Get Your Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Sundaes at Design Night

Posted By on Thu, Sep 6, 2012 at 7:30 AM


The Beastie Boys wrote about the sound of science, but what about the look of it? As we well know San Francisco is crawling with design geeks, but what about all our science-loving friends? Where they hiding at? And what if the two greats -- design and science -- were brought together in a monthly series?

Autodesk Gallery is doing just that by launching Design Night Thursday, September 6, the first in a new monthly series where design collides with science for a time of fun and extreme geekery. It's your chance to take off your members-only jacket and put on a lab coat, or vice versa. A new topic will be featured each month where guests can engage with ideas through discussion and activity, and industry leaders will be on hand to answer questions and inspire dialogue.

The first Design Night will explore the words of Bio and Nano Technology -- there will be Nano experts, Nanorobots and even liquid nigtrogen ice cream sundaes. And because no night in San Francisco is complete without drinks and tunes, Design Night will have a hosted bar and on the tables will be DJ Plustype using a syringe to make music in ... petri dishes. That's a step up from my science experiments where I experimented on my goldfish with quartz crystals.

Design, Science, Music, Drinks. Is there some stone this night left unturned?

Design Night: Small Is the Next Big Thing starts at 6 p.m. September 6 at Autodesk Gallery, 1 Market (at Spear). Tickets are $20, $10 for students, includes hosted bar.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
