Posted by Amoebite, July 8, 2014 03:08pm | Post a Comment

Chalice CaliforniaSTS9, Les Claypool's Duo De Twang, Hieroglyphics, E-40, Mac Lethal and more are set to perform at the uniquely SoCal Chalice Festival July 12-13 in San Bernadino, CA. Sure, there's a killer musical lineup, but this is also a celebration of all things cannabis, so live glassblowing, plentiful food trucks and yes--edibles--will also be spotlighted.

This is the first year for the festival, which takes place at the National Orange Show (NOS) Event Center and is sponsored by Hitman Glass. Chalice California is a two-day event dedicated to the culture and people surrounding cannabis concentrate, complete with educational seminars, competitions, and a glassblower village--not to mention some of the biggest names in hip-hop and dance music. Doors open Saturday at 12pm and Sunday at 11am.

You can pick up tickets at Amoeba Hollywood, where we've got individual day tickets ($40 for Saturday, $50 for Sunday), as well as a weekend pass ($70). Please note there is a $2 service fee per ticket. Or you can buy tickets online here

Silver Lake Jubilee 2012 Tickets Available at Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, March 13, 2012 05:27pm | Post a Comment

Silver Lake JubileeThis year's Silver Lake Jubilee in Los Angeles is on Memorial Day weekend May 26 and 27. The two day neighborhood festival may be its biggest yet with more than 35 bands, 40 comedians and performers, food trucks, craft vendors, and beer/wine for the 21-and-overs.

You can purchase two-day passes to the Jubilee at Amoeba Hollywood for $37 (this includes a $2 facility fee). 

One of the cool things about the festival, aside from all the great bands, is its focus on environmental sustainability. You are very much encouraged to bring your own container and pour water for FREE from the fountains provided on site (that's a lovely change from other festivals that charge ridiculous amounts of money for very small bottles of water). Vendors use compostable food containers, and recycling and composting happens during the festival. Big no-nos inside the Jubilee include single-use plastic bags, Styrofoam, balloons, or other non-recyclable containers. 

When: Memorial Day Weekend, May 26 & 27

  • 12 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 26
  • 12 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 27

Where: Santa Monica Blvd., with entrances from Sunset Blvd. and Commonwealth

Here is the lineup (so far):
