The Coup's DJ Pam the Funkstress (one of the many performers at Amoeba Berkeley today)
If you are in the Bay Area today put a stop at Amoeba Music in Berkeley at the top of your to-do list!
All day today, Sunday, November 14th, the famed East Bay Amoeba store that opened 20 years ago this month is celebrating
with a big sale and non-stop entertainment. In addition to 20% off all used items and lots of other enticing store bargains and goodies (EG gift bags for customers who purchase over $20 + Amoeba Prize Wheel with fabulous prizes such as a collectible lunchbox amp from ZT Amplifiers
or limited edition Amoeba 20th Birthday T-shirts) there will be non-stop music by DJs and other performers.
DJs include party rocker and turntable wrecker DJ Pam The Funkstress
of The Coup,
who, as you can see from the concert clip above, is an amazing DJ to witness live. Her set begins at 3pm today. Other spin masters today include two current Amoeba Berkeley staffers JoNasty
(noon) and DJ Inti
(at 1pm he will spin an exclusive "dollar bin" set), and two former Amoeba Berkeley staffers, DJ Platurn
(6pm is when the famed Oakland Fader
DJ kicks off the day's closing set) and DoseOne
(born Adam Drucker
and a renowned emcee) is such an incredibly gifted & multi-talented individual. His DJ set starts at 2pm and is followed by a
meet/greeting/signing session. In concert with his groups Themselves
he often simultaneously raps as he plays synth, sampler, and/or keyboard.
