Bay Area Girls Rock Camp is an Oakland-based non-profit whose mission is to empower girls ages
 8-18 through music education, creation, and performance. On December 3rd at 4pm, experience members of their Advanced Music Program (AMP) -- a program designed for teenage musicians who want to form bands, write original music, and take their music to the next level -- as they perform on the Amoeba Berkeley stage!

Four AMP bands will be featured at Amoeba Berkeley, as well as the alumni band  Gnarwhal and the Sheeps! Born out of the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp Summer 2011 Internship program and made up of high school students from all over the Bay Area, Gnarwhal and the Sheeps blew us away with their killer song "Silver Lining" at the BAGRC Session 2 showcase. These industrious musicians not only worked hard as the interns for summer camp, but they also managed to put together a band that has been practicing and writing songs via SKYPE since July of 2011. 
 
The Bay Area Crisis Nursery will also be on hand to collect toy donations for the holidays! You can help by donating new, unwrapped, non-violent toys, representative of all races, ethnicities, and cultures. Ages Newborn to Teen!

Monday afternoon may not be everyone's first choice for party time, but Amoeba San Francisco wasn’t about to let something as insignificant as a day of the week get in the way of a good costume contest!

Amoeba San Francisco’s annual Halloween employee costume contest
was kicked off with the spooky sounds of DJ Tay, who came dressed as a Hippie Butcher complete with the head of Jerry Garcia!

Funnyman Sean Murphy served as our Master of Ceremonies and introduced each of our masked miscreants one by one as judges Tony, Donnell, and Suzanne took copious notes.


Julian
lead the charge as…a mailman! 


Then we had a special guest appearance by the one and only Tina Turner! Also known as Nick!


Luciano pillaged the stage in Viking gear.
