A Year in the Life of Amoeba San Francisco

It's been yet another eventful year here at Amoeba San Francisco, our 11th here on Haight Street! Below is a sort of best-of, a bunch of the highlights from the year for us, from instores to holiday events-- read on to celebrate the end of 2008 with us!

Going back to January 2008, we kicked off the new year with a groovy instore from Devendra Banhart.

January also saw the second annual Amoeba Art Show, held at the Space Gallery here in San Francisco. Many of Amoeba's employees, you see, are also fantastic artists, and so a huge gathering of pieces created by said employees from both the Berkeley and San Francisco Amoeba stores was shown, and the event also included some music, drinking and general hobnobbing. The art below was created by Amoeba Berkeley's Zak Wilson. More info about the event can be found here.


Then, in February, Vampire Weekend hit the stage for a HUGE and thrilling performance. You can go right here for a review and all the photos from that show.

Thank you, Steve Malkmus

Today we have the illustrious Steve Malkmus and the Jicks playing on the Amoeba stage at 7pm!  I'm very excited about this.  I enjoy Pavement, his previous band.  My favorite track of theirs, Malkmus'   Range Life  touched my life in a time when I was looking for answers.  By that, I mean, I was living in a hippie town and for years couldn't pinpoint why exactly all these scraggly pseudo hippies made me so dang pissed off.  Malkmus allayed my anger merely by recognizing his own confusion when it comes to hippies in this track.  In honor of his appearance today here at Amoeba San Francisco, here is the video for Range Life:



And here's another track that expresses some ambivalence about proto yuppie hippes from his first and fabulous self titled solo album.  It's a live performance of "Jenny & the Ess Dog":
