Posted by Amoebite, September 11, 2015 04:03pm | Post a Comment

The Wild Reeds

LA's own The Wild Reeds are a five-piece band who have evolved their traditional and ethereal folk sound into an Americana force of harmonies and rhythm. The band released their formal debut album Blind and Brave in August 2014, produced by Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare Studios. In the past year, they've toured alongside artists such as Noah Gundersen and Israel Nash. They also made appearances at Way Over Yonder Festival, Make Music Pasadena, Echo Park Rising, Claremont Folk Festival, and Lightning in a Bottle.

They're making their way across the country now for the Americana Music Awards showcase in Nashville, TN on September 17th. They'll be back in Los Angeles to support The Bluegrass Situation at The Greek Theater on October 4th and are playing a show at One Colorado in Pasadena on October 10th. Keep an eye on their website for other upcoming shows.

In celebration of the recent LP release of Blind and Brave, The Wild Reeds visited Amoeba Hollywood for a live set and signing. Their fans came out to support the release and some new fans emerged after the band's in-store performance.

Amoeba Invites San Diego Sellers to Record Round Up

Posted by Amoebite, September 4, 2015 05:42pm | Post a Comment

San Diego Record Roundup

Amoeba Music, the country's biggest and best independent Record Store, is inviting San Diego residents to bring their unwanted LPs, CDs and music collections to our Record Round Up at the King's Inn the weekend of Oct. 23-25.

We're bringing buyers down from our stores in San Francisco and Los Angeles to meet folks in San Diego and create a convenient way for area residents to get top dollar in cash for all resellable items. Sellers may also opt to get even MORE in credit for our stores or shopping on Amoeba.com.

HOW IT WORKS:

Sellers may bring in any amount of CDs or VINYL formats (including LP, 12”, 45s and 78s), and buyers will inspect and evaluate each item, add them all up and make a cash offer! Only items in playable condition will be considered for purchase. Prices offered vary widely based on title and condition and the retail value; see below for a list of most sought after genres**. Valid government-issued I.D. is required for all cash transactions.

Sellers can bring us their stuff anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the first two days of the event and up until 4 p.m. Sunday, and we will happily help you unload and bring in your used vinyl and CDs. We are also open to buying any original music and concert posters. Our buyers are friendly, fast, efficient and will work hard to keep your experience fun and as quick as possible. 

It's EASY to sell your collection. Whether it’s those “hard copies” that are taking space on your shelves, a collection or estate of a family member, or your own personal collection, we can pay you cash on the spot and bring those records back into the world for another generation to enjoy! Skip the three-hour drive to L.A. and liquidate your unwanted records and CDs without leaving town.
