SF Sketchfest

The San Francisco comedy festival SF Sketchfest is back for its 17th year and runs January 11-28th at venues around the City. Amoeba Music is proud to co-present two stellar musical events: Epic Rap Battles of History Live and Smells Like the '90s: A Night of '90s Music and Comedy!Epic Rap Battles of History

Epic Rap Battles of History Live
Great American Music Hall
Jan. 26th (two shows: 7:30 & 10:00 pm)
Tickets
The record-breaking digital series Epic Rap Battles of History, created by Peter Shukoff (aka Nice Peter) and Lloyd Ahlquist (aka EpicLLOYD), features comedic rap battles between historical and/or pop culture figures - such as Albert Einstein vs. Stephen Hawking, James Bond vs Austin Powers, Steve Jobs vs. Bill Gates, and Jim Henson vs Stan Lee. The series, which airs on the YouTube channel /ERB, is currently the most-viewed format on YouTube on a per-episode basis. The series has garnered over three billion views and more than 14 million subscribers, and has been nominated for numerous awards including the Emmys. Musician, comedian and actor Nice Peter, and comedian and emcee EpicLLOYD first met freestyling on a porch in Chicago. EpicLLOYD recruited Nice Peter to join the improv comedy group Mission IMPROVable, which he helped found at the University of Massachusetts and later expanded across the country. In 2009 the improv group began the M.i. Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, CA and after separate moves to Los Angeles, Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD connected again in the comedy circuit performing at the club.In 2010 Nice Peter, already a well-established YouTube personality, suggested that one of the live segments he, EpicLLOYD and MC Mr. Napkins (Zach Sherwin) were performing—an improv rap show that featured comedic, poignant altercations between two characters suggested by the audience—was better suited as a digital format. Tapping into his growing YouTube fan base, Nice Peter went to his channel subscribers for potential matchup ideas. Premiering on Nice Peter’s channel in September 2010 as Epic Rap Battles of History, John Lennon vs. Bill O’Reilly, the first battle in the series, was an instant hit. It was Episode #2 though, Adolf Hitler vs. Darth Vader, that became a viral sensation—with now over 96 million views. Epic Rap Battles of History has since featured appearances from hugely popular stars including Weird Al Yankovic, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, Key & Peele, Rhett and Link, George Watsky and DeStorm Power, among others.

Noir City

Noir City, the most popular film noir festival in the world, returns to San Francisco's majestic Castro The Man Who Cheater HimselfTheatre for its 16th edition, January 26-February 4, 2018. "Film Noir from A to B" presents 24 classic noirs as they were experienced on their original release, pairing a top-tier studio "A" with a shorter, low-budget second feature, or "B" film. All but one of the films will be presented in glorious 35mm.

The Film Noir Foundation's latest restoration will also receive its world "re-premiere" on the night of Saturday, February 3: The Man Who Cheated Himself, an independently made noir thriller from 1950 shot on location in San Francisco! Thanks to the generosity of Noir City patrons and donors, the Foundation was able to fully fund the restoration of this film after the only existing print was lost to "vinegar syndrome."

Returning as producer and host of Noir City is Eddie Muller, founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation and the man known internationally as the Czar of Noir, not to mention the host of Turner Classic Movies' new franchise Noir Alley.

In addition to the 12 chronologically-programed double bills, Noir City will feature three book signings: a panel of Noir City e-magazine contributors will sign copies of This Gun For Hirethe new 2018 Noir City Annual 10 on Saturday, January 27; Alan K. Rode will sign copies of his new biography, Michael Curtiz: A Life in Film, following his presentation of Curtiz's The Unsuspected on Wednesday, January 31; and on Saturday night, February 3, veteran local photographer Fred Lyon will sign his book, San Francisco Noir, a collection that captures the noir spirit of the City by the Bay.

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.
