Fans and supporters of Coco, unite!
SF Sketchfest will mount a tribute to Conan O'Brien this Saturday, July 17, when he will be interviewed by fellow comedian and friend to Amoeba Patton Oswalt at the Herbst Theater. Apparently there will be a special appearance by Andy Richter as well! This is a makeup date -- the event was originally scheduled to take place in January, when that whole little Tonight Show scuffle was going on...Hope Coco gets real about the whole ordeal while in conversation tomorrow night. Should be quite an interesting and no doubt hilarious onstage chat! Go here for tickets and more info!

On Saturday, June 5th, grooves from every part of the world came to Amoeba Music and People's Park for the Berkeley World Music Festival! Amoeba was everywhere at the festival, sponsoring the main stage in Peoples Park, setting up a booth on Haste St. with product, prizes and freebies, and having San Francisco's Afrofunk Experience (featuring ) play an amazing set inside the Berkeley store itself. Check out some pictures from the day's festivities below!
