NightLife LIVE, our summer music series, kicks off on the Academy’s outdoor stage with a night of lo-fi freaky psychedelic pop from New Zealand’s weird and whimsical Connan Mockasin. L.A.’s Morgan Delt opens the evening with a sunny dose of West Coast psychedelia-tinged ‘60s pop.

------>  Explore art installations all around and outside the building, including trippy work by Santiago Insignares and Camilla Valdez, plus a “zome” dome by Zomadic.

------> Keep your senses stimulated between sets with VR experiences by Dream Logic, helping you see the natural world in a whole new way.

------> Get hands-on with nature-inspired crafts by Julia Jane Moore and workshops with Paint Pens Collective. Plus, spruce up your record collection and your closet with pop-up shops from Amoeba Records and San Franpsycho.

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 Connan Mockasin, Electric Guest, Ryan Hemsworth,  along with supporting acts Morgan Delt, The She’s, Qrion, and Mild High Club.

In true NightLife style, SF’s top DJs will keep the party going throughout the museum, including rotating sets by King Most, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Popscene DJs Omar and Aaron Axelsen.

This year’s NightLife LIVE events will take place on July 13, August 10, September 14, and October 12, in addition to the Academy’s regular NightLife events held every week. Partnering with Bay Area music promoters Noise Pop, Outside Lands, and Popscene, 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.
