Amoeba is teaming up with Converse Rubber Tracks to host in-store live show series with cool local bands and giving away limited split 7” to celebrate the shows.

First up on Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. is Tennis System at Amoeba Hollywood. The first 500 people will get a free limited edition 7” including a track each by Tennis System and So Many Wizards.

Composed of frontman Matty Taylor, drummer Hector Gomez and bassist Zach Bilson, L.A.-based shoegazers Tennis System put out their excellent second album, Technicolor Blind, in 2014. They’ve played with the likes of Ty Segall, Wavves, Japandroids, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Mark Gardner (Ride) and Beach Fossils, to name a few. And they’re favorites at local post-punk night Part Time Punks.

Listen to "Memories & Broken Dreams" below:


On Jan. 17 at 2 p.m., Windham Flat will play at Amoeba SF. Attendees can pick up a free split 7” with Windham Flat along with the band Cocktails, while supplies last. Falling somewhere between Spoon's rock 'n' roll grooves and shimmering post-punk, get a taste of the band's music with their song "The Cure" below:


Jan. 29 brings L.A.’s So Many Wizards to Amoeba Hollywood at 6 p.m. Fronted by Nima Kazerouni, So Many Wizards trade in embracing, buoyant indie pop that can’t help but bring a smile to your face. Read my interview with Kazerouni from a while back.

Check out the video to their song "Daydream" below:


Then on Jan. 31 at 2 p.m., it’s time for Cocktails at Amoeba SF. The band will play a set of fizzy power-pop and sign copies of their debut album, Adult Life. Check out the title track below:
