Bigfoot Bonanza

Are you interested in the Unknown (with a capital U, of course)? Have you ever felt like there's more to American Bigfootthis world than meets the third eye? Fancy yourself an amateur cryptozoologist? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to join Amoeba Music at the Super Shangri-La Show's second annual Bigfoot Bonanza festival, happening March 10th & 11th at the Vogue Theater in San Francisco.

Spend two days running wild among Bigfoot-themed cult classics, documentaries, and TV shows, and listening to talks from some of the top specialists in the field, including Loren Coleman, Seth Breedlove of Small Town Monsters, Peter Von Puttkamer (Sasquatch Odyssey: The Hunt for Bigfoot), Daniel Perez of the Bigfoot Times, and Matt Ralston of Cryptozoologist.

A smorgasbord of Bigfoot movies and documentaries such American Bigfoot (2016), Beast of WhiteHall (2016), Man Beast (1956), Horror Express (1972), and (of course) The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972), and television episodes of Leonard Nimoy's In Search Of, Ultraman, Jonny Quest, and more will keep you on the furry edge of your seat.

MAGA (Make Amoebapalooza Great Again) + Six More Fun Acts with host Nicki Jizz @ Milk Bar Tonite: Amoebapalooza SF 2018 [$5, 21+]

Posted by Billyjam, February 25, 2018 04:29pm | Post a Comment

Amoebapalooza
is always a fun time but tonight's Amoebapalooza San Francisco 2018 at Milk Bar, directly across Haight St from Amoeba SF, with seven freshly formed musical acts taking the stage hosted once again by the incomparable host Nicki Jizz, promises to be really good. Even better admission to this back-to-back night of bands (musical support c/o SIR Studios), is only $5! Amoebapalooza SF 2018's scheduled acts will include Jesus Dude Mom, Plunk 67, Toyota, Gaktuse,  Jon Longhi, Alan's Cousin, and MAGA (Make Amoebapalooza Great Again).  As these fun made-up band names might imply, Amoebapalooza is a night of frivolity shared by music fans from the SF store or down with Amoeba.

Loosely continuing in the tradition of the freeform tribute-bands who played at the early-era Amoeba parties on Treasure Island, Amoebapalpooza has over the years become an anticipated annual Bay Area (and Hollywood) music lovers event. It is one in which musician Amoeba staffers along with their music fanatic friends pay musical homage to their favorite artists. And the often limited practice time put in by these impromptu Amoebaplaooza bands is more than compensated with their unlimited passion and energy. 

NJ Trio Screaming Females Keep It Local In Celebration of New LP “All At Once” With 3 Sold Out Nights @ Jersey City's Monty Hall

With the release this week of Screaming Females commanding new album All At Once (also vinyl 2LP and limited deluxe 3LP + 7" vinyl version), the renowned NJ power trio kept it Jersey side by celebrating their latest Don Giovanni Records release with three consecutive sold out nights at Jersey City’s Monty Hall. Tonight (Feb 24th) will be the New Brunswick group’s third and final show at the small venue that is owned and operated by venerable independent freeform NJ radio station WFMU.

With a limited audience capacity of approximately 135 people, those lucky to score tickets got to see this critically acclaimed band  for their first concerts of 2018 in the ideal intimate setting where they did not disappoint. I witnessed this last night when they delivered a booming clean sounding set of pitch perfect renditions of songs from their back catalog as well as their new decidedly more commercial-leaning, seventh full-length; their first since 2015's Rose Mountain (Don Giovanni).

Exile's Baker's Dozen LP is the latest vinyl in the ongoing Fat Beats instrumental series showcasing 12 tracks by various producers. It's among the many new releases at Amoeba. Scroll down for more info..


Kendrick Lamar along with singer SZA are being sued by artist Lina Iris Viktor who claims that, without her permission, they appropriated her Constellations series art in the collaborative duo's new music video for "All the Stars" off the new Black Panther soundtrack on Interscope.  In the suit filed yesterday she is seeking an injunction prohibiting the two artists from utilizing her artwork to "promote the soundtrack" of the phenomenally popular new Disney distributed Marvel movie.

The new star-studded hip-hop soundtrack, that also includes such other artists as Travis Scott, ScHoolboy Q, and 2 Chainz, topped the Billboard 200 chart upon its release last week; just as the landmark Ryan Coogler directed Marvel black superhero movie Black Panther has been a runaway box office success. Reportedly on this past Monday (President's Day) the movie generated a record breaking $40 million in US theaters on that one day alone!
