Event Details

Be among the first to see the Academy’s newly opened Earthquake exhibit and planetarium show, complete with shake table, live ostriches, and an all-digital recreation of the 1906 earthquake.

Enter an Earthquake Sundae-eating competition organized by Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop. Experience soundQuake, a unique visual and acoustic representation of Bay Area earthquake data from 1973 to present day which combines geo-located data with graphics and banjo chords. Check out what a SF foodie would need in case of an emergency with a earthquake kit prepared by Turntable Kitchen.

Live music presented by Noise Pop: 

  • Weekend, whose power-gloom guitar fuzz blends a post-punk sound with noise-pop mayhem
  • Violens, whose cool emotionalism on stage is reminiscent of the mid-’80s U.K. indie scene
  • Additional music by New Wave City DJs Shindog & Andy T., organizers of the city’s top 80s dance party.
