Start the night with local phenoms The She's with their ‘60s pop and surf rock-inspired harmonies and jangly guitars, and then catch the upbeat electronic R&B headliner Electric Guest. In between sets, listen to the sonic artistry of DJ KingMost and check out the art installations in the West Garden from Tyler Dean Harrison, Quarso, and Luminous Waveforms. Also make sure you browse used vinyl at the Amoeba Music pop-up shop! We'll be bringing loads of quality used vinyl so prepare to go crate digging.

Ladies and Gentlemen...The Revolution.

The Revolution

By Brent James

The Revolution recently had a two-night engagement at the historic Fillmore Auditorium in San The RevolutionFrancisco on July 11th and 12th, and we had the absolute pleasure of attending not one but both sold-out shows! Featuring the original lineup of Wendy Melvoin on guitar, Lisa Coleman and “Dr.” Matt Fink on keys, BrownMark on bass, and Bobby Z on drums, Prince’s former band tore through two hours of memories with precision and finesse.

“Wendy?”

“Yes, Lisa…”

“Computer Blue” kicks off the set with an ocean blue wash over the transfixed capacity crowd. The band stays true to the original but owned it and the other songs as well, with an updated yet familiar sound of a band that’s been playing together on and off for over 30 years. “America” came next, more relevant now than ever. We’re reminded that Prince saw our future in 1985.

By the time “Mountains” rolls into the set, you find yourself in awe of the fact that you’re watching the band that wrote and recorded these gems in person. Many people are here tonight to heal, some are here out of curiosity. One thing is for sure and widely understood: the Purple Family runs deep and all are welcome. Yes, we’re here to celebrate Prince and His legacy, but this band is holding their own and without a doubt making Him proud.
