On Friday August 6th, Amoeba transformed a vacant storefront into a one-night only MINI-AMOEBA for The East Bay Express'
BEST OF THE EAST BAY PARTY, which this year took over the entirety of Oakland's Jack London Square!
Amoeba Berkeley brought down a taste of each section of the store: selling LPs, CDs, and DVDs from each of our eclectic sections. We also sold all sorts of other accessories like T-Shirts, buttons, guitar picks
In addition to selling product, Amoeba also curated an East Bay Poster Artist show, gathering 4 stellar artists from Oakland and Berkeley who brought with them some legit Rock and Roll street cred with them.
Our pop-up store didn't stop there! Also at the party, we kicked of a raffle to benefit The Bay Area Girls Rock Camp
where you can donate one dollar to the music camp for future Riot Grrrls and get entered into a drawing to win a custom Amoeba Guitar (here being shown off by Amoeba owner Marc Weinstein).
