Dog Adoption Day at Amoeba Hollywood October 27

Posted by Amoebite, October 14, 2013 03:26pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba Hollywood is partnering up with Best Friends Animal Society for a Dog Adoption event on Sunday, October 27th from 1-4pm!

Best FriendsThe Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. They work collaboratively with animal rescue groups, city shelters and passionate individuals who are all dedicated to the mission of making Los Angeles a no-kill city.

Best Friends Animal Society also leads NKLA (No Kill Los Angeles), a coalition that provides spay/neuter services where they are needed most so fewer animals go into shelters. They also increase adoptions through the combined efforts of their initiative, so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes. Best Friends provides grants to coalition partners for every pet they adopt to a new home, and also funds spay/neuter projects for pet owners who can't afford to have their pets fixed. In 2012, Best Friends/NKLA facilitated 23,421 adoptions and 4,458 spay/neuter surgeries were performed.  

Best Friends Animal Society will have some of their amazing, adoptable dogs on site at Amoeba Hollywood on Sunday, October 27th. All dogs will be spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated.

Come down and meet your new best friend and find out how you can make a difference in the lives of these kind and special animals.

Gary Numan

'80s electro-pop synth pioneer Gary Numan is set to release his 20th album, Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind) (Machine Music Label) on Tuesday, October 15th. For over 35 years, Numan has been pushing the envelope with his innovative electronic music. Widely known for his mega hits, "Cars" and "Are Friends Electric?," Numan has a deep catalog that runs the gamut of sonics and musical styles from pop radio hits to underground industrial goth not for the faint-hearted. Over a span of seven years and personal turmoil including depression, midlife crises, and adjusting to fatherhood, Numan fell in and out of the writing process and struggled to comeplete the new album. But in 2012 it all changed, with a permanent relocation to Los Angeles, a happy home life and a brand new studio; Numan was back at it, full on.

Gary Numan SplinterThe result is a whirlwind of emotional content set to the backdrop of plush synths and hard beats that make for a pretty epic production. In a recent interview Numan states, "the reason why the album is called Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind) is because of the depression. I felt broken. That’s where that subtitle comes from. It’s not a nice thing at all." Fans can now pre-order the album via amoeba.com.

A Band Called Death Blew the Doors off Amoeba Hollywood [Video]

Death

Some music enthusiasts and critics alike believe the band Death to be the precursors to punk rock. Jack White is quoted as describing them as "ahead of punk and ahead of their time." Mos Def says, "These dudes were pre-Sex Pistols, pre-Bad Brains, pre-all that shit, and nobody knows about them. I don't understand how the world could forget them."

The documentary A Band Called Death tells the story of a Detroit band made up of three brothers who pursue a record deal to no avail. Despite interests from big wig Clive Davis, who insited that the band change their name for broader appeal, the group refused and was never signed to a deal. Their demo tapes were boxed away and placed in an attic to be forgotten. Three decades later, a demo tape made its way out of the attic and into the ears of an audience several generations younger.

Death

In 2009, Drag City Records released a 7-song LP entitled ...For The Whole World To See. Soon after, a reformed Death took to the stage, almost 30 years after they formed.
