Amoeba-Gaga!

Hundreds of people lined up early as early as 4am Thursday near Hollywood & Highland in the hopes of getting just a glimpse of Lady Gaga. The Amoeba Army was there too, having a blast and giving out goodies in the proce
ss!

The pop diva, along with her two guitarists and several dancers, performed live on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Show and gave the thousands that later turned out a show of shows. 


Gaga played five songs from her new release Born This Way.




Helicopters swarmed, lights flashed, police circled and fans went completely crazy for this once in a lifetime event right around the corner from Amoeba
Hollywood, and we were happy to be a tiny part of it!


          
            Here are just a few of the many photos we snapped last night. Enjoy!!




Shock & Awe (Banned Cover Art)

I'm diggin' this list of Banned / Removed / Altered cover art. A subject that comes up every once in a while on the floors of Amoeba. (Totally in chronological order, 52 so far!) view the full list here!

Beautiful South Moby Grape

#41 - The Beautiful South - Miaow - 1994

Evidently The Beautiful South were threatened with a lawsuit by HMV for this cover for using "their dog".  The cover was replaced by a cover of 4 alsation dogs stranded in a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean.

#4 - Moby Grape - S/T - 1967

Columbia realizes too late that a certain middle finger is showing.  Efforts to airbrush out the finger don't quiet the controversy.

#6 - The Bob Seger System - Ramblin' Gamblin' Man - 1969

Looks like somebody lost a bet...
