San Francisco got a taste of Lana Del Rey madness Thursday night as the bewitching singerLana Del Rey Steve Wozniak Amoeba San Francisco celebrated the release of her debut album, Born to Die, at Amoeba Music.

Fresh from her successful performance at Amoeba Hollywood Tuesday night, Lana Del Rey arrived to the San Francisco store at 2:30pm and took the time to greet deliriously happy fans out on Haight Street (even greeting a friend of a fan's through his cell phone) before heading up to the Amoeba green room to get ready for her 6:00pm show. To say the show was well attended would be an understatement as the store's capacity was reached sometime around 5:30pm. With the store packed full of admirers and a line of hopefuls down Haight Street (and around the block), it would be safe to say that over 1,500 fans turned out to see the new voice of their generation.

Overhyped media controversy aside, Lana Del Rey was a vision of perfection to her supporters Thursday, who were focused on her sultry voice and angelic presence. If Madonna held the most expensive and entertaining satanic ritual ever created in the history of the world at the Superbowl, then Lana Del Rey held the biggest Love-in in the Haight since 1967.

Her gracious response to the overwhelming crowd was: "I only sing for you."

Earlier in the afternoon, Lana Del Rey jumped on stage to do a quick soundcheck. She seemed relaxed and happy in her jeans and Ferrari team racing jacket as she dipped in and out of a few songs from her new album, Born To Die. Her voice sounded crystal clear and stopped some shoppers still as they looked on.

She smiled and joked with a few fans from the stage, and once she was done with the soundcheck, she spontaneously jumped down to talk to a small crowd of fans which had gathered. They were thrilled of course, and she chatted with them for a few minutes, hugged them and took pictures before she slid out to the Green Room to get ready for the show.
