Piper Promotes: Nightlife at the California Academy of Sciences, Thursdays

Every Thursday, the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco hosts Nightlife. This is a 21+ experience of the museum: cocktails are available and guests wander free, mixing with exhibits and friends. Each week features a theme, planetarium shows, and either a live band or DJ.

On Thursday, July 5, 2012, the theme is Soundwave Nightlife. It is the opening night of Soundwave, a three month art and music festival in San Francisco. Soundwave artists will present interactive features within the usual Nightlife exhibits. The band playing will be the Lumerians. Additionally, the new exhibit, Earthquake, will be open from 6-10 pm in the West Pavilion with a quake simulator. The planetarium will host a live show Science Tonight feature Earth Update at 6:30, as well as Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet at 7:30 & 8:30 pm.

Tickets are $12 for non-members and $10 for members and are available here. They are available at the door, but in my experience that option involves a long line and potentially missed exhibits that fill up quickly if you don’t get there early.  RSVP on Facebook.

Every week, Piper will highlight an event or an organization on or near campus that is of interest to the Berkeley Science Review audience.
