Death Cab For Cutie Wants To Give You A Free Burrito at Amoeba SF, 8/17

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, August 15, 2018 01:00pm | Post a Comment

In celebration of the release of Death Cab For Cutie's Thank You For Today, come in to Amoeba SF on Death Cab For Cuties, Thank You For Todayrelease date (this Friday, August 17) at 4:30pm and get a FREE BURRITO (while quantities last) with purchase of the new album OR when you show us your DCFC shirt, tattoo, or ticket stub! No kidding!

Although Death Cab for Cutie can't be there, you can enjoy a burrito on them. DCFC loves their fans and they also love burritos, so Friday is all about both at Amoeba SF.

Thank You for Today is the sound of Death Cab for Cutie both expanding and refining; a band twenty years into its evolution, still uncovering new curves in its signatures, new sonic corners to explore. The Seattle band’s ninth studio album stands alongside classic Death Cab for Cutie albums including their 1998 debut Something About Airplanes and 2003’s masterful Transatlanticism as a definitive collection -- ten tracks that are by turns beautiful and dynamic, and darkly anthemic and bittersweet.

Wallows - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

LA pop/rock band Wallows performed at Amoeba Hollywood to celebrate the release of their debut EP Spring and beforehand we got a chance to talk with them about some of their favorite records, including David Bowie's final album, Black Star. "To be 68 years old and making this album," Dylan Minnette marveled, "[it's] completely game-changing, and unlike anything I've ever heard." The singer/guitarist considered the record one of the artist's best, saying, "David Bowie went out with one of his greatest albums in his entire catalog."

Los Angeles-based Wallows consists of Braeden Lemasters (vocals/guitars), Dylan Minnette (vocals/guitars), and Cole Preston (drums). Lemasters and Minnette, both child actors, met through their work in the film industry, later inviting Preston to play music with them. They have been Wallows - Spring - Amoeba Musicperforming in bands together since they were eleven-year-old students at the San Fernando Valley music school Join the Band. After collaborating musically for almost a decade, Wallows signed to Atlantic, releasing their debut recording, the Spring EP, (fittingly) in spring 2018.
