Event Details

Amoeba Music: Free In-Store Mini Concerts

Amoeba Music regularly welcomes traveling and local artists for in-store performances at their San Francisco and Berkeley locations.

Hear your favorite artists for free often right before they hit the stage elsewhere in the Bay Area.

The 60th anniversary of the legendary soul label Stax Records commemorates its extraordinary legacy as an international hit-making machine and its indispensable chapter in American musical history as an integrated company in the heart of the Civil Rights movement.

The Stax 60 celebration will highlight the hits, deep cuts, and rare tracks from the Memphis label’s heyday of the ’60s and ‘70s, including the many legendary artists who jointly created the world-renown “Stax sound,” – Otis Redding, Booker T & the MGs, Isaac Hayes, The Staple Singers, Carla Thomas, Rufus Thomas, Johnnie Taylor, Eddie Floyd, William Bell, Sam & Dave, The Dramatics, and many more.

Amoeba SF is proud to pay tribute to this amazing era and historic label on Thursday, August 3rd at 5 pm with a special listening party complete with treats, giveaways, and more. It’s free and all-ages, so bring the whole family and prepare to cut a rug.
