Record Store Day 2017 at Amoeba Hollywood

After a very busy morning celebrating the tenth annual Record Store Day here at Amoeba Hollywood, the festivities were still going strong into the afternoon hours. We moved our remaining RSD exclusives (and the accompanying line) indoors, and the line snaked through the aisles. Inside the store, we had DJ sets from Harriet Brown (1pm), Gabby Moreno (3pm), and Cut Chemist (5pm). At 2pm, the legendary Seymour Stein of Sire Records and Warner Brothers fame joined us for a signing of the new Just Say 50 box set released for Record Store Day. We also had four very cool, limited edition RSD17 designs and our friends at Family Industries were here once again doing live silk screening on t-shirts and tote bags. And, of course, we gave of hundreds of free gift bags with purchase. Plus, today we released a new, limited edition Amoeba shirt!

Outside, the party continued! We were joined by LA Weekly, who gave out loads of cool schwag, and The Impossible Project, who set up an ultra cool Polaroid photo booth. Customers tried their luck with our prize wheel for $1 a spin; all proceeds benefit the Downtown Women's Center. Rene from Draw the Line Entertainment whipped up caricatures for kids and Weruva offered RSD-themed airbrush tattoos. (They also gave out samples of pet food.) Delicious Pizza was slinging slices for sale, and you could sample tasty (free) treats from Hubert's Lemonade and Body Factory. The Warner Bros. Truck was parked outside, offering complimentary ice cream and music treats.. At 5pm, we gave away some really nice speakers and headphones from Pioneer DJ

Here are some photo highlights from the day:
