Whether you’ve attended one of our amazing live shows or maybe even a more casual event such as an album signing, there’s no doubt that there’s never a dull moment at an Amoeba Music brick and mortar store! While every gig here in the store is special, here’s a list of the top shows of 2018 that really blew our socks off! In no particular order…

1. Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids, Friday May 18th, 2018

The show kicked off with a procession (led by King Idris of course) that started off at the stage and snaked around the store. Snatching anything and everyone in its path, the band eventually made it back to the stage and kicked off a rousing 45 minute set of material from the band's latest release, An Angel Fell. Watching Idris do his thing would be almost enough to satiate even the most hardened music/Jazz fan, but The Pyramids held their own-laying the foundation for what turned out to be a top notch Jazz show that had jaws dropping and eyes widened with adoration from an appreciative crowd. Even the legendary Rhodessa Jones was in attendance. The evening truly had a special feel to it.

2. The Motels, Friday April 5th, 2018

What an absolute DREAM it was to host the legendary Martha Davis and The Motels on the Amoeba Stage! Playing in support of their latest album, The Last Few Beautiful Days, Davis and Co. tore through a set of familiar classics and newer, soon-to-be Motels staples that left jaws dropped and a the crowd wanting more! See them when you get the chance.

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.

Welcome to September! It's back-to-school time and soon it will be Fall (on September 22, to be exact). Our September sales will help you prepare for the seasonal change. It's a good time to stock up on books, music, and movies for the upcoming colder months, while still enjoying the extended Bay Area Summer!
