rock the vote logoOn Saturday, August 4, 2012 we had another great auction at Amoeba Hollywood with mister funnyman, Jason Boggs, who cleverly wooed the people into bidding on crazy and zany items. The energy in the store was amazing, with the sidewalk sale happening at the same time and the buzz of the shoppers and the great music in the store.

This month's auction benefited Rock the Vote, which is a little different for us, but it is timely and anything that gets people involved in understanding the issues and being involved is a GOOD thing. Jason, as always, was patient and urging at the same time and even though some folks were being a bit stubborn--he got the bids out of 'em.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Star Wars lunchbox with Lando Calrissian action figure inside - $10.00 (score!)
  • Dark Knight LP with passes to the show, etc. - $25.00
  • Signed Lana Del Rey 7" single - $15.00
  • Hollywood Bowl tickets to Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter and Jazz Night - $60.00
  • Natural History Museum passes - $22.00
  • KISS collectible glass set with Metallica shirt - $12.00
  • Grimes tickets - $30.00
  • Madonna mug and poster - $10.00
  • Beatles bag with patches, stickers and poster - $35.00
  • Trader Joe's gift card with lunchbox - $55.00 (!!)
  • Amoeba VIP in-store all-access pass - $15.00
  • Brew Coffee gift certificate with mug - $10.00
  • Record Store Day gift bag - $12.00

All together $311.00 was raised for Rock the Vote, and with Amoeba's match it will be $622.00!! Nice work everyone!
