Live music by Thao & the Get Down Stay Down and French Cassettes, presented by Noise Pop; additional DJ set by Push the Feeling.

Get marooned for a night of island-inspired entertainment as the Treasure Island Music Festival returns to NightLife.

Get down with a live performance by local folk-rockers Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, whose latest release We the Common (Ribbon Music) has been lauded by the likes of NPR, Spin and Paste magazine.

Sip tiki-style cocktails and catch two special dive shows in the Philippine Coral Reef, then share your desert island must-haves with others.

Meet Academy scientists Terry Gosliner and Brian Fisher, who explore island ecosystems in search of hidden treasures—from colorful corals in the ocean to undiscovered ants on the island floor.

See treasures from the Academy’s geology collection up close with collections manager Jean DeMouthe at the Project Lab, then take a trip to the Gem and Mineral Vault to admire precious stones rarely seen by the public.

Try a hand at mural painting with roving art gallery bus ArtIsMobilUs and marvel at the musical musings of poster artists from the Treasure Island Music Festival.

21+ Event. ID required for entry.
