Amoeba Hollywood record store day

Amoeba Hollywood’s Record Store Day festivities continued on into this afternoon with awesome DJ sets, delicious food and RSD-themed activities. Read about the morning and watch our interview with the early bird collectors in line here. At noon, our friends from Family Industries started silk-screening special RSD 2015 designs onto tote bags and t-shirts, with the proceeds benefiting the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Starting at 1pm, some of our favorite Los Angeles-based musical artists got behind the turntables to provide the soundtrack for the day. Things kicked off with dream-pop duo Puro Instinct, who took to the decks to play a set of their favorite tunes in advance of their upcoming full-length release. Next up was Knxwledge (or KNX), a beatmaker whose Stones Throw debut drops on May 5. Across the street at Space15Twenty, a special TV on the Radio RSD Art Party kicked off, with guitar player Dave Sitek DJing while vocalist Tunde Adebimpe and Seeds artist Julian Gross drew caricatures. Also at Space15Twenty, Org Music and Shinola provided free Pabst Blue Ribbon, previews of RSD-exclusive titles and a rousing set from Mike Watt + the Secondmen and EvKain.

Back at Amoeba, caricature artist Rene sketched portraits while shoppers feasted on jackfruit burritos from Pure Luck Vegan and sipped refreshing lemonade from Hubert’s. Blur’s “Magic Whip” ice cream truck was greeted with cheers from an excited audience, who picked up a free scoop after showing off their Amoeba receipts and grabbed a “Lonesome Street” flexi disc when they told the truck’s crew the secret password (“Magic Whip”). And for a $1 a spin, customers took a chance at spinning the Amoeba Prize Wheel, proceeds from which benefited the Downtown Women’s Center. This Record Store Day has definitely been one for the books, and it's not over yet! Take a look at some of our photos from the day below.
