Record Store Day 2018 at Amoeba Hollywood

As the line snaked around the corner and happy record shoppers scored some of the coolest picks from the menu of exclusive RSD titles, Record Store Day 2018 at Amoeba Hollywood kicked into high gear. Outside the store, shoppers were treated to free beverages from Soylent and Hubert's Lemonade, temporary tattoos, dog and cat food samples from Weruva, pizza from Delicious Pizza, and ice cream from Ice Cream Ian and his truck, courtesy of Warner Bros.

Music fans took their chances with our fantastic prize wheel, with each $1 spin raising funds for the Downtown Women's Center while others sat for Draw the Line Entertainment's caricature artist.
