By Brent James, Amoeba SF Event Coordinator
It was another smashing year for live music here at Amoeba SF! Whether you came to one of our shows or attended an artist signing, there was something for everyone. While ALL of our events rock me to the core again and again, here are the top 5 that are most noteworthy to me.
5. VINTAGE TROUBLE: Thursday, September 24, 2015
A wonderful acoustic set of songs from VT's LP 1 Hopeful Road. This show was a warm-up for their opening gig for AC/DC at AT&T Park where they played for more than 30,000 people! Check them out when they come to a venue near you and have your mind scrambled.
4. PE 2.0: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Described as "a branch on the Public Enemy family tree", PE 2.0 came in and blew us all away with a live set of music: new tunes and re-workings of older, more obscure Public Enemy songs. Lead MC Jahi never missed a beat and worked the crowd into a frenzy during the almost hour-long showcase! Legend Chuck D watched from the wings like a proud father but didn't perform. Maybe next time ;)
