Amoebapalooza SF at Milk Bar, February 17

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, February 9, 2019 06:50pm | Post a Comment



Amoebapalooza SF is back with more Amoebite-powered musical mayhem on Sunday, February 17th. We’re keeping things very local and throwing this shindig directly across the street at Milk Bar (1840 Haight St.). Doors open to the public at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm. Admission is just $5. This is a 21+ event.

This annual celebration of the talented Amoeba employees and FOBs (Friends of Amoeba) is always a hoot and this year's line-up is action-packed. From a provacative live reading by author Jon Longhi to a screening of filmmaker Steven Anguiano's short film to raucous live sets from Use Kleenex (Kleenex coverband), Top Fo'ties (AKA Jesus Dude Mom), novelty rock giants Alan's Cousin, Combo (Michael Cruz and Keith Frerichs), Eli & Adam Play Folk Music, and a mysterious project called I Have Crabs, this is shaping up to be one of the most legendary nights yet.

Thank you to our pals over at SIR for providing our musical back line!

Band spotlight: Alan's Cousin
Imagine Flight Of The Conchords and Tenacious D have a baby, and meanwhile, James Taylor and Alan's CousinSugar Ray have a baby. Those two babies get it on and have baby, but they realize, "Hold up, we were born a few days ago, we simply cannot raise a child." Said baby is given up for adoption and raised by Bob Dylan and The Beatles. That baby is Alan's Cousin.

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.

Amoebapalooza SF 2017 Beat The Academy Awards

Amoebapalooza SF 2017

By Brent James

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?

Jon Longhi

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.
