left my  heart in the libraryBeginning December 10, the Library Foundation of Los Angeles will launch The Library Store On Wheels, a mobile version of downtown LA's Central Library store. Much like the main store, the truck will feature a unique, curated collection of literary-inspired gifts. We're excited to announce that The Library Store on Wheels will visit Amoeba Hollywood during its inaugural week on Wednesday, December 19 from 2-6pm!

In addition to finding gifts for your literary loved ones (or yourself!), your purchase will directly benefit the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, which helps support free and critical library programs, resources and services for millions of people across Los Angeles.

If you can't make it to Amoeba Hollywood on 12/19, check out the Library Store On Wheels' complete schedule for its first week. Be sure to follow The Library Store on Twitter for updates about the truck's locations and hours.

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!
