Pokemon Go at Amoeba Hollywood

Everywhere you turn lately, people are talking about or playing Pokémon Go. It's a new augmented reality game you play on your cell phone that combines the real world with the virtual Pokémon world. Although it just launched last week, it's already more popular than Tinder.

After tons of trainers (as the users are called) were seen playing it on their phones while walking around Amoeba Hollywood, we discovered we're actually a gym in the game! A gym is where you go to battle other teams to either claim the gym as your own or defend it against attacking trainers. Plus, you get experience points by battling, which gets you more levels and more powerful Pokémon. However, to battle at a gym you need to get to Level 5 in the game. Confused? Read more about how the game works.

We're getting Pokémon Go fever like everyone else, so we're giving trainers a discount while you're playing at Amoeba Hollywood! Just take a screenshot of a Pokémon you caught inside Amoeba Hollywood and show it to the folks at the information counter on the main floor. We'll give you a $3 off coupon for your purchase of $5 or more. (Limit 1 per person per day. Can't be combined with other offers or discounts. Not valid on Offer ends July 19.)

Come catch 'em all!

Introducing...Our New Series: First Show Stories

First Show Stories

We're excited to reveal our newest web series, First Show Stories! Our film crew at Amoeba Hollywood has been chatting with some of the artists who've stopped by the store lately to learn more about their very first concert-going experiences. The first three installments in the series showcase memories from Nick Harmer of Death Cab for Cutie, the Tweedy family, and A Nameless Ghoul from Ghost. Check out the stories below to get a glimpse into experiences that are alternately mortifying, exhilarating, and inspiring.

In this video, Nick Harmer talks about the "fairly traumatic" experience of going to see R.E.M. on their Green tour, describing how he saved his money and slept outside in line for tickets -- only to be one-upped by his mom.


The men of Tweedy -- Jeff, Spencer, and Sam -- talk about their vastly different first concert experiences; for Jeff, it was an early Stray Cats gig while Spencer says "it was probably a Wilco show," and Sam talks about seeing The Rolling Stones. Featuring family friend Steve Albini's bad life advice for kids!
