New "What's in My Bag?" Episode with Band of Horses

Band of Horses Ameoba Music What's In My Bag?

Let it be known that South Carolina rockers Band of Horses are a very well read bunch of guys. Before their recent performance at Amoeba Hollywood the group scoured the store for records, movies, and a healthy selection of books, including the think piece, Fuck That: An Honest Meditation. "You know, just stuff that you would read on the toilet," says bassist Bill Reynolds. Reynolds also picked up autobiographies by two of his favorite bassists, Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead and Duff McKagen of Guns N' Roses. Drummer Creighton Barrett found a copy of Sounds Of Two Eyes Opening, a photo book of Southern California surf/skate/punk culture, and lead guitarist Tyler Ramsey grabbed The Record Store of the Mind by Tompkins Square Records owner Josh Rosenthal. But it wasn't all books (for the loo or otherwise) with the band. They also found an incredible collection of records and rock documentaries.

Band of Horses formed in 2004 after the dissolution of vocalist/guitarist Ben Bridwell's previous band, Carissa's Wierd. Early on in their career, the band opened for Iron & Wine in their then-hometown of Seattle, drawing the attention of Sub Pop, who would release Band of Horses' 2006 full-length debut, Band of Horses Why Are You OKEverything All the Time. For the band's follow-up, Cease to Begin, Bridwell and the others relocated to South Carolina. The group's international profile began to grow, with performances at the Roskilde, Glastonbury, and T in the Park festivals.

Our charity auctions began back in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana.

At every auction Amoeba matches all winning bids up to $1,000, doubling the amount of money going to charity.
