ROTATIONS: Gnome Beats

Friday August 5th 8pm

Timo Ceniceros, AKA Gnome Beats began creating original music at at young age with a cassette deck, 4track recorder, guitar and a pair of 5 gallon buckets.  Later in life Timo went on to study World Music at Cal Arts under the mentorship of influential guitarist Miroslav Tadic, but dropped out after a couple of years and ended up in San Francisco to explore the burning influences of Dub & Hip-Hop.

Join us for the return of Amoeba's prodigal son, Brently Heilbron -  the original host of the Amoeba auctions! He'll be auctioning off a crazy array of concert tickets (KRAFTWERK, CULTURE CLUB + more!), collectibles, gift certificates from our amazing neighbors (TRADER JOE'S, URBAN OUTFITTERS to name a couple..) and other things you never knew you had to have. As always, Amoeba matches all winning bids up to $1,000, which means we'll double the money going to benefit Inner-City Arts in downtown Los Angeles.

Friday August 19th 8pm

Garth's sound is a radical fusion of Acid House, Space Disco & Psyche Rock. He has produced 50+ records mostly on his own labels Grayhound and Golden Goose edits and remixed everyone from Tribe Called Quest, Faithless, Perry Farrell, Yabby You & Freeland. Bringing UK sound system culture to San Francisco in 1991, Wicked's lawless full moon beach parties ushered in an era of Acid House hysteria that ripped through the west coast and spread into the heartland.
