Sick and tired of all the drones hovering over your apartment? Let out some of your luddite anger by watching a fierce drone cage match and perfect your robot dance moves with the spacey tunes of Beach Fossils! Thursday, March 26th, Robot NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences will be bringing you a taste of the future with insight into the technology of tomorrow, featuring 3D printing, UCSF’s kilobots, and Silicon Valley Robotics. Get down with R2D2 and witness a clash between the robotic warriors of Bot Bash! Tickets are on sale now.
Noise Pop is bringing Sophie, AG Cook, and QT to 1015 Folsom on Thursday, March 26th! Bring your QT Energy Elixir and dance the night away as the enigmatic Sophie and PC Music mastermind AG Cook show us the future of pop! Their maximalist, overly synthetic sound makes it hard to distinguish art from parody, pushing the boundaries of production to create an unbelievably polished, almost robotic feel. The mysterious net label’s set is sure to be one of a kind, so get weird with the infectious sounds and bubbly taste of QT (yes, QT is not a person but an energy drink), with support by Blackbird Blackbird, Grimecraft and Trekkie Trax in the front room. Tickets are still on sale here.
If you didn’t make it out to this month’s inaugural Noise Pop show, our residency at the Swedish American Hall continues next week with Mark Eitzel!
