New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Lance Henriksen at Amoeba Hollywood

Some of the coolest people visit us at Amoeba Hollywood. We had the utmost pleasure of hanging out with Sci Fi/Horror film fan favorite, Lance Henriksen. Many of you know Lance from his character Bishop, the Android he famously played in the Aliens films franchise. Lance hung out and shopped around for a few things. He's got some pretty interesting picks such as the classic French drama 400 Blows, and who would have guessed Lance digs Hip Hop? See for yourself!

Not only is Lance Henriksen a staple when it comes to awesome Science Fiction films, but he is now a bonafide comic book author! Henriksen and co-author Joseph Maddrey held a special signing at Amoeba Hollywood to unveil the 5 issue series, To Hell You Ride (DC Comics). To Hell You Ride starts off by introducing the character Two Dogs, a forgotten Native American plagued by booze and his disregard for society. Two Dogs is reawakened by the spirit of his ancestors and with their guidance he is led to avenge his land and his people. There's a flesh eating curse, mad scientists, and lots of bloddy horror. Tom Mandrake brings it all together with some amazing illustrations. It's a good one! The fans came out to support Lance and his new comic and everyone had a blast! If you missed all the fun you can check out some photos of the signing below.

Bobby Womack Comes to Amoeba

Bobby WomackSoul legend Bobby Womack is appearing this Friday, June 15th at Amoeba Hollywood at 6 p.m. where he’ll be signing copies of his excellent new album, The Bravest Man in the Universe, which is out today.

Produced by former Gorillaz and Blur frontman Damon Albarn as well as XL Recordings founder Richard Russell, on Womack’s first album of new material since 1994’s Resurrection, to say he sounds reinvigorated would be an understatement. Albarn, and Russell’s careful but not overly cautious production work helps Womack stand front-and-center over trip-hoppy beats and beatific synths. Womack cries out on “Sweet Baby Mine” like a man reborn. The title track, meanwhile, begins elegiac, as Womack extols the virtue of forgiveness, before breaking into a steady, string-laden groove that lets Womack do his thing with minimal distraction. A duet with Lana del Rey, “Dayglo Reflection,” is a bit of young-meets-old fun, but it’s still classy, with del Rey’s sultry voice breaks nicely complementing Womack’s rough hues. The headturner here, though, is closer “Jubilee (Don’t Let Nobody Turn You Around).” Womack is on fire as he sings in terrifying ecstasy over a big, nasty synth groove. The album is an excellent restatement from one of rock’s great survivors, and gives Womack a brilliant new palette from which to paint.
