UnleashedWe here at Amoeba Music know that we have some versatile and attractive bags, but imagine our surprise when we discovered that our bags were being put to entirely hitherto unforeseen use in the new film Unleashed by Bay Area director Finn Taylor (Dream with the Fishes).

In this new interspecies comedy, Emma (played by Kate Micucci of Garfunkel and Oates) moves to San Francisco after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend (Josh Brener, AKA "Big Head" of Silicon Valley) with only her beloved pets Ajax (Justin Chatwin), a golden-eyed cat, and Summit (Steve Howey), an energetic mutt, in tow. One night, drawn by the light of a Supermoon, Emma’s pets escape into the night and are transformed into full-grown men.

And that's where the Amoeba bag comes to be important:

Unleashed

For a film that appears to (literally) be a shaggy-dog story, Unleashed is full of wit, spirit and a wonderful sense of insight into what it means to be human. And feline. And canine.

Check out screenings of Unleashed at Roxie Theater August 25-31, with special screenings featuring Q&A with Finn Taylor on Saturday, August 26th at 7pm and Sunday, August 27th at 6:30pm. (More info HERE.) Those in attendance at the special screening on Saturday, August 26th at 7pm will receive an Amoeba Music bag of their own filled with fun shwag and great savings.

Comedy fans rejoice! Director Rick Alverson (Comedy, New Jerusalem) has given the world the Neil Neil Hamburger, EntertainmentHamburger vehicle of a lifetime with his latest existential zinger of a film, Entertainment. Fans of Hamburger's performance-art-as-stand-up (or is it the other way around?), devotees of his output with the 1990's San Fran punk outfit the Zip Code Rapists (under his legal name, Gregg Turkington), and rabid collectors of his label Amarillo Records' limited releases have been waiting for this moment since the film showed at Sundance early in 2015.

In Entertainment Turkington/Hamburger Secret Chiefs 3portrays a down-and-out comedian on tour in the Mojave desert. He is a fractured man in search of happiness and his estranged daughter as we follow him through a series of novelty tourist attractions, third-rate venues, and volatile encounters.

Entertainment will have two very special screenings on January 8th and 9th at San Francisco's Roxie Theater, each followed by a live stand-up act from Neil Hamburger and music from Secret Chiefs 3!
