We are thrilled to announce the 300th episode of our What's In My Bag? series! We have definitely come a long way in our six seasons and we are so very grateful to our faithful WIMB supporters and fans for watching, commenting, and sharing our videos. We've discovered a lot of new music and learned a ton through the series, and from what you say to us on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, it's clear that you guys have too. Thank you to all of you who love "What's In My Bag?" just as much as we do! 

Pretty Lights

To help celebrate this milestone, our 300th episode features DJ/Producer Pretty Lights, aka Derek Vincent Smith of Fort Collins, Colorado. Known for his sample-based electronic hip hop productions, he is one of the most talked about producers in the scene. Smith is currently on tour promoting his fourth album, A Color Map Of The Sun, with dates across North America and the United Kingdom. In addition to performing under the PL moniker, he also runs his own label, Pretty Lights Music, which is home to seven artists including fellow Colorado native Paul Basic and PLM co-founder Michael Menert.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode & Charity Auction with Comedian Kurt Braunohler

Posted by Amoebite, August 28, 2013 06:46pm | Post a Comment
Kurt B

Who starts a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to tell a joke? The super hilarious Kurt Braunohler does! Braunohler asked fans and supporters to help him raise $4,000 so he could skywrite the sentence, "How do I land?" above Los Angeles.  What a genius way to have people be in on the joke! Not only did he rasie over 4k, but the video of the plane skywriting the message went viral. The real genius might be the fact that Braunohler's debut comedy album is titled, How Do I Land? and the cover is a photo of the skywriting joke. Who needs a publicity campaign with a stunt like that? Kudos to Kurt for finding a way to market an album while simultaneously having fans help him tell an awesome joke!

Join us at Amoeba Hollywood on Saturday, September 7th for our monthly charity auction hosted by Kurt Braunohler. This is one big special day! Not only will Kurt be hosting and celebrating his debut comedy album, but prcoeeds from the auction will benefit Free Arts For Abused Children - a volunteer organization that has brought arts programs to abused, neglected and homeless children for 30 years. But that's not all, to help commemorate what would have been singer/songwriter Elliott Smith's 44th birthday, Amoeba will be donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of any of Elliott Smith’s catalog (including digital) to Free Arts for Abused Children for the month of August. So, come out for a great cause, funny jokes and lots of good music!Elliot Smith benefit at Amoeba
