Thursday October 15th 6pm

YACHT celebrates the release of their new album, I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler (out 10/16 on Downtown Records - available for purchase and signing at the in-store), with a live set and signing at Amoeba Hollywood. Also catch them on 10/22 at Teragram Ballroom.

YACHT’s new album, I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler, is a sweeping and visionary critique of the 21st century. It reveals the band at its most self-assured: critical, funny, tough, and musically diverse, crafting an infectious and hyperactive conceptual pop that seems to seep through the walls of an alternate universe.

Crate Diggers Record Fair LA Is where you'll find some of the best records from dealers / collectors in southern California. The 21+ Record fair is happening at LOT 613 in DTLA on Saturday, October 17 from noon until 6PM. Amoeba is honored to host this special set from house legends Theo Parrish, Marcellus Pittman, and Zernell.


Tuesday October 20th 7pm

The five members of GospelbeacH possess a prestigious collective resume that includes membership in Beachwood Sparks, Further, The Tyde, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals and Everest. But one listen to the quintet’s warmly wonderful debut album Pacific Surf Line will instantly dispel any preconceptions about supergroup self-indulgence or side-project slumming.
They celebrate their new album with a live set and signing at Amoeba Hollywood!


Friday October 23rd 8pm

Join us at Amoeba San Francisco for an otherworldly evening of Theremin appreciation with Theremin virtuoso Dorit Chrysler. She will hold a one-hour Adult Theremin Workshop, KID COOL THEREMIN SCHOOL, at 5pm on the Amoeba stage. No previous experience required. Sign up NOW at the Amoeba SF info desk as space is limited. At 6:30pm, Chrysler performs live. Prepare to be amazed!

Also catch her at the SF Symphony on Halloween night for The Rocky Horror Picture Show.


In the one-hour Adult Theremin Workshop, participants will be introduced to the technical and practical aspects of the Theremin - an electronic musical instrument that is controlled by the relative position of the player’s hands. Participants will be able to learn and practice the basics of playing the theremin, practicing in small groups and working towards repertoire. 
Sign-up for the KID COOL THEREMIN SCHOOL workshop at the Amoeba SF info desk! There are only 10 spots available. These spots will go fast!

Live performance with Dorit Chrysler -- 6:30pm
