/French animated film Fantastic Planet, computer generated kaleidoscopic images, and of course lots of stars and constellations on the ceiling! The overall effect was excellent --- our music seems to fit really well as abstract film accompaniment. Look out for The Lothars national planetarium tour! Yeah, we wish....
