Rick Springfield Booksigning at Book Passage in Corte Madera, July 26

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, July 7, 2014 06:00pm | Post a Comment

Join Amoeba Music and Book Passage in welcoming Grammy Award-winning rock legend, actor, and writer rick springfieldRick Springfield to the Corte Madera Book Passage on Saturday, July 26th at 4pm. Mr. Springfield will be signing copies of Magnificent Vibration -- his smart, savvy, and rambunctious fiction debut -- and giving a live performance!

"Why are we here? What is love? Is there a Loch Ness monster? Does God send text messages?" These are the kinds of questions Horatio Cotton, aka Bobby Cotton, asks in Magnificent Vibration as he sets off on an uproarious adventure to find his purpose in life. After serendipitously stealing a mysterious self-help book called Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purpose from a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scrawled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God—and that God likes to mess with him. Soon enough, Bobby finds an ideal companion for his journey—the breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp Alice—and they set out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation...and possibly save the planet.

Rick Springfield is also the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Late, Late Night, which Rolling Stone named one of the twenty-five greatest rock memoirs off all time.

Carletta Sue Kay's New Video "Sloppy Kisses"

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, June 30, 2014 06:33pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba favorite and SF local Carletta Sue Kay (aka Randy Walker) released her latest video, "Sloppy Kisses," just in time for Pride, Summer, Father's Day and anything else you can think of to celebrate while listening to this heart-wrenchingly sweet and sinister masterpiece.

Walker's female persona examines concepts of gender, love, life, and relationships through song and performance, and always with a twist. Who else but Carletta Sue Kay could rhyme the lines "cinnamon and sage" with "minimum wage" or toss out a head-scratcher like "I don't like my father at all, but I like your sloppy kisses"?

Enjoy the world of Carletta Sue Kay:
