An Amoeba Tale of Two Pauls (Weller and . . . Reubens?)
Our friends at the venerable Amoeba Records out in California are hosting two events worth noting in the next few weeks.
First is a chance to win tickets to one of Paul Weller's Hollywood shows. On Monday, February 5th, Weller will close his three-night run at the Avalon Theater with a selection of songs from his years with The Jam, The Style Council, as well as his solo years; a sort of "Best Of Paul Weller" if you will.
You can win tickets here.
Sexy Sadie (Beatles cover) - Paul Weller
The Modern World - The Jam
Walls Come Tumbling Down - The Style Council
And, on a slightly odder note, the Amoeba in San Fran is hosting a meet & greet from Paul Reubens, aka Pee Wee Herman. Going down this Saturday, Reubens will be in-store to sign his DVDs. It's 3pm to 5pm at the Amoeba on Haight.
While you wait in what sounds like a long line (they advise arriving early), for your listening pleasure you can enjoy the zany musical stylings of Deejay Panatomic-X. Reubens is in town to be interviewed at Sketchfest on Monday the 22nd, followed by questions from the audience in the Palace of Fine Arts.
I can't even imagine the assortment of fans (and, potentially, costumes) that will turn out for that one. I'd totally be ready to scream real loud. And you? Oh, you know how to dance to this one:
