Nightlife LIVE is back with their Summer Music Series.  Once a month, from May – October, science, art, music and entertainment come together, providing an excellent opportunity to experience the Academy of Sciences in a completely different way. This summer, there will be events presented by Popscene SF, Outside Lands, and The Treasure Island Music Festival.

Kicking off May 14th will be a performance from “electronic Renaissance man” Machinedrum on the outdoor West Garden Stage as well as an opening set from B. Bravo.   Nightlife’s signature beer brewed using plant types grown from the academy’s living roof… Magnolia’s Aliciella Bitter.

Tickets for the first date, on May 14th, are available at
