Amoeba Music, (((folkYEAH!))), and The Chapel proudly present a unique career-spanning residency with the “Godfather of Goth,” Peter Murphy, at San Francisco's The Chapel, January 23rd through February 16th! Murphy will join SF audiences for 16 nights, performing legendary albums in their entirety from throughout his career in this internationally exclusive event.

First emerging from the British underground in the late '70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J, and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking, iconic post-punk band Bauhaus, which spawned four seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She's In Parties,” "Silent Hedges,” and, of course, "Bela Lugosi’s Dead," before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career with Should the World Fail to Fall Apart in 1986. His most-recent release, the live album Bare-Boned & Sacred, came out this year.

Help Produce Magical Chanteuse Jill Tracy's Haunting New Video

We here at the Amoeblog are big fans of the San Francisco-based noir cabaret singer/pianist/storyteller and jill tracyone-time featured Amoeba Music Homegrown Artist Jill Tracy. Her beautifully chilling cinematic music, sophisticated lyrics, old-world glamour, and curious passion for strange tales has garnered her much attention and many awards over the years. With six albums to her name, Tracy’s music has appeared on CBS, NBC, PBS, numerous independent and feature films (including Jeremy Carr's surreal thriller Ice Cream Ants), and her song "Evil Night Together" was used to promote the last season of Dexter! What a delightfully macabre match!

Now this "femme fatale for the thinking man” (said the San Francisco Chronicle) who has elegantly carved her trademark style of glam noir music is raising funds via Kickstarter to finish a beautiful video for her song "Pulling Your Insides Out," directed by Jeremy Carr. Shot on location in Red Hook, Brooklyn (once home to legendary horror icon H.P. Lovecraft), the video features eerie cobblestone alleys, and an authentic NYC thunder and lightning storm which happened suddenly in the midst of shooting! See some sneak-peek footage from this lush video below and donate to the cause HERE!
