On Sunday, September 19th 2010, a magical event took place at Milk Bar on Haight Street in San Francisco.  This event is know only as AMOEBAPALOOZA! Since the beginning of time... or at least Amoeba Music's birth those 20 years ago in Berkeley, California, Amoebapalooza has been our annual celebration of music and entertainment produced and played out by Amoeba employees. One night a year, the hard working, talented folks that work at the greatest record store in the world get to gather together and show off their musical skills. Amoebapalooza is always open to the public, and on Sunday the 19th the public came out en masse to enjoy a night of music, drinking, and dancing with the Amoeba Music San Francisco crew. 

At 8pm on Sunday evening, the doors at Milk Bar opened and the beer began to flow. We had two fantastic DJs, DJ Kindle & DJ Vinnie, start out the evening and spin tunes in between each band. This year we had 7 bands perform total, including a singer song writer, an old fashioned cabaret act, a metal band, a Sting cover band, and so much more. Each band was able to perform for almost 30 minutes, which made Sunday's showcase really fulfilling for the audience and the artists. I could attempt to write out a description of each band and try to give you a visual myself, but I'm a full believer that photos speak louder then words.
