Posted by Amoebite, October 24, 2013 04:33pm | Post a Comment

Here at Amoeba we love Halloween! Our employees dress up, our customers dress up. Even our dogs dress up! All three of our stores join in the celebration with guest DJs, costume contests, and treats for the kids. Make sure to get all your shopping done early as all Amoeba stores close early at 7:00pm on Halloween.

 Amoeba Hollywood has festivities 3-6pm on Thursday, October 31st. Bring the kids to Amoeba for some Halloween treats - costumes are most definitely encouraged! At 3pm, Folerio, international DJ of the people, will spin a hauntingly sexy Halloween set! (Doesn't Folerio look like the long lost Italian cousin of Peanut Butter Wolf?) Then at 5pm, it's our 3rd annual Dog Costume ContestIf you've never experienced a dog costume contest, now is the time. Enter your pooch into our doggie costume contest for a chance to win Gift Cerificates from BlueCollar Working Dog, Amoeba prizes and more.

To celebrate this year’s Record Store Day, we held a contest to give away Denon Turntables to two first place winners and our grand prize of a turntable, choice vinyl (180 gram, limited-edition titles) and a $100 gift certificate to Amoeba.

We’re pleased to announce the winners. Laura G. won the grand prize after entering at Amoeba Hollywood during the recent performance by Julieta Venegas.

Our two first-place winners came from our San Francisco and Berkeley stores. In SF, Cooper K. was our big winner. In Berkeley, it was Sandy R.

Congratulations to all of the winners! And thanks to everyone who entered. We received more than 10,000 entries, making it one of our top three contests ever.

Our turntables come courtesy of Needle Doctor, in partnership with Filter magazine.

Didn't make it to Record Store Day? We still have RSD releases for sale in-store and online.

Our next contest is for two pairs of tickets to see Icelandic songstress Bjork at either the Craneway Pavillion in Richmond, Calif., or the Hollywood Palladium. Enter here now.
