The Button Quest will start at Groundwork Coffee (1501 N. Cahuenga Blvd.) across the street from Amoeba Hollywood. Participants will then be given directions about where to go to pick up all six exclusive Empire Records buttons. If fans want to take advantage of Empire Records-related dares and photo ops, they can share those pictures on social media with the hashtags #RexManningDay and #ButtonQuest. The Button Quest folks are giving out prizes for the most creative photos!

Rex Manning Day culminates with a cosplay midnight screening of Empire Records at the Vista Theatre in Los Feliz organized by Nerds Like Us. Tickets for the screening are $11.50 and will be available online and at the theater box office.

Record Store Crawl returns to Los Angeles this summer! Just what is a Record Store Crawl, you ask? Imagine journeying from record store to record store surrounded by dozens of your fellow vinyl enthusiasts (and potential new friends!), including The Regrettes, in an air-conditioned party bus. That dream can become a reality.

On Saturday, July 22, board the crawl bus for a full day's worth of music-themed festivities, including swag, discounts, giveaways, and visits to some of the finest record stores in Los Angeles: Amoeba Hollywood, the Record Parlour, Permanent Records, Cosmic Vinyl, and High Fidelity. Plus, you'll check out a special art gallery exhibit at Mr. Musichead.

Attendees can also look forward to lunch and Pabst Blue Ribbon courtesy of Masa of Echo Park, a gift bag containing a mystery vinyl LP and 7", Metallica and David Bowie slipmats, a limited edition 2017 Record Store Crawl poster, and other goodies. Please note this event is 21+.

The Record Store Crawl sold out last year, so grab your tickets while you can!

Recap: Charity Auction for MALDEF with Martin Moreno

Posted by Amoebite, April 3, 2017 10:42am | Post a Comment

charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood with Martin Moreno

On Saturday, April 1st our guest auctioneer, comedian Martin Moreno, held the gavel with a firm hand as he auctioned off a cool array of fun stuff to benefit the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, which needs our help now more than ever. As Martin said "It is a great time to be brown in America!" (It was April 1st, right??)

Martin's comedy career began in his early 30s, and his twice-divorced take on "soul mates" and his personal journeys molded him into the hilarious, irreverent, badass standup comic he is today. He's co-hosted Comedy Central's Gabriel Iglesias Presents: Stand Up Revolution, voiced a character Hey, It's Fluffy!, and toured the U.S. and beyond gaining a loyal hardcore following. Catch him on Season 3 of Fluffy Breaks Even on FUSE in July with Gabriel Iglesias and follow him on Twitter: @martincomic.

Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (or MALDEF for short) was founded in 1968 and is the nation’s leading Latino legal civil rights organization. Often described as the “law firm of the Latino community,” MALDEF promotes social change through advocacy, communications, community education, and litigation in the areas of education, employment, immigrant rights, and political access. Their approach combines advocacy, educational outreach, and litigation strategies to achieve socio-economic change.

Here are some of the highlights and bids from today's auction:
