Record Store Day 2016, Amoeba Music San Francisco

Record Store Day 2016 at Amoeba SF was a hit for collectors, music lovers, and those seeking a fun Saturday out on a surprisingly sunny San Francisco day. With loads of exclusive releases from David Bowie, Madonna, J Dilla, Iggy Pop, and so many more, it's no wonder we had a line that wrapped around the block and then some. We also held a bevy of sales, live t-shirt silk screening with print masters Free Gold Watch, DJ sets from opening until 6pm, and signings with both Pete Yorn and Kevin Martin of Candlebox.  

Check out our video of the action-packed day, which includes interviews with Pete Yorn and Kevin Martin, and these spectacular photos!

It’s the first time the performance has been commercially available and has been mastered from the original tapes, adding five performances to a 1993 release. Limited to 4,000 copies total.

Hundreds of vinyl collectors and music fans of all ages gathered in the wee hours of the morning on April 16th to celebrate Record Store Day at Amoeba Hollywood. By 7 a.m., a line stretched down Ivar Avenue, coiling around the back parking lot in anticipation for the store’s opening.

4 Turntable Set by DJ Shortkut & Maseo Tonight At Mighty SF Marks End of An Era

Posted by Billyjam, April 15, 2016 07:03pm | Post a Comment

Longtime San Francisco nightclub Mighty has been recently sold and in the coming months will be temporarily shuttered when the popular 6000 square foot venue located between the Mission and Potrero Hill, that opened 13 years ago, will undergo a total makeover and remodeling of its current simple, warehouse like design. Then at a later still to be determined future date, it will reopen under a new name as a more upscale nightlife destination, one that reportedly will not likely not feature much or any hip-hop. In fact already it is phasing out its hip-hop themed events with tonight, April 15th 2016, being one of the very final ones (Warren G is booked for four weeks) at Mighty. And tonight's show will be a good one: one that will feature a grand finale 2 DJ / 4 turntable performance by DJ Shortkut (Invisibl Skratch Piklz / Beat Junkies / Triple Threat DJs) with Maseo of De La Soul that promises to be off the hook. The pair have shared a stage many times before. Back in 2011, along with Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest, they teamed up to perform the Heavy Boogie produced Adidas Originals Breathe & Stop Tour of Asia.
