Amoeba SF’s 20th Anniversary Celebration | Haight

Amoeba SF turns 20 this November. To celebrate this Platinum Anniversary, they’re throwing a two-day party complete with live musical performances, DJs, flash sales, prizes, arts and crafts, a photo booth, Amoeba’s Platinum Drag Show, and more on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18.

Amoeba SF’s 20th Anniversary Celebration
November 17-18, 2017
Amoeba SF, 1855 Haight Street, San Francisco

Friday, November 17th

Kicking off the festivities on Friday, there will be a live performance and signing with electronic-soul sister duo Ibeyi at 5 pm. Sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz will sign their new album Ash. The first 50 customers to buy Ash at Amoeba SF on the day of the in-store will get a wristband entitling them to a spot in the preferred viewing zone and priority in the signing line.

Additionally, 1,000 used vinyl records will be hitting the floor on Friday morning for the first time.

Saturday, November 18th

On Saturday, the celebration lasts all day. At 10:45 am, the Bay Area’s own New Orleans-style Blue Bone Express will lead a second line procession up Haight Street and right onto the historic Amoeba stage at 11 am.

The first 100 folks in the door will receive an exclusive gift bag full of fun Amoeba shwag and more. In addition to the sonic landscape, an arts and crafts table and balloon art will thrill kids and adults alike. Then, they’ll roll out the photo booth from 3 to 5 pm so you can commemorate the occasion forever.

Additionally, they will be giving away prizes every hour from noon to 4 pm, including the grooviest TEAC TN-420 tie-dye turntable. Plus, they will announce a different surprise flash sale every hour too.
