Live Shows / In-Store Events
Where Is the Calendar of Upcoming Shows & In-Store Events at Amoeba?
View the in-store schedule for all three Amoeba stores here.
Do I Need a Ticket for a Live Show or In-Store Event at Amoeba?
Generally, no. All our in-store performances are free and all-ages. If you want to get in the signing line after a show, please purchase the artist's latest release at Amoeba and keep your receipt. Occasionally in-store events (signings, mostly) are limited, usually based on the artist's schedule. Each in-store listing under Upcoming Shows will specify whether or not there is a limit for a particular event.
How Early Should I Arrive for a Live Show or In-Store Event?
Can I Take Photos or Video at a Live Show or In-Store Event?
It depends on each artist. In general, fan photos are OK and video is not OK, but it is ultimately each artist's decision. Please feel free to call the store hosting the event or ask us on Twitter closer to the show date.
If you are a professional photographer and want to take photos at one of our events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
How Can My Band Book an In-Store Performance?
Please keep in mind that Amoeba is NOT a regular music venue. We book a show or two a week, generally for label-supported artists in conjunction with a new release. If you are interested in playing at one of our stores, please email a press kit and digital file to email@example.com.
