For What It's Worth

Posted by Amoebite, April 1, 2013 11:43am | Post a Comment

For What It's WorthVH1 Classic's new show FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH recently stopped by Amoeba Music Hollywood for a little crate digging.

The show follows Howard Stern Show producer Gary Dell'Abate and on-air personality John Hein as they travel the U.S. checking out the most diverse and sometimes insane pop culture collections (a homemade Mr. T doll collection... uh.. what?).

Although the show can be a little rough around the edges... (John, you haven't heard of 200 gram vinyl???) it caters directly to the music nerd in me with looks into the Michael Ochs' archive, Jack White's Third Man Records, a factory tour of United Record Pressing and now Amoeba Music! VH1 Classic, for a channel didn't know I had... you've earned a spot on my DVR.

Songs By Thom Limited Edition Cassette-only Release

Posted by Amoebite, March 31, 2013 07:49pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba Hollywood employee Thom Petrizzo's band Songs By Thom has just released a limited edition songs by thomcassette called Love...Unrequited. Get it HERE on Amoeba.com before they're all gone!

"Local L.A. musician and Amoeba's very own Thom Petrizzo (a.k.a. Songs By Thom) presents Love...Unrequited, a limited edition cassette-only release. This album is a whimsical and wistful collection of catchy ditties with simple but universally-relatable topics: longing, yearning, and hard-won love. Thom builds upon guitars, keyboards, and drums, with heartfelt, confessional lyrics and layered vocals, such as on album opener "May I?" or the kaleidoscopic treat "It's Nice To Dream." This is bashful bedroom pop at its most charming!" - Brian G.

Andre Royo

Andre Royo is famously known for his role as "Bubbles" on the hit TV series, The Wire. If you are a fan of the series then you know that Bubbles keeps it real! If The Wire's not your thing, you've probably seen Royo on other television shows including Third Watch, Party Down, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Fringe, Key & Peele, Prime Suspect, and most recently Elementary.

In this "What's In My Bag?" episode Royo keeps it very real and drops an impromtu Hip Hop history lesson, giving us a few of his classic picks. He also shares the story of how the ultimate '80s boxer flick, Rocky, inspired him to become an actor. Andre also does a little shopping for his daughter, grabs a few Rock & Roll LPs, and tells us about his "first introduction to white people." The dude is funny, see for yourself!
