wax Poetics


Written by John Kruth

Marc Weinstein’s thirty-year odyssey curating California’s musical treasures.

Amoeba Music opened its first store on November 17, 1990, in Berkeley, California, offering an eclectic palette of music that spanned everything from mainstream pop and hip-hop to obscure jazz, electronica, blues, and folk. The store’s location (at 2455 Telegraph Avenue, on the corner of Haste Street, just three blocks from the University of California) was only one of its many reasons for success.
