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:

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with AFI

Posted by Amoebite, March 29, 2017 12:13pm | Post a Comment

AFI What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

Many people around the world, including the members of the California rock/punk band AFI, were sad to learn of the passing of Alan Vega, half of the influential New York electropunk duo Suicide. "What a rough past year we had, because we lost Alan," says lead singer Davey Havok as he holds up a vinyl reissue of Suicide's self-titled debut. Havok considers the band "wildly ahead of its time and cutting edge in what they were doing with electronics and soundscapes." Davey, Adam, and Hunter from AFI went shopping at Amoeba Hollywood before their in-store performance in January, and they gave us a glimpse into the work of some of their influences, current interests, and musical peers.

AFI formed in Ukiah, CA while its members were still in high school. They released their full-length debut, Answer That and Stay Fashionable, in 1995. The current lineup of Davey Havok, Adam Carson, Hunter Burgan, and Jade Puget solidified in 1998. AFI has steadily released albums throughout their three decade-spanning career, but it wasn't till their 2000 LP, The Art of Drowning, that they found mainstream success and a slot in the Billboard Top 200.

AFI the Blood Album Amoeba MusicTheir next album, Sing the Sorrow, did even better; the album reached number five on the Top 200 and stayed on the charts for just shy of a year. A string of hits followed, with Decemberunderground (2006), Crash Love (2009) and Burials (2013) all faring well in the Billboard charts. The band released AFI [The Blood Album] in mid-January 2017. AFI will be performing at select festival dates in North America and the United Kingdom this spring/summer.

New Amoeba Green Room Session with Weyes Blood

Posted by Amoebite, March 26, 2017 01:40pm | Post a Comment

Weyes Blood Amoeba Green Room Session

Brooklyn based singer/songwriter Natalie Mering, also known as Weyes Blood, stopped by Amoeba Hollywood for an intimate performance in our green room before heading out on her (mostly) west coast Weyes Blood Front Row Seat to Earthtour, which will end March 30th at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. While Mering's recorded output is already hauntingly minimal, without studio or live accompaniment her performance was singularly pure.

Mering starts off with "Generation Why," from her latest LP, Front Row Seat To Earth. The sincerity of her ethereal vocals are paired with a sarcastic wit, as she sings lyrics like "Y-O-L-O, why?." Up next is the subtle epic "Be Free," a delicate but confident break-up waltz. Mering ends her session with "In The Beginning," off her 2015 EP Cardamom Times. Even without the organ and layered vocals her performance is as hypnotic as the studio version.
