Posted by The Bay Area Crew, November 3, 2013 05:33pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba Music San Francisco celebrated Halloween 2013 with their notoriously competitive costume contest upon the Amoeba stage. In the past, we've seen fierce competition in the form of many creatures from The Ancient Mariner to Nicki Minaj. This year proved to be another nail-biter for the three judges (Tony, David, and Gabe) as the competition brought it again! Employees and customers competed for fabulous Amoeba Gift Certificates, so a lot was at stake!

DJ Kells Bells was scheduled to DJ the spooktacular event, but much to everyone's surprise two new DJs -- Yip and Yip -- arrived instead and played intergalactic hits of the past five decades.

The contestants were introduced by the mistress of ceremonies, Lobster Girl, who had just returned from fighting crime under the sea. Let's review the competition...

Amoeba employee Julian adorned himself as Lord Summerisle from The Wicker Man.
