Amoeba SF 20-Year Anniversary

Amoeba SF turns 20 this November! To celebrate our Platinum Anniversary, we're throwing a two-day party Friday 11/17 and Saturday 11/18, complete with live musical performances, DJs, flash sales, prizes, arts and crafts, a photo booth, Amoeba’s Platinum Drag Show, and more!


We kick off the festivities on Friday 11/17 with a live performance and signing with electronic-soul sister duo Ibeyi at 5pm. Sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz will sign their new album Ash (out now on XL Recordings). The first 50 customers to buy Ash at Amoeba SF on the day of the in-store will get a wristband entitling them to a spot in our preferred viewing zone and priority in the signing line. (More info HERE.)

Additionally, 1,000 used vinyl records will be hitting the floor on Friday morning for the first time. Get the jump on the fresh stock!

On Saturday 11/18, the celebration lasts all day! We'll get started first thing at 10:45am with the Bay Area's own New Orleans-style band Blue Bone Express leading a procession up Haight Street and right onto the historic Amoeba stage when we open at 11am! The first 100 folks in the door will receive an exclusive gift bag full of fun Amoeba shwag and more.

We'll have live DJs all day, and if they look a bit familiar it's because they're all original Amoeba Family Royalty! That's right, we have DJs JBoogie, RasCue, DocFu, and MikeBee, all of whom started off right here at Amoeba. While they provide the sonic landscape, an arts and crafts table and balloon art will thrill kids and adults alike! Then, we'll roll out the photo booth from 3pm to 5pm so you can commemorate the occasion forever.

After the DJs, stick around for SF drag entertainer extraordinaire Nicki Jizz and her troupe of drag superstars for their Platinum Drag Show tribute to Amoeba at 5:30pm!

Additionally, we will be giving away prizes every hour from noon to 4pm, including the grooviest TEAC TN-420 tie-dye turntable! Plus, we will announce a different surprise flash sale every hour too! You just cant miss this all-day party.TEAC TN-420
