Ever since the California Academy of Sciences started NightLife, its adult-only Thursday evening series, it's been a game changer for the museum. And now, Cal Academy just stepped up its game even more this summer with a new twist to its 21+ nights: NightLife LIVE.  

NightLife LIVE is a monthly series that brings what we already love about NightLife (science + no kid competition + alcohol), and will feature two more things we love: live bands and cutting-edge visual art installations. These extra special music performances and art displays will take place in the museum's East Garden; it's like a little oasis for your eyes and ears after learning all that science inside.  

NightLife LIVE started on May 8 and will continue through October 16, joining NightLife’s weekly Thursday night lineup. Here's the rest of the lineup so you can start planning your next trip to the Academy. Tickets, as usual, cost $12 ($10 for Academy members):
