Highlights from this weeks events listings

Highlights from this weeks events listings

Thrum is analog ambient music with a pulse. Drums (John Allietta) and bass (Christine Ruotolo) lay down organic grooves. Guitars and effects from Lance Brenner (who, with Ruotolo, is two-thirds of power popsters The Naked Puritans) create hypnotic layers. Sit back, take in your favorite poison, talk with your friends, then ease yourself onto the dance floor. The party’s at R2, in the back of Rapture on the Downtown Mall. Free, 10pm. Tuesday, May 16.

UVA ethicist joins national stem cell research panel
Dr. Jonathan Moreno, who heads UVA’s Center for Biomedical Ethics and who has spoken out against the politicization of scientific research under Dubya’s regime, has been appointed to a new federal committee to review guidelines for human embryonic stem cell research. The committee’s 14 members will take a look at how existing voluntary research guidelines are being applied—a subject familiar to Moreno, as he co-chaired the panel that wrote them last year.
