Charity Auction Recap

On Saturday, April 4th we welcomed back comedian, raconteur and jet-ski marathoner Kurt Braunohler as our guest auctioneer! All proceeds from our April auction went to fund the Kids Ride and Activities at the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition River Ride happening Sunday, June 28th at the Autry Center in Griffith Park. 

Los Angeles River RideThe LA County Bicycle Coalition is an amazing organization that helps promote bike culture in Los Angeles, as well as engaging in a wide variety of policy, advocacy, education, and community building work to make the streets of Los Angeles County more bike friendly for all types of cyclists. 

This was the third charity auction our friend Kurt Braunohler has hosted for us. If you're not familiar with Kurt, check out his Comedy Central web series Roustabout which follows his epic 7-day charity mission riding a jet ski from Chicago to New Orleans to raise money to send 500 goats and 1,000 chickens to Africa (via Heifer International), and spread as much joy and absurdity as possible along the way.

His debut comedy album How Do I Land? made AV Club, Paste Magazine, Village Voice, and Time Out New York's Best Of lists. His popular podcast The K Ohle airs weekly on the Nerdist Network. And you can find Kurt every Monday night at The Virgil in LA where he co-hosts the live comedy variety show Hot Tub with his comedy partner Kristen Schaal

New "What's in My Bag?" Episode With The Decemberists

Posted by Amoebite, April 2, 2015 11:55am | Post a Comment

The Decemberists

The Decemberists formed in 2000 when Colin Meloy (vocals/guitar) moved from Montana to Portland, OR, where he subsequently met Chris Funk (guitar/multi-instrumentalist), Jenny Conlee Decemberists(keyboads / piano / accordion / Hammond organ), Nate Query (bass), and John Moen (drums). Named after the 1825 Decembrist revolt in Imperial Russia and inspired by the moodiness of the month itself, an early incarnation of the band self-released its debut EP, 5 Songs, in 2001. The group's first full-length, Castaways and Cutouts, was released via Hush Records in 2002. The band then signed to Kill Rock Stars for 2003's Her Majesty the Decemberists and 2005's Picaresque. In 2006, the Decemberists made the leap to Capitol Records, releasing a handful of well-received albums. In January 2015, the band's seventh studio album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, hit stores, followed by a lengthy North American tour.

milo greene red bull sound select

Amoeba has curated the next Red Bull Sound Select show in L.A., featuring electro-poppers Milo Greene.

The show, which is 21+, takes place Wednesday, April 29 at The Echo. RSVP for a $3 entry. (RSVP does not guarantee entry; plan to arrive early.) It’s $12 without an RSVP at the door.

Milo Greene features the work of four very talented people. On their latest album, Control, Marlana Sheetz takes the lead for the cool Hollywood dance-pop of “White Lies,” sitting nicely alongside likeminded artists such as HAIM and Jessie Ware, while the male-fronted songs from her three bandmates are no less beguiling, as “On the Fence” draws influence from the likes of A-ha for a smart and instantly pleasurable new wave-jam.

They’re joined at this show by L.A.-based Avid Dancer, the indie pop-rock project helmed by Jacob Summers. Summers grew up an outsider to popular music in a devoutly Christian household. After serving in the Marines for four years, Summers has since come into his own as a musician, touring with the likes of Hamilton Leithauser, Cold War Kids and Warpaint. Hear the soulful “Stop Playing With My Heart” below:
