NightLife Live 2017 San Francisco

Electric Guest
Eectric Guest

Kick off your Outside Lands weekend with a very special edition of NightLife Live at California Academy of Sciences. On Thursday, August 10th, the summer music series returns with two stellar music acts, art installations, craft projects, designer cocktails, virtual reality experiences, and more!

Start the night with local phenoms The She's with their ‘60s pop and surf rock-inspired harmonies and jangly guitars, and then catch the upbeat electronic R&B headliner Electric Guest. In between sets, listen to the sonic artistry of DJ KingMost and check out the art installations in the West Garden from Tyler Dean Harrison, Quarso, and Luminous Waveforms. Also make sure you browse used vinyl at the Amoeba Music pop-up shop! We'll be bringing loads of quality used vinyl so prepare to go crate digging.

San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences continues to reinvent Thursday nights with their NightLife LIVE summer music series. Inspired by science and powered by sound, the Academy transforms itself into a 21+ oasis of music and art one night a month.

Grimes aka Claire Boucher stopped by Amoeba to pick up a few records and DVDs, and her choices aren’t necessarily what you’d expect. No K-pop and light on obscure electronica (save for Balam Acab’s Wander/Wonder), Boucher instead opted for guilty pleasures — a couple of Blink-182 and Justin Bieber DVDs, a T.A.T.U. record, that sort of thing. Having watched this thing a couple of times now, I’m most taken with Boucher’s ease and candor as she talks about really uncool music many of us secretly like.
