Amoeba Hollywood: A Photo History (Part 3)

Amoeba Hollywood

We are looking back at the amazing history we have seen over the last 19 years in Los Angeles. Although we are not able to give the building the sendoff it deserves, it's our hope that you'll find some joy, some memories, and some solace in these images. So much as happened at Amoeba since we opened at 6400 Sunset Blvd that it's impossible to do it justice in one piece! View Part One and Part Two of our photo history series celebrating and commemorating our rich history. 

Part Three focuses on 2010-2011 and starts with a party: our annual Fat Tueday parade inside the aisles of Amoeba and out onto the streets!! Our love for New Orleans goes waaaay back and has been cemented through our charity auctions and other fundraising efforts to support Tipitina's and the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic throughout the years. If you haven't been to a Mardi Gras celebration at Amoeba, you don't know what you're missing! Both our staff and customers get involved with the fun, whether it's bringing a horn and playing "When The Saints Go Marching In" or catching beads from our makeshift balcony by the DJ booth or marching around the block, much to the surprise of passing cars.
