I cannot make a list of all the artists I have seen at Amoeba
an electronic band with a heavy rock guitarist
I was lucky, beside Ringo Starr’s 75th birthday (above) I have attended a lot of concerts and events.
Amoeba was a mad house on Monday night, the four Englishmen of the enduring band Duran Duran were signing their new album, and you have to excuse me but I had no idea their fame was still at this level of fervor.
On Wednesday April 1st, another perfect fit for the place will be celebrated: David Lynch and his music with performances by Duran Duran, Jim James, Karen O, Moby, Angelo Badalamenti, Chrysta Bell, Donovan, Julee Cruise, Kinny Landrum, Rob Mathes, Sky Ferreira, Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips, Tennis, Twin Peaks, Zola Jesus
The charge is inaccurate accounting and failure to pay its royalties. See what happens here is a band hires a company to collect memberships and sell its merch. In the case of DD they were to get 75% of the profit but the til was a bit light. $40,000.00 light to be exacted
I remember the 1980s as one long nightmare, never ending, never pleasant, buying the new Costello album and discovering it was Spike, being so broke I couldn’t afford a gyro before work, contemplating suicide on a daily basis and no fucking music to get excited about.
