Amoeba SF & Berkeley's Top 10 Most Amazing In-store Performances of 2017!

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, December 31, 2017 04:54pm | Post a Comment

By Brent James

Amoeba’s live shows and events are the icing on an already impressive cake, and anyone who’s ever been to one can attest to the energy, excitement, and pure feeling of community they bring! We here in SF have noticed listening parties have started to become popular, as well as good old-fashioned “meet and greets” and album signings. 2018 is already looking like a banner year for our in-stores. To hold you over, here’s a look back at the most thrilling shows of the past year!

10. Summer of Love Celebrations - Amoeba SF - June 10 & July 28, 2017
Has it only been 50 years?? Well, we had no shortage of celebrations this past Summer to answer that question and pay tribute to the most tumultuous and artistic eras ever! And it all happened RIGHT HERE. We had 30 ft. projection screens, flowers in our hair, great local food, and, most important, the MUSIC that fueled a VERY different San Francisco.

9. Matisyahu - Amoeba SF - Thursday, May 25 2017
The return of Matisyahu to the Amoeba SF stage saw a much more relaxed set this time around. In support of the amazing Undercurrent, we had a sweet little weeknight show that, if I recall, came with perfect San Francisco weather. It’s always a pleasure to host Matis.

8. Chris Robinson Brotherhood - Amoeba Berkeley - August 4, 2017
One of the first acts to test the boards of the revamped Berkeley stage, CRB brought the house down with an acoustic set that could be felt all the way around the world. Guest guitarist Neal Casal was on hand to add to the magic!
