On June 2, 2010, Amoeba fan and friend Sir Paul McCartney was presented with the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song by President Obama at the White House. McCartney also performed several of his hits to mark the occasion, including "Michelle," which was of course dedicated to Mrs. Obama, and artists like Jack White, Elvis Costello, Stevie Wonder, Dave Grohl, Emmylou Harris and many more performed tracks from McCartney's deep catalog, plus remarks were made by Jerry Seinfeld!

Luckily for those of us who were not invited to the event, this award ceremony was captured on tape for all to enjoy, with performances, behind the scenes footage and interviews! It is set to air on PBS tomorrow -- July 28. Check local listings for exact air times!

To whet your appetites, here's a balls to the walls performance of "Mother Nature's Son" (with a bit of "That Would Be Something") by Jack White:

On Tuesday, July 27, Amoeba will present a book signing, talk and 3-D presentation with Brian May and Elena Vidal for their book, A Village Lost and Found from 7-9pm at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles! You no doubt know of Brian May for his tenure as lead guitarist in a little band called Queen. He is less known for his work as an astrophysicist (!) -- and his new book, along with co-author Vidal, a photographic historian, brings together a collection of stereoscopic photos called "Scenes in Our Village" by T.R. Williams.

Read much more about this signing event and also the contents of A Village Lost and Found right here!
