NightLife, the live music series that takes place every Thursday night at the California Academy of Sciences, is going out with a grand whisper this Thursday to conclude its summer season. Hundred Waters is a band nearly impossible to place within a genre (“electro”, “ambient”, “folk”, “post-rock”, and “dance” have all been used to describe them in various capacities), but they are grounded in songwriting that shines while never quite boiling past a beautiful simmer. Lead singer Nicole Miglis’ voice is both simultaneously warm and distant, an evocative combination that made the group’s latest release, 2014’s The Moon Rang Like a Bell, a hauntingly soothing listen.
Hundred Waters built their live chops playing opening slots for Alt-J and The XX, and their headlining performances have become something altogether of it’s own kind. Opening the series of night shows for this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival – NightLife will also be hosting a happy hour prior to the concert including DJ sets, lawn games, and a photobooth.
The Montreal four-piece TOPS will open the show before revisiting the Bay Area next month at the Independent for their own headlining performance. This event will be the perfect kick-off to one of the best weekend’s in the Bay, and The Bay Bridged can get you and a friend hooked up with free passes — look below for details.
