Nightlife at the Academy of Sciences has explored topics from the ocean floor to outer space, but next Thursday takes a novel look at something much more prevalent in our daily lives—independent music.
This Thursday, July 3, the Cal Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park and Noise Pop (the brains behind Treasure Island Music Fest) will offer up a host of independently-minded musical activities. You’ll be able to build the perfect mixtape with the SF Mixtape Society, check out art by the Bay Area’s greatest concert poster designers, and browse LPs from local indie labels, including Father/Daughter, Tricycle, Polyvinyl, Slumberland and more, thanks to a Bay Area Record Fair pop-up.
In addition, as always, Nightlife will feature some live performances. This time around, check out the dreamy pop musings of Running in the Fog (signed to local label Father/Daughter) and a DJ set by Two Gallants’ Adam Stephens and Tyson Vogel.
If that’s not enough, come out for the independently-crafted beer, including picks from Pacific Brewing, 21st Amendment, Speakeasy, Anchor, and more.
