Mill Valley Film Festival

Amoeba Music is proud to co-present two music documentaries showing at the 40th Annual Mill Valley On The Sly, Sly and the Family StoneFilm Festival, which runs October 5-15. The Mill Valley Film Festival aims to bring inspirational feature and documentary films from around the world to captivate and motivate members of the San Francisco Bay Area community.

Catch these two riveting music docs, both a must for serious music connoisseurs:

On The Sly: In Search of the Family Stone
Friday, Oct. 13 at 6:00pm at CinéArts Sequoia
Saturday, Oct. 14 at 9pm at Century Larkspur
Part amateur sleuthing adventure, part chronicle of a legendary artist, On the Sly documents one man’s quest to discover what happened to the reclusive Sly Stone. Interviews with former bandmates, label execs, and music historians detail the story of Sly and the Family Stone and its once-charismatic, now-mysterious leader. Producer Patrick Sheehan in attendance.

Third Mind Blues
Thursday, Oct. 12 at 5:30pm at CinéArts Sequoia
Friday, Oct. 13 at 9pm at Lark Theater
The story of the final creative partnership in the career of The Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek was a wonderful study in contrasts with blues guitarist and Bay Area musician Roy Rogers. Third Mind Blues is the special behind-the-scenes look at their playful, philosophical collaboration that invoked the SF Beat poets and decades of music history. Director Willian Tyler Smith in attendance.

Denver’s annual Colorado CRUSH (Creative Rituals Under Social Harmony) art festival has grown exponentially since its comparatively small beginnings as a local event back in 2000. Now in its eight year Colorado CRUSH 2017 has grown into a large scale, vibrant, fun, annual aerosol art festival attracting artists and art fans from all over. Happening all this week (Sept 11 - 17), Colorado CRUSH 2017  features 130 different artists. While its participants are predominantly local, many of the CRUSH artists are invited in from around the USA as well as from other countries. These artists’ work fill walls all over Denver’s RiNo district and beyond as outlined in this CRUSH map. Like the city of Denver, CRUSH is a laid back, warm, welcoming and unpretentious affair. Even when CRUSH is not taking place as a city Denver is visibly welcoming to outdoor and people with spray cans in hand, unlike so many other cities.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Power Trip

Posted by Amoebite, September 13, 2017 02:53pm | Post a Comment

Power Trip What's In My Bag?

Texas crossover thrash metal band Power Trip stopped by Amoeba Hollywood recently hunting for records. The five members had very eclectic picks, ranging from black metal to Britpop, post-punk to alt-country, and they had a lot to say about all of them, especially their home state heroes, ZZ Top. "This is one of the greatest American rock bands," proclaimed bassist Chris Whetzel as he held up the band's breakthrough record, Tres Hombres. "If you don't like this band then I have some words for you."

With roots in the genres of hardcore, metal, and punk, Dallas-based Power Trip has shared the stage with a remarkably diverse range of artists, including Merchandise, Big Freedia, Title Fight, Power Trip Nightmare LogicAnthrax, and Napalm Death. Founded in 2008, the current lineup consists of Riley Gale, Blake Ibanez, Chris Ulsh, Nick Stewart, and Chris Whetzel.

After self-releasing an early collection of demos, the group first began attracting notice with the release of their Armaggedon Blues EP. Power Trip toured relentlessly, putting out a self-titled three-song EP in 2011 and then signing on for an appearance at the 2012 Pitchfork Festival. The following year, the band signed to Southern Lord and released their first full-length, Manifest Decimation. Their sophomore LP, Nightmare Logic, followed in early 2017. Power Trip is touring North America this fall with Obituary, Exodus, and Dust Bolt.
