Amoeba Joins RBMA's San Francisco Broadcasts

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, February 25, 2015 05:39pm | Post a Comment

RBMA is the radio station of the Red Bull Music Academy and is now broadcasting live from San Ceiling EyesFrancisco, straight from their studio in the Mission District, every day from 2pm to 10pm 'till Mar 11th. Guests include Kevin Saunderson, Wooden Shjips, Honey Soundsystem, Amoeba music's own superstars, and many others.

Tune in to RBMA on Tuesday, March 3rd from 2-3pm to hear Amoeba presents Ceiling Eyes live! With their debut album First Lust Encounters, Ceiling Eyes unleashed their esoteric dreamworld on the masses. No two of their experimental ambient performances are ever alike.

Then on Tuesday, March 10th from 6-7pm, hear Amoeba's tribute to 1980's Sunset Strip with Lip Service (aka Brent James & Kells Bells). Spandex and hairspray reign supreme on the outside, but you might be surprised to see what lies beneath as Lip Service spins old favorites and deep cuts from the debauchery that was Hollywood in the late '80s. Listen with fondness or recoil in horror, but be prepared to get rocked to the foundation!

Tune it to RBMA HERE!

Spanish Singer Buika Performs Live at SF's Nourse Theater, 2/28

Buika, San Francisco

Amoeba Music and CIIS Public Programs & Performances present Spanish-born, Miami-based singer Buika on Saturday, February 28th at the Nourse Theater in San Francisco.

Since her introduction to the American music scene in 2007 with her album Mi Niña Lola (My Little Girl BuikaLola), Buika has experienced a meteoric rise, earning lavish praise from The New York Times, The Miami Herald, and The Wall Street Journal, as well as NPR, which quickly included her in their "50 Great Voices" radio gallery. Despite just a few concert appearances, she earned two Latin Grammy nominations in 2008. Her next release, Niña de Fuego (Fire Child) paved the way for relocation to Miami in 2011 (she lovingly calls the US "the country of happiness and noise").

Before her career took off in the US, she had already achieved success in Europe, performing on screen in the Pedro Almovar film The Skin I Live In and dueting with pop singer Seal. Music from those projects and more were collected in 2011 on the essential 2-CD set En Mi Piel (In My Skin) to satisfy a growing demand for her music in her new country. Rare is the artist to garner comparisons to Nina Simone, Chavela Vargas, and Cesaria Evora, but Buika has been compared to all of them. She has clearly inherited their steely independence and uncompromising creative vision.
