Father John Misty pop-up shop at Amoeba Hollywood

Amoeba Hollywood is hosting a Father John Misty pop-up shop Wednesday, October 14 through Sunday, October 18! Filth Mart is designing a limited-edition t-shirt in collaboration with Father John MIsty to celebrate the occasion and you can purchase it – along with FJM limited-edition vinyl, "Innocence" by Misty perfume, hats, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and posters – at the pop-up shop. Don't miss taking a selfie with a cardboard standup Josh Tillman! 

Father John Misty is town for two sold out shows at the Wiltern October 16th and 17th. We're giving away tickets to both shows on Twitter and in-store at Amoeba Hollywood starting 10/14. You can also win a pair of tickets to the October 17th show on Amoeba.com. Enter here.

The pop-up shop is in support of Father John Misty’s newest album, I Love You, Honeybear. This fearless second record builds on his folk-rock sound with orchestral touches, genre diversions, and direct, conversational lyrics that cut through singer/songwriter cliches.

In addition to the pop-up shop on Saturday, October 17, we're also having a sidewalk sale 12-5pm and our big Super Saturday Sale (all day). Don't miss this chance to score some huge deals that day while you're checking out the pop-up shop. Due to the limited nature of the Father John Misty pop-up, these items do not apply to the Super Saturday Sale.

Nick Thune Hosts a Charity Auction at Amoeba Hollywood

On Saturday, October 3rd we had a great time at Amoeba Hollywood with our first-time host, comedian and actor Nick Thune! For this month's charity auction, we teamed up again with the awesome folks at NerdMelt and raised money for our friends at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Nick hails from the Great Northwest (Seattle), where he spent his early years growing up. His absurdest view and deadpan wit combined with the soothing lull of his guitar, have distinguished his unique style of comedy. He has appeared on the Tonight Show eight times, and on each occasion, he won. Nick has also appeared on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and has his own Comedy Central special. His comedy special, Folk Hero, is available on Netflix and iTunes and you can get a copy on vinyl at Amoeba, of course. 

Silverlake Conservatory of Music

Nick auctioned off a vast and crazy array of concert tickets, gift certificates to local hot spots, and random promotional stuff---with all proceeds benefitting the Silverlake Conservatory of Music's scholarship programs. Their mission is to facilitate basic music education, focusing on the youth of the community while welcoming everyone to participate.The Conservatory offers private music lessons at a reasonable cost and grants scholarships to children in need, providing free lessons and instruments. The study of music enriches not only the life of the student, but the community and society as well.

Show Recap: Peaches at Amoeba Hollywood

You missed a wild one if you weren’t at Amoeba Hollywood Thursday evening.

peaches rub lpElectro-pop goddess Peaches lamented eating cheez-its as she emerged from backstage. Wiping her hands on her tasteful (by Peaches’ standards) green shirt-dress, the singer launched right into a short set of songs from her latest release, Rub, an album that aims squarely for the controversy button like a mosquito drawn to a bloody nipple (listen to Rub and you’ll understand why such graphic imagery is appropriate).

She whipser-rapped lyrics that swirl together the political with gender role play over a minimalist electro throb on the title track. She twerked over the lo-fi hip hop beat of “Dick in the Air,” swinging the mic and starting a dance party in the process. For her third and final track, Peaches invited a special guest onstage: Jarvis Cocker. (Or at least a cardboard cut-out of the Pulp singer.) With an Amoebite helping Jarvis dance his cardboard heart out, Peaches reveled in the raunchy “Vaginoplasty” and unleashed her powerful singing voice, an oft-overlooked tool in her arsenal. With that, Peaches was gone … but not without one final shock, pulling her pants down to reveal underwear fitted with a nipple.
