Recap: December Charity Auction with Garfunkel and Oates

Posted by Amoebite, December 4, 2012 05:06pm | Post a Comment

Garfunkel and Oates at AmoebaMusical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates hosted the December charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood. This was actually their second time hosting the auction and, once again, their zany and "in-yer-face-perfectly-appropriate-for-a-Saturday-afternoon-at-the-record-store" humor proved that they ain't just pretty faces. The girls drew a really great crowd of about 70 to see them perform a couple of songs and then launch into the rapid-fire auctioning frenzy. 

Ya had to be QUICK to get a bid in 'cause they weren't kidding around about this auction. They were HIGHLY entertaining and definitely hilarious -- and they had more than a fair share of people wondering, "wait did they just say....??? "

Here are some of the highlights from the auction:

  • Beatles lunchbox with Trader Joe's Gift Card - $80.00
  • Tiny Furniture Blu-ray signed by Lena Dunham - $30.00
  • John Waters Holiday Show tickets + Hairspray DVD - $40.00
  • Public Enemy and Sufjan Stevens concert tickets - $97.00 (Awesome!!)
  • Urban Outfitters Gift Card - $ 65.00
  • Led Zeppelin package - $20.00
  • Beatles collectibles (in a Rolling Stones bag) - $25.00
  • Limited edition Record Store Day bag - $70.00
  • Special Amoeba in-store VIP pass - $80.00
  • Polyphonic Spree tickets with Hit Record book signed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt - $50.00
  • Amoeba special gift bag with random crazy stuff - $40.00
  • Yo Gabba Gabba package - $20.00
  • John Cale and Ty Segall concert tickets - $25.00

Cool stuff and some great bids! All together Garfunkel and Oates (and you guys!) helped raise $652.00 in bids, and together with the Amoeba match it comes to $1,304.00 to the wonderful organization Five Acres, which helps families and kids in need over the holidays. All in all it was a ROCKIN' good time. Thanks so much to Garfunkel and Oates for coming back to our charity auction and making this one of the most memorable Saturday auctions ever!
