Review of Amoebapalooza Berkeley at The Night Light, Oakland - January 12th, 2014

You know how big music festivals like the Warped Tour, Lollapalooza, or Rock The Bells always have different stages presenting different acts for concert goers to choose from? Well last night's Bay Area Amoeba Music annual music festival/staff party event, which takes its name from the aforementioned Lollapalooza, also had two different stages but at two different clubs on both sides of the Bay Bridge presenting Amoebapalooza 2014.

These events, one at Brick & Mortar in San Francisco and the other at The Night Light in Oakland, offered up a richly diverse night of entertainment for both East Bay and West Bay peeps. Since I missed out on the SF event, opting instead to head down to the Jack London Square area Oakland venue for the evening, I will be anxious to read about Amoebapalooza San Francisco 2014 here on the Amoeblog in the coming days. Meantime let me tell you about last night's Night Light East Bay Amoebapalooza: it was Fun with a capital F, and all for no cover at the door. Unlike the SF show it did not offer a non-stop parade of bands but rather a nicely balanced night with just two bands (both high caliber), a DJ (excellent), and a stand-up comedian (really good), complimentary pizza and tasty cupcakes baked by former Amoebite Ryan, plus prizes that nearly everyone in the house was lucky enough to win.
