King KruleUPDATE 9/13 at 1:30PM: Amoeba Hollywood is SOLD OUT of wristbands for this show.

 

King Krule is in LA for 2 sold out shows at The Echo, but you can also catch him at a special all-ages show at Space15Twenty (across the street from Amoeba) on Saturday, September 14th at 2pm!

To get into the show, purchase Six Feet Beneath The Moon on CD or LP at Amoeba Hollywood starting on Friday, September 13th and you'll get you a pair of wristbands to the show. Limit one pair of wristbands per customer, while supplies last. Or follow @space15twenty on Instagram for additional details on attending the show.

Six Feet Beneath The Moon is the long-anticipated debut album from Southeast London's King Krule (aka Archy Marshall). He broke out in 2011, at the tender age of 16, with his eponymous EP released on True Panther Sounds. King Krule's sound, a hypnotic mixture indebted to working class British songsmiths like Billy Bragg as much as to NY No-Wave and hip hop, carries a maturity and depth far beyond his years.

Thanks to Your Generosity, We're Sending $600 to Downtown Women's Center

Posted by Amoebite, August 14, 2013 09:22pm | Post a Comment

Pancake BreakfastOn Sunday morning, August 11, hundreds of hungry Angelenos descended upon the historic Vibiana downtown for the third annual LA Weekly Pancake Breakfast! Curated by Evan Kleiman, restaurateur and host of Good Food on KCRW, attendees were treated to samples from over 20 local restaurants. Amoeba was on hand with our prize wheel, making friends, passing out our own (non-edible, I'm afraid) goodies and raising money for the Downtown Women's Center.

Amoebite Michele'le was our pro behind the prize wheel, encouraging people to win "big money" and avoid the "whammy's." For only $1 a spin, folks could win gift certificates to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, Stella Barra (the yummy new pizzeria next to Amoeba), surprise gifts and more. For a $5 donation to DWC, people received a complimentary Amoeba tote bag or t-shirt. One amazing woman even donated $25!

It wasn't just about the food on Sunday. Country singer Lynda Kay stopped by after wooing her fans with a performance, posing for a few photos and signing autographs at our booth.

Free Screening of "A Band Called Death" Documentary in Los Angeles June 20

Posted by Amoebite, June 5, 2013 01:37pm | Post a Comment

A Band Called Death posterWe are proud to present a free advance screening of a new rock documentary, A Band Called Death, at The Cinefamily in Los Angeles on June 20! The documentary, released by Drafthouse Films and hitting theaters nationwide on June 28, is 42 years in the making.

In Detroit, 1971, three teenage brothers, Bobby, Dannis and David Hackney, dabbled in playing funk music, but after attending an Alice Cooper performance, they transformed into an entirely different band...a band called Death. Their sound was tight, compelling and formidably unique, but they were rejected by record companies until eventually someone reached out to the group with an offer...if they agreed to change their name. They declined. Years later the band sold their instruments and disbanded, with their recordings collecting dust in an attic. Then in 2008, their songs were released online, unbeknownst to the band, and fans went crazy for it.  This is one of the most unlikely true stories you’ll ever hear, and one of the greatest triumphs in rock history.

Death albums have been picked by numerous bands in our What's In My Bag? series. See what the Crystal Antlers and Steve Agee (from The Sarah Silverman Program) said about Death in their videos. 

To attend the advance screening at Cinefamily, RSVP here. You may RSVP for up to 2 tickets. Please note that RSVP does NOT guarantee entry, as seating is available on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early to secure your seats.
