Recap: October Charity Auction at Amoeba Hollywood to Benefit NKLA

Posted by Amoebite, October 7, 2013 04:47pm | Post a Comment

NKLA

WOW! What a ride Saturday was, with the incomparable Don Barris (Windy City Heat, Big 3 Podcast, Jimmy Kimmel Live) hosting our October Auction at Amoeba Hollywood. We began hosting charity auctions in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and since then, with your help, we've raised over $450,000 for New Orleans Musician Relief, green charities, animal charities, Doctors Without Borders and many local organizations.

October is "Adopt a Shelter Dog Month" so this month's auction proceeds went to NKLA, a coalition of animal welfare organizations, city shelters and individuals led by Best Friends Animal Society which is dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. city shelters. They provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so fewer animals go into shelters, and increase adoptions through the combined efforts of the NKLA coalition so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes. Stay tuned for our other events in October, including a pet adoption at the Hollywood store on Sunday, October 27th.

Don Barris at Amoeba Hollywood

This month's guest auctioneer, our good friend Don Barris, has a unique brand of comedy unlike most other comics, making him the Comedy Store's perfect closing act every night. He was the co-creater/star of the cult classic film, Windy City Heat, which was developed in the Comedy Store's Belly Room. The show is now called The Ding-Dong Show and it continues every Monday night as it has since 1992, making it the longest running show in the club's history. Don can also be seen nightly as the audience warm-up for ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With Moby!

Posted by Amoebite, October 2, 2013 06:36pm | Post a Comment

From humble punk beginnings to global festival headliner, Moby is easily one of the most recognizable faces in electronic music. In addition to being a platinum selling artist/producer, Moby is also a seasoned photographer and a multi-instrumentalist. He's an advocate for animal rights and a devout vegan. The guy is one cool dude.  

Moby is back with his eleventh studio album, Innocents (Mute). Following a move from New York to LosMoby Angeles, he recorded most of the instrumentation himself. He also collaborated with a list of relatively known singers including Mark Lanegan, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, Cold Specks, Skylar Grey, and Damien Jurado. The result is a multi-layered production of both deep emotion and huge sonics. 

The album will be promoted by a three date tour in Los Angeles. Yes, just 3 live shows will make up all the touring for Innocents. Oct 2, 3 and 4 will see Moby perfoming three hour sets at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. Each show will be performed in two parts with the first half featuring songs from the new album and the second half being a "greatest hits" set.

New Cloud Control Green Room Session & Exclusive Free Download

Posted by Amoebite, September 26, 2013 03:38pm | Post a Comment

Cloud Control

Cloud Control exclusive download

Cloud Control just released their second album, Dream Cave (Votiv), last week. From track to track the album gently unfolds like a warm blanket fresh out of the dryer. Well crafted songs at times layered with lush synths and polished vocal hamonies take you from dark and lonely to bright and fuzzy. The songs are big but not overly produced, which makes for easily listening. Cloud Control has a cinematic feel that will definitely find them on many soundtracks to come.  

To help celebrate their new album, the Australian quartet performed an exclusive set for the Amoeba Green Room Sessions series. The stripped down performance was nothing short of stellar and when a band rocks in the green room, you know they've got magic! As a special treat for the fans, Amoeba and Cloud Control are offering an exclusive free download of their song "Dojo Rising" recorded live in the Hollywood green room. Download now.
