VERY COOL NIGHTS AT THE MUSEUM.

Byline: - Daily News

Having recently reinvented its mission to make natural history more interesting and accessible with the ultracool ``L.A: light/motion/dreams'' exhibit, the Museum of Natural History of Los Angeles County has added a new wrinkle with an eclectic series of performances celebrating Los Angeles' artistic scene.

Tonight at 8, the second of four LA Live! events aims - in the museum's words - ``to create the ultimate musical metaphor'' for the city with KCRW DJ Jason Bentley playing host to a group of local aural artists, including Cut Chemist, the Supernova String Quartet, Stephen Dewey, producer of ``The Matrix'' soundtrack and the inimitable king of ``radio noir'' - Joe Frank.

The third event of the series, on June 5, features the Lula Washington Dance Theater premiering a new production. Tom Schnabel, host of KCRW's ``Cafe LA,'' follows by spinning the sounds of city as guests are invited to dance in the museum's grand foyer.

On June 19, it's a night of comedy with humorist Sandra Tsing Loh and Culture Clash, which will perform scenes from its recent hit ``Chavez Ravine.'' Also, the Firesign Theatre will present a collage of their classic Los Angeles humor.

Tickets for each show are $15, and include a preview of the exhibit beginning at 6 p.m. They are available online at www.ticketweb.com or by phone at (866) 468-3399. The museum is at 900 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles. Information: (213) 763-DINO or www.nhm.org.
