Hit So Hard is the pull-no-punches portrait of the hell-and-back life of Patty Schemel, the drummer of Courtney Love’s seminal rock band Hole during its peak years. An unprecedented and unflinching look at one of the ‘90s most crucial and controversial groups, Hit So Hard (directed by P. David Ebersole) shows  Patty as a true Gen X survivor.  

Catch this one-of-a-kind documentary at San Francisco's Roxie Theater April 27th - May 3rd! Director P. David Ebersole, Patty Schemel, and Eric Erlandson (Hole) will introduce the 7:15pm and 9:30pm screenings on Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28! They will also hold a Q&A after the 7:15pm screening on both days!

With a line forming around the block, through the McDonald's parking lot and down Waller Street, RecordRecord Store Day 2012 San Francisco Amoeba Music Store Day 2012 today (April 21st) at Amoeba San Francisco was the best-attended one yet! As we discussed before, Record Store Day is not taken lightly amongst discerning music collectors and Amoebites alike, and this year we all felt the rosy glow of the True Meaning of Record Store Day as the doors were flung open to the excited crowd at 10:30am. As you'll see in these accompanying photos and the video below, special limited edition releases were what brought these souls together, but the instantly-made friendships between like-minded Amoeba patrons spoke to the higher purpose of RSD.

Also in the spirit of giving (and collecting limited edition stuff!), Free Gold Watch was on the Amoeba Record Store Day 2012 San Francisco Amoeba Musicstage screen printing the two winning designs from our first-ever design contest! The shirts went FAST, but we still have a few tote bags at the registers. If you are interested, act fast before they are gone! Proceeds of t-shirt sales will go to the kids at SF Rock Project, because children are our future! Donate well and let them show the way.
