This weekend doesn’t just celebrate the birth of the original Amoeba store in Berkeley, which was opened Nov. 17, 1990, on Telegraph Avenue. In 1997, on Nov. 15, the Amoeba mitosis happened—the cell split and we were TWO, as Amoeba opened an even bigger store where the old Rock & Bowl was on Haight Street in San Francisco. Then, on Nov. 17, 2001, the Amoebas gave birth to a WHOPPING GRANDBABY with Amoeba Music Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard. With hundreds of thousands of titles in a two-story building over an entire city block, it’s not only our biggest store but the biggest independent music store in the world! Find out even more about our stores and take video tours of each store here.

So come help us celebrate the birth of all three of our stores this weekend. It’s our party and we’ll give you 10% off if we want to.

Our 2012 Record Store Day T-shirt Designs Revealed

Posted by Amoebite, April 4, 2012 01:18pm | Post a Comment
Recently we held our first-ever design contest for our 2012 Record Store Day T-shirt. We were blown away by the creativity and effort everyone put into the contest...not to mention the sheer volume of entries! We received over 200 designs! It was a really tough decision but after much deliberation we are proud to reveal the two winning designs by Adam Thiesen and Erika Themaras!

You can pick up your limited edition T-shirt on Record Store Day, April 21st, at any Amoeba store. We'll be silk screening the shirts live at Amoeba Hollywood and Amoeba San Francisco thanks to our friends at Junk Food Clothing, Family Industries, Anti- / Epitaph Records and SF's Free Gold Watch!

See our full list of Record Store Day events.

Everyone awoke a little gloomy. It was our last day, and check-out time was only four hours away. Logan in-particular was not okay with this and sought out the front desk to plea our case. The result was a new check-out time of four o’clock, at no additional charge.

I’m not sure what Logan had to do to get this sweet deal; knowing her, they were probably just charmed, but that makes for a boring blog, so let’s pretend she seduced the owner’s wife, or at the very least threatened them with rad karate moves.


"Hit me with your best shot" - Logan in control

With only half a day left, the majority agreed that the best thing to do was give me a haircut.

Uh, wha...? Really? It’s that bad?

What I saw as my sexy, shaggy mop – so hip and suave was, unbeknownst to me, something akin to Eric Stoltz’ hot look in the movie “Mask”. Apparently I had been unwittingly turning Greek adventurers into stone with my mere hairdo. Who knew?


Bad hair daze: Eric Stoltz, Medusa, and me

Carrie was adamant. She was going to cut my hair. My boyfriend immediately switched to publicist mode, yelling demands and controlling events from his chaise lounge. “Short!” he kept shouting, “Short… short!”


BEFORE: Carrie assesses the situation


The Master Hair-stylist can adapt to any situation


Beauty and the Beast

My own opinions were merely tolerated as flights of fancy. I had been reduced to a pre-Suffragette woman with hopes of one day earning a living for herself, winning the right to vote, or at the very least, opening her own door without being seen as a dangerous lesbian.
