Getting Roofied 

Wednesday, Jun 26 2013

Remember that episode of Freaks and Geeks where they go to the Pink Floyd laser light show that's essentially just a bunch of squiggly lights on the ceiling and a crappy sound system? We've still always dug the idea, and thanks to the latest projection-mapping technology, we get our own, superior surround-sound light theater in the Westfield San Francisco Centre 1908 dome for free. Every evening, shoppers, tourists, children, and mallrats in love are invited to come snag an ottoman or floor spot to enjoy lights, music, and images showcasing San Francisco's history in Corazón Under the Dome. The show is put together by Obscura Digital, a San Francisco-based experimental technology studio. It has been responsible for architectural projection around the world, including work at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, Guggenheim Museum in New York, and Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. It's no Dark Side of the Moon — but Freaks and Geeks kids sat back and enjoyed their light show even when it turned out to be a Southern Rock show, so we'll take a little cheeseball Gold Rush history, Summer of Love imagery, Giants pride, and even a Tony Bennett tribute. Provided we get a pretzel and ICEE too.
