Soundwave ((6)) Opening Night Party with LIVE sets by Rogue Wave & Kacey Johansing, presented by Soundwave and SF Bay Guardian.

The ocean is a never-ending source of inspiration, wonder, and sound. This month, NightLife LIVE, our new summer series, dives deep to explore underwater worlds through music, art, and science.

  • In the East Garden, catch a live set by Oakland’s own Rogue Wave as they play hits from their most recent release Nightingale Floors (Vagrant Records), then check out supporting act Kacey Johansing, bringing a sweet blend of pop and rock to her hometown stage.
  • Throughout the museum, water-centric installations and exhibits showcase the role that water plays in art. For starters, step inside the underwater habitats of complex marine life, including seahorses, anemones, a sea-star, and our very own species homo sapiens.
  • Immerse yourself in an exhibit by Gabriel Fontanillo and Leyre Montes as you shrink among larger-than-life ocean sculptures to become a part of this micro-world presented on a macro-scale, illustrating the crucial impact humans have on these fragile ecosystems and the enchanting creatures that call them home.
  • Explore ocean currents and tidal movements with a hydroprinting demo by Travis Johns—you can even take home your own custom hydroprint!
  • See what happens to the ocean when pH and temperature levels change with Gene Felice, then hear how objects found in the water provide other-worldly acoustics with Edward Schocker.
  • Plus, learn the fascinating history of Sausal Creek at “Speaking Tributaries” by Ana Labastida, Jesus Landin-Torres, Kate Lee Short and Sadie Harmon.
  • In the Piazza, check out “Submerged Turntables,” an installation and performance by Evan Holm featuring Karuna Holm—the name says it all, but you have to see it to believe it.
  • In the Coral Reef, test your balance with “Datasurf,” an interactive surfboard challenge with Lyes Belhocine and Drew Detweiler.
