On Sunday, February 15th, we celebrated another epic year of musical mayhem with Amoebapalooza SF at Brick & Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco. The all Amoeba employee-powered night of entertainment raged until early in the a.m. with eight musical acts, the enigmatic MC stylings of a masked Brent St. James, dance rave-ups on vinyl with DJ Ken Kubala, and a lot of Mardi Gras cheer.

Enjoy these amazing photos of the night taken by Lauren Clark.
