Charity Auction recap

The amazingly smart and hilarious DC Pierson returned to Amoeba Hollywood on Saturday, October 1st to host our charity auction for Rock The Vote! DC has presided over our auction before so we were ready for hilarity and big bids, and he delivered.

"Can I hear $60.00 for democracy?! Let's get some bids going for Rock The Vote!!"

DC Pierson is a comedian and author of the novels The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep And Never Had To and Crap Kingdom. He is in a group called DERRICK Comedy which made the film Mystery Team. He's been seen in the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier and on TV shows like Community and Key & Peele. He is absolutely one of our very favorite auctioneers of all time! His skills as an auctioneer were in full force as he offered up a crazy array of concert tickets, collectibles, and gift certificates from our amazing neighbors, and other things you never knew you had to have. As always, we matched all winning bids up to $1,000, which means we doubled the money going to benefit Rock The Vote.

Some of the goodies up for auction this time and the bids they got:

Catfish & the Bottlemen What's In My Bag?

Van and Bondy from British rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen went record shopping at Amoeba Hollywood recently and shared a few of their favorite lyricists, from Father John Misty to Eels, and picked up a fantastic mix of rock, jazz, film music, psych and more.

Catfish & the Bottlemen The Ride

Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in Llandudno, Wales by Ryan Evan "Van" McCann. He was later joined by Benjamin Blakeway, Robert Hall, and Johnny Bond. The band is named after Catfish the Bottleman, a busker McCann frequently encountered during his childhood in Sydney, Australia. They got their start by playing in parking lots after other big name indie acts finished their shows. In 2013, the band signed to Communion Records, later signing to Island for their debut studio album, 2014's The Balcony.

In May of this year, the band released their sophomore LP, The Ride, via Capitol Records. The album peaked at number 28 on the US Billboard Top 200 charts. They also took home the award for British Breakthrough Act at the 2016 Brit Awards. The band is currently on tour in the United States, including opening a few dates with Mumford & Sons.

DJ Spinna What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

"I'm gonna give away a little b-boy secret...this record by Cerrone, 'Look For Love,' is a very popular b-boy break," says DJ Spinna of the 7" released by the Cotillion label. But be careful, he warns us, sometimes they edit the breaks out of the singles. The accomplished and much sought after DJ was recently at Amoeba Hollywood, giving away some great record collecting advice and offering up killer recommendations.

Wonder-full LABrooklyn-born hip-hop producer DJ Spinna is a genre-bender whose work dabbles in rap, soul, funk, electronica, and jazz.
