October Events at Amoeba SF & Berkeley

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, September 27, 2018 06:05pm | Post a Comment

October may be the spookiest month of the year (well, besides April...TAXES!) but it's also the most fun. Even if you don't plan on dressing up in costumes and demanding candy from neighbors, you can still party the whole month through with Amoeba SF and Amoeba Berkeley. We've got enough live in-store shows, listening parties (including one for the Halloween soundtrack!), and hair-raising sales to keep things festive. And don't forget that October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our stores will have the special pink logo Amoeba shirts on sale for just $12.99 all month. Proceeds will benefit the Bay Area Cancer Connections.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Valerie June

Valerie June - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

We were delighted to have singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Valerie June visit Amoeba San Francisco for a What's In My Bag? episode. A native Tennessean, June found some classic records by artists from her home state, including Big Star. "They say sometimes that music coming out of Memphis can only make it so far," she told us, "and that story kind of became a thing with them. To me they're (as) big as The Beatles." Not only does she feel connected to the music, but she also has recorded at Ardent Studios, where Big Star recorded some of their most beloved tracks. June had much to say about all of her eclectic choices, making for an insightful and sincere video. 

Valerie June began her music career at the age of nineteen. Based in Memphis, she first attracted attention through her solo work, which draws on elements of gospel, Americana, blues, folk, soul, Valerie June - The Order Of Timecountry, and bluegrass. In 2010, she recorded the Valerie June and the Tennessee Express EP with the help of Old Crow Medicine Show. She launched a Kickstarter to fund the album that would become her breakthrough, 2013's Pushin' Against a Stone. The LP was recorded with assistance from The Black KeysDan Auerbach and record producer Kevin Augunas.

Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on."
