Death Touring California For First Time Ever

When Drag City issued long defunct Detroit band Death's recorded-in-'74 album .. For the Whole World To See, we couldn't keep 'em on the shelves here at Amoeba. Seriously, they were flying outta here like proverbial hotcakes! Thanks to the epic popularity of the first release, for your listening pleasure a set of demos from '74-'76 called Spiritual Mental Physical, is also out now.

And now, for the first time ever, Death will be rocking California -- they have two dates scheduled: Feb 25 at Slim's in San Francisco with Zolar X and Feb 26 at Echoplex in Los Angeles with Sic Alps and RTX! All killer, no filler!

For more about Death, stay tuned to the blog in February, when our Kelly will have a more in-depth post about the band as we celebrate Black History Month!

Flavor Flav's 99 cent Chicken Wings!

Posted by Amoebite, January 25, 2011 12:15pm | Post a Comment
I was still beating myself up for not getting a photo of the Obama Chicken Wing place when I drove by this sign in Las Vegas last November. Once I got back to LA and started a google search to see what additional info I could find. I was hoping for some sort of Kenny Rogers / Flavor Flav rivalry but alas, there was NOTHINGGGGGGG.

Flava Flav's Chiken

cookinFast forward a few months and the mystery has been solved.
Flav's Fried Chicken Offically Opens! I'm completely baffled as to why he set up shop in Clinton, Iowa of all places, but their wikipedia page already boasts his restaurant under the sub-head 'culture and institutions'. HAHAHA! Awesome.
