So many of us here in the Bay Area have been wooed by the particular charms of Stephin Merritt and his Magnetic Fields! Luckily for us, the new documentary film about the band, Strange Powers, is coming to the Roxie Theater in San Francisco starting today and running through Nov 18. Check out the trailer below.

Benefit for Local Sound Engineer Kim Greiss

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, November 10, 2010 10:38am | Post a Comment
We were shocked to recently learn that local sound engineer Kim Greiss, who has helped out by running the boards during instores at Amoeba SF for many years now, has recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. She's a freelancer at clubs like Bottom of the Hill, Slims and Great American Music Hall, which means she does not have insurance. She has already begun rigorous treatment, so the kind folks at Bottom of the Hill are staging a benefit for her this Thursday night!

The bands that will be on the bill are Taxes, Fake Your Own Death, and Kill Moi!

There will also be a huge raffle and a silent auction. Items you can win include two tickets to any NoisePop show, two $25 Amoeba gift certificates, two tickets to any show at the Fillmore and a night at the Kubuki Hotel, and much, much more! Get the full list here.

Please come out and enjoy a fabulous show while helping a crucial member of SF's creative community!

On an uncharacteristically sunny Sunday in San Francisco, a skeletal hand released a needle onto the crackly ridges of Bauhaus’s “Bela Lagosi’s Dead.” Ghouls flocked from the far reaches of their cavernous haunt to the stage as the lights dimmed over the oldies section. The omnipresent CLACK-CLACK-CLACK of browsing slowed to a near stop. It could mean nothing else…it was time for Amoeba San Francisco’s annual Halloween employee costume contest!

The festivities were led by the musical styling of DJ Tay the Ripper (also known as Security Taylor). Luckily, Tay the Ripper was able to take off time from his busy schedule of murder and mayhem to spin spooky songs all afternoon. The set was perfectly chosen to get everyone in the mood for a fierce costume competition. And fierce it was. Kaitlin, our mistress of ceremonies for the afternoon, rallied the ghoulish group together and brought them out one by one.


First up was Willie as "Beavis, from down the block."
