-----> East Bay rapper Caleborate, one of Complex’s Best New Musicians in 2016, kicks off the night with tracks from his highly-buzzed-about latest album, 1993. Oakland-based all-female all-vinyl club B-Side Brujas will bring all the vibes with old-school soul and funky R&B throwbacks throughout the night.

-----> Explore a colorful and interactive art installation called Zoa created by frequent Burning Man collaborator Martin Taylor and his collective Chromaforms in the West Garden.

-----> Keep your senses stimulated between sets with VR experiences by Dream Logic and Vision Quest, which offer new perspectives on the natural world—and your own.

-----> Take a live Tour of the Universe or explore the immersive and trippy art and music experience that is Vortex 2.0 in the Morrison Planetarium.

-----> Get hands-on with science-inspired crafts and creativity workshops with Paint Pens Collective, spruce up your record collection by visiting Amoeba Records’ pop-up shop, and collect all of San Franpsycho’s “one-night-only” screen printed shirts designed just for NightLife LIVE.

ABOUT NIGHTLIFE LIVE

NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences, the museum’s weekly Thursday night party for science-curious adults 21+, launches its fourth annual NightLife LIVE summer music series. This year’s headliners include Com Truise, Classixx, and Kevin Morby along with supporting acts The Seshen, Caleborate, SUMif and Tanukichan. In true NightLife style, SF’s top DJs will keep the party going throughout the museum, including rotating sets by Chulita Vinyl Club, B-Side Brujas, and Sweater Funk.

This year’s NightLife LIVE events will take place on July 12th, August 9th, September 13th, and October 11th, in addition to the Academy’s regular NightLife events held every week. Partnering with Bay Area music promoters Noise Pop, Outside Lands, and Treasure Island Music Festival, NightLife LIVE pairs emerging bands and musicians with cutting-edge visual artists in an immersive intersection of science, music, and art. The only museum in the world to combine an aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum, and living rainforest, live performances on an outdoor stage transform the Academy into one of San Francisco’s most unique live music venues in the heart of Golden Gate Park.
