It's not often that you get to hear great science fiction TV scores given the full orchestral treatment, but this Saturday in San Pedro, California, you'll get your chance. Plus you can meet a legend in the scifi music business, Stu Philips, who has worked on everything from Buck Rogers to Battlestar Galactica.

Darth Mojo says:

To help celebrate composer Stu Philips' upcoming 80th birthday, Southern California's most lavish movie palace, the Warner Grand, is throwing a party! Great music is a must if you really want to make a party swing, so the theater's house band will be busting out extended suites from some of Stu's most popular work, including the scores of Knight Rider, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and Battlestar Galactica.

In this case, the "house band" is the Golden State Pops Orchestra, and the band leader will be none other than Mr. Philips himself!

Want an amazing evening of musical geekery?
