Amoeba Music Featured in New Documentary VINYLMANIA

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, November 8, 2011 12:04pm | Post a Comment
Amoeba Music is proud to be featured in the upcoming documentary VINYLMANIA, a 75 minute feature length film about an object that has never lost its soul: the vinyl record. But the film needs your help TODAY! Go to VINYLMANIA's Kickstarter page to find out how!

An epic love story, the film is filled with fascinating characters and internationally recognized artists including Philippe Cohen Solal (Gotan Project), Winston Smith (Dead Kennedys, Green Day record sleeve artist), Peter Saville (Joy Division, New Order record sleeve artist), and DJ Kentaro (2002 DMC World DJ Champion).  

Devotion, ecstasy, infatuation, agony – these are all feelings that the director of the film, Paolo Campana, has experienced from childhood and shares with like-minded record collectors, DJs, musicians, and artists (the "vinylmaniacs") featured in the documentary. Set in 11 different cities and seven countries worldwide, the director sets out on a global road trip to find out what role vinyl records play in the 21st century.

Bay Area Girls Rock Camp guitars kids


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!
