Rise Against Amoeba Hollywood

Zach Blair and Joe Principe of Rise Against stopped by recently to grab some records before their sold out show at The Hollywood Palladium.  The Chicago based band, whose other members include Tim McIlrath and Brandon Barnes, formed in 1999 and have since proven to be one of the most exciting and relevant punk bands around today. After releasing 2001's The Unraveling and 2003's Revloutions Per Minute on Fat Wreck Chords, the band achieved major label success with 2004's Siren Song of the Counter Culture, released on Dreamworks/Geffen. 2014 saw the release of The Black Market, for which the band has been touring worldwide.Rise Against The Black Market

With picks like Agnostic Front's Live at CBGB and Dischord 1981: The Year in 7"s Zach and Joe clue us in to some of Rise Against's major influences, while picks like Swami John Reis and The Blind Shakes' Modern Surf Classics and Ty Segall's Manipulator give us a taste of their more current interests. Zach, a Texas native, also recommends some bands from his home state while Joe gives us a surprising '80s pop pick and even demonstrates how to drink coffee out of a Ramones Rocket to Russia mug.

Ty Segall Tickets at Amoeba Hollywood

Amoeba Hollywood is proud to announce a partnership with Teragram Ballroom in which we’ll be the only place in town to buy physical tickets besides the venue itself. And we’re kicking things off with tickets to garage rock overlord Ty Segall’s two sold-out shows at the Teragram Jan. 15-16! We will have a limited number of tickets to both nights for sale in-store at Amoeba Hollywood starting Thursday, Jan. 7 at 10:30 a.m.

Tickets will be available for all shows at the Teragram the day they are announced with our low $2 ticket service fee. We will have a small amount of tickets for every show available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Teragram Ballroom has been lovingly created by the same folks who own the Mercury Lounge and Bowery Ballroom in New York City. With a capacity of 600, it’s one of the best places to see an intimate show in Los Angeles.

Teragram also has a great selection of beers, including Lagunitas IPA, Angel City IPA and 805 on tap in addition to a full bar. If you're in their neighborhood during the day, they have a cafe that serves breakfast and lunch items as well as Lavazza coffee from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. has a complete list of upcoming shows.

10 albums to look for in 2016

Now that the year's over, it’s time to look ahead into 2016. There are already several exciting releases announced for the new year, so here’s your preview of what’s coming out in the next couple of months.

David Bowie Blackstar
Out Jan. 8

david bowie blackstar lpDavid Bowie’s upcoming 25th album will be released on the venerable artist’s 69th birthday. It’s a seven-song release featuring a few extended tracks, like the nearly 10-minute electro-orchestral opus that is the title track, which also is being used as the opening song for the TV series “The Last Panthers.” So far, we’ve also heard “Lazarus” and “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime),” all of which are fueling anticipation for this being one of the best albums of Bowie’s later career.


Chairlift Moth
Out Jan. 22

Ty Segall Emotional Mugger video

ty segall emotional mugger lpBy now, you must know Ty Segall is a busy guy, recording something like 96 albums a year between his various projects (that’s actually closer to four or so, but who’s counting). Still, despite having just released a new album of smashing proto-metal with Fuzz, forming several new bands and re-releasing his T. Rex cover albums as a set on Black Friday, he’s also got just a plain ol’ new album on the way (so the next time you’re feeling spread thin … think of Ty Segall and get to work!). Emotional Mugger is due Jan. 22 on Drag City and was announced by sending a VHS tape of the album to various editors. Pitchfork says they got a copy of the 1993 film My Life at the end of the album, as well as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan on another tape. But no worries if you don’t have a VHS player anymore—the album will be released on all the normal formats. We haven’t heard any songs yet, but apparently an emotional mugger is a “non-verbal and non-physical emotional exchange,” as we’ve gleaned from this faux-educational video starring Segall.
