Another amazing Amoebapalooza has come and gone, and this year's soiree on Sunday, February 26th was definitely one for the books! Who needs the Academy Awards anyway with THIS star studded lineup?
Relying heavily on our Video Room staff for the bulk of the evening's entertainment, author Jon Longhi kicked off the night with passages from his own books! Stimulating imagery poured from the stage as Jon opened the doors to his mind and gave everyone in the room a free pass. Fun fact: two of Mr. Longhi's publications have covers created by R. Crumb, who once called Jon the "Bukowski of the Nineties."
Next up, the staple of our yearly get-togethers, the one-man band and always-entertaining SNOTMOP. As usual, the set was peppered with songs about current events. No love was shown for the current political state of America, that's for sure.
One of our newer employees took the stage next. Going by the moniker MBC1855, a totally out-of-nowhere, almost Moroder-esque set was unleashed and had the crowd dancing at one point. One thing is for sure, this kid knew what he was doing and where he wants to take it.
