Finn Wolfhard What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard visited Amoeba Hollywood recently and shared some music picks and talked about his band Calpurnia, whose first single "City Boy" was just released last week. "Most of this music is very influential to us," Wolfhard said of his selections, which included his current favorite band, The Lemon Twigs. "They're only a couple years older than I am, which is crazy," the 15-year old actor and musician told us. "They put on an incredible live show," he said before plugging their live video shot during their in-store performance at Amoeba. "Check that out."

He auditioned for Stranger Things after seeing an open casting call. He and the rest of the cast won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2017 SAG Awards.

Amoebapalooza SF 2018

On February 25th, the staff of Amoeba SF kept things very local and crossed Haight Street after closing in a group migration to Milk Bar for Amoebapalooza SF 2018! Part company party, part talent show featuring acts composed of Amoeba SF employees and friends, Amoebapalooza is a yearly tradition that is always a hoot. This year, the talent ranged from dramatic readings, to novelty rock, to electro-performance art, with lots of musical diversions and slices of pizza in between.

Thank you to our friends at SIR Studios for providing our musical back line and to Milk Bar for being the perfect venue and neighbor.
