To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Noise Pop, we were invited to host a session as part of the NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences series. We set up shop in the Tusher African Hall, sharing the room with some taxidermy creatures and a crew of live penguins. Jackie Sugarlumps, Josette Melchor and Dug Infinite held court, and while unplanned, a theme of firsts emerged: First job in a record store, first record bought upon moving to San Francisco, and the first time cash was exchanged for a beat. Thanks to everyone who came out, and most importantly, the folks at Noise Pop and NightLife who brought us out. Hopefully our first won’t be our last!
