NightLife Live, Men I Trust

San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences celebrates their sixth annual NightLife LIVE summerMen I Trust music series. 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, living rainforest, and live performances on an outdoor stage transforms the Academy into one of SF’s most unique live music venues in the heart of Golden Gate Park.

The series kicks off on Thursday, July 11th with a night of laid-back groovy indie pop from Men I Trust and Mk.gee. Fresh off their Coachella debut, Montreal trio Men I Trust headlines, featuring dream-pop perfect vocals by Emma Proulx and a funky and “insatiable groove” (Ones to Watch). Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and California transplant mk.gee (pronounced McGee) opens, bringing his standout funk-inspired indie rock. He also carries a stamp of approval by Frank Ocean, who featured a mk.gee track on his blonded RADIO show last December.

Additionally, NightLife LIVE features immersive light shows and mind-bending projections by ALL OF IT NOW, VR experiences by Vision Quest, and they are introducing their first artist-in-residency -- Los Angeles-based artist Maggie West. NightLife LIVE also features hands-on, science-inspired crafts and creativity workshops with Paint Pens Collective, local vendors, and special “one-night-only” custom designs with screen printing by San Franpsycho.
