SF Sketchfest

The San Francisco comedy festival SF Sketchfest is back for its 18th year and runs January 10-27th at venues around the City. Amoeba Music is proud to co-present five stellar musical events:

 
Jonathan Coulton. Paul & Storm.
Rhett Miller
Greg Behrendt
Milk Carton Kids
 

Wajatta: Reggie Watts & John Tejada, with Galen & Solar from Sunset Sound System
Friday, January 11 • 9pm @ Mezzanine (444 Jessie St, SF)
Tickets
Wajatta – the new group formed by beat-boxer/comedian/musician Reggie Watts and electronic music artist/DJ/producer John Tejada recently released its debut album, Casual High Technology. Presented as a cosmic collection of funk-infused techno, Casual High Technology is the culmination of decades’ worth of Watts and Tejada’s favorite electronic music shaped to fit a new dance sensibility. Wajatta (pronounced wa-Ha-ta), as the name suggests, is a mash-up of the artist’s last names. Having grown up with similar musical influences, Austrian-born Tejada and German-born Watts draw from their love of urban, electronic music. With an opening set by Galen & Solar from Sunset Sound System. $30, 21+

Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm and "Friends" with Jean Grae, John Roderick, and more
Saturday, January 19 • 7:30pm @ Swedish American Hall (2174 Market St., SF)
Tickets
In the Venn diagram of music, comedy, and geek culture, you will find this show sitting squarely in the intersection of all sets. Join the inimitable Jonathan Coulton, kings of geekdom Paul and Storm, and their rhythmically gifted friends for an unforgettable night of music, laughter... and maybe even a sing-a-long. This is a partially seated show—arrive early for a seat. $30, 21+

Wheels Off with Rhett Miller featuring Dave Hill
Sunday, January 20 • 10pm @ Swedish American Hall 2174 (Market St., San Francisco)
Tickets
SF Sketchfest is thrilled for the return of Wheels Off with Rhett Miller (Old 97s) and his all-star friends. Modeled after old-school variety shows, Wheels Off features music, comedy, a little bit of discussion, and maybe even a skit here and there. This is a partially seated show—arrive early for a seat. $35

Bring the Rock with Greg Behrendt and Electrik Snöfläke with guests Tom Lenk, Matt Nathanson, Cedric Yarbrough and more
Friday, January 25 • 7:30pm @ Swedish American Hall (2174 Market St., San Francisco)
Tickets
Best-selling writer-comedian Greg Behrendt (He's Just Not That Into You) brings his wildly popular Bring the Rock show back to SF Sketchfest. The show gives comedians the chance to tell a story about a song from their past -- sometimes embarrassing, sometimes sentimental, always funny. Once their tale's told, Behrendt's band Electrik Snöfläke covers the song, often led by the comedian in question. Equal parts stand-up, storytelling and music appreciation, Bring the Rock is what karaoke should be. This is a partially seated show—arrive early for a seat. $30, 21+

The Milk Carton Kids Sad Songs Comedy Hour with Andy Kindler, Gaby Moreno and Aparna Nancherla
Sunday, January 27 • 7:30pm @ Marines' Memorial Theatre (609 Sutter Street, San Francisco)
Tickets
Join The Milk Carton Kids and their musical and comedy friends as they waltz into disaster and its aftermath on the festival’s closing night for a special one- of-a-kind old fashioned variety show! $45/$35, All Ages.
