Bio: Formed in San Francisco shortly following the completion of the Mission Dolores by Spanish missionaries in 1776, Amusia is an inimitable melange of variously-produced noises, including by plucked string and hominid vocalization.
In their day jobs, the responsible parties are known as Michael Sho... See Full BioMore Info
Hey everybody, in light of a big birthday I'm having and the completion of a NEW ALBUM with Michael Shockey (more below) I'm coming back out to San Francisco from New York to throw a show: Viracocha 998 Valencia St at 21st San Francisco $10 (or $15 with CD) 7pm - 10sih Performers, and some Details: AMUSIA - that is, Marc Wilson and Michael Shockey - will enact with guitar and voice absurdities of story and song enhanced by small animations and weird papier-mache heads. We've also finished an ALBUM, for god's sake, encapsulating ten years of collaboration in a magnificent full-band studio recording which has been embellished with accordions, Santana's bassist, and a Star Trek tricorder. It is true. And we'll have that album there. In fact this will be the first place that album will ever be. It will be an album *release*, as they call it in the biz. And if you throw in five extra bucks at the door, we shall provide you a copy. More at www.amusia.org. PHILLIP T. NAILS and ELISABETH MILLICAN: Phillip may not be re-obliged to enter the Ramen ring as he was the last time we had an"Oral Fixation" show 10 years ago, but he, with his lovely fiance EBeth, will mount grand comic theatrics. This is very possibly your last chance to see these globetrotters on stage as an unmarried couple... though I'm not sure what effect marriage would have on them as performers, so that probably doesn't make any difference. Come see them now, while they're just as charming as they will remain later! MARK SILVERMAN is bringing a whole family back up to SF from LA to make a nice weekend of it, perform some musical comedy, and possibly settle a decade-old score (mysterious). His songs can be further explored at www.marksilverman.com --- Am I going to implore that ARIELA MORGENSTERN, a woman in heated competition with herself to be more beatiful than talented, sing? It sure seems like it would be stupid not to. Are we going to do a COMEDY SKETCH? Absolutely, one, I'd think. We'll set up a comedy sketch. <b>Steve Arnston, Charlie Getter, Cameron McHenry, and Ginger Murray</b> are just some of the fabulous others who have been alphabatically asked to perform - and, better still, not said no. Lastly, will SOMETHING WEIRD happen? Christ, I hope so. I'll be working on that. Come one and all and etc.! To support our fair friends at Viracocha and defray extensive prop and costuming expenses, the door cover is $10, or $15 netting you the aformentioned CD as well. Again: Viracocha 998 Valencia St at 21st San Francisco Things will be happening 7pm sharp, as it's a Sunday and we want to cram in a well nigh ungodly quantity of joy and entertainment. However, none will be turned away for lack of promptness.
