The Fratellis

We're thrilled to welcome Scottish Alt-Rock band The Fratellis for a live Green Room Session at Amoeba Hollywood on Monday, November 11! You could win a spot in the audience for this intimate show! 

The Fratellis We Need MedicineThe Fratellis have just released their third album, We Need Medicine. The 11-track production is full of bluesy rock anthems. The single "Seven Nights Seven Days" is a rousing jam with a classic chorus backed by country guitars, while the title track is a gravelly, piano-led blues song that compels you to sing along.

For your chance to attend this special performance and recording session, send an email with your name, daytime contact number and the name of your favorite song from We Need Medicine to contest@amoeba.com.

The performance/taping will take place at Amoeba Hollywood on Monday, November 11 at 4pm. You'll need to arrive by 3:45pm. Winners will be notified by phone on Friday, November 8th.

Our Green Room Sessions are very intimate and fan friendly. It's like having your favorite band playing in your bedroom. You are literally that close. Check out how British indie rockers The Heavy interact with their fans at a recent Green Room Sessions performance. Nowhere else can you get an up close and personal experience like this!

Failure Reunite for LA Show - Limited Ticket Packages at Amoeba Hollywood November 7

Posted by Amoebite, November 6, 2013 01:47pm | Post a Comment

"Failure has been a huge inspiration to me. They say amateurs borrow and professionals steal. Well over the years this pro has robbed these poor saps blind. Biting their style has become second nature. But please don't tell them that." - Maynard James Keenan

Often compared to seminal bands of the '90s like Nirvana and Soundgarden, Failure were definitely an important gem of the alternative rock movement. The Los Angeles-based band signed with the now iconic independent label, Slash Records, in 1992. They went on to release three full-length albums on Slash before disdanding in 1997. Despite contributing a cover of  "Enjoy the Silence" for a Depeche Mode tribute album in '97 and releasing two compilations post-breakup, Failure has never reunited. Until now.

Failure is back and set to play its first show in over 15 years! It's all going down in Los Angeles at the El Rey on February 13, 2014. Tickets go on sale at Amoeba Hollywood Thursday, November 7 at 10:30am. Purchase a ticket and get a free limited edition 7” vinyl featuring two rarities (while supplies last). Limit 2 tickets per person and it's first come, first served. Also, please note that the vinyl will be available for pick up at the El Rey on Feb 13, and not at Amoeba Hollywood.

Posted by Amoebite, November 6, 2013 11:57am | Post a Comment
Wooden Shjips

The Bay Area's own Wooden Shjips has been throwing down spacey psychedelic rock since 2006. The band has been on a steady rise to rock prominence and doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon. Some of their early self-released 7" vinyl, such as Shrinking Moon For Youare hot items and can go for $50 online. That's of course, if you can get your hands on a copy.

Wooden Shjips Back to LandFor those of you not lucky enough to snag the rare vinyl don't fret! You can pre-order Wooden Shjips' lateset release, Back To Land (Thrill Jockey), via Amoeba.com. The new album is a follow up to 2011's West and is the band's first album produced outside of the Bay Area. Staying true to the band's aesthic, Back to Land boasts eight tracks of colorful fuzzy psychedelia, giving the listener what they want without being boring. It's business as usual and business is good! Back to Land out 11/12/13.

Wooden Shjips' guitarist Ripley Johnson (also of the group Moon Duo) visited Amoeba Hollywood for a little record shopping. Of course, our awesome What's In My Bag? crew got it all on video!

Recap: UCB Helped Raise Money for Food on Foot in our November Charity Auction

Posted by Amoebite, November 4, 2013 02:12pm | Post a Comment

UCB Charity Auction at Amoeba Hollywood

On Saturday, November 2, Matt Besser and Ian Roberts from Upright Citizens Brigade brought the goods and the guffaws with their dry wit and nutty antics. It was mayhem and mirth on the Amoeba Hollywood stage stage as they helped raise the bids up! Several customers were overheard saying they didn't know what the hell was happening, but it sure sounded exciting.

Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Iprovisational ManualThe Upright Citizens Brigade is a comedy improvisational troupe founded in LA by Matt, Ian, Matt Walsh and Amy Poehler. The UCB Theatre is dedicated to fostering both an appreciation and education of the arts through affordable and high quality comedic performances and classes. Their new book, The Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual, was borne out of years of work by the authors to provide the first step-by-step instruction manual for the art of comedic improvisation.

Matt and Ian shot several zingers into the crowd as they drove the bids up and up...

"Not bidding today is just like kicking a homeless person as you walk down the street!"

Our November charity auction beneficiary is our neighbors, Food on Foot. Since 1996 they have provided the poor and homeless of Hollywood with nutritious meals, clothing, job opportunities, and assistance in the transition to employment and life off the streets.

As always, Amoeba matches all winning bids and 100% of auction funds go straight to the charity.
