Watch the New Amoeba Green Room Session with Youth Code

Youth Code Amoeba Green Room Session

LA industrial duo Youth Code recently performed a blistering Green Room Session at Amoeba Hollywood, just two days before their show at The Toubadour with Tribulation and Horrendous. Playing songs off their latest release, Commitment To Complications (out now on Dais Records), the combination of Sara Taylor's pummeling vocals and Ryan George's darkly driving beats turned the usually intimate and cozy green room into a sinister madhouse.

First up is "Avengement." With its funky bass lines and collage of sounds Sara Taylor's voice tears the room apart. Next is "Anagnorisis," which starts off like a Cliff Martinez soundtrack but soon turns into something more akin to a Trent Reznor track. Ryan George joins in on the chorus screaming, "This is a trigger, this is despair!" The set ends with "Transitions," a pulsing scorcher that'll make you want to find a mosh pit. 

Youth Code will be starting off the new year with a U.S. tour. Catch them in San Francisco, Jan 27 at Thee Parkside and in Los Angeles, Jan. 28 at Union Nightclub.

Recap: Charity Auction for the LA Food Bank with Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal

Posted by Amoebite, December 6, 2016 04:05pm | Post a Comment

Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal

On Saturday, December 3rd we had the inimitable Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal tackle the gavel duties at Amoeba Hollywood's famous charity auction. Kurt has been here many times before and helped us raise tons of money for great and worthy causes, but this was Kristen's first soiree into the fun and unpredictable realm of anxious anticipation and frenzied bidding. It didn't take long for her mad skills and silver-tongued auctioneering to come right on out. 

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank

Kurt and Kristen brilliantly and hilariously paved the way for one of our most successful auctions ever! They auctioned off a crazy array of concert tickets, collectibles, gift certificates from our amazing neighbors and partners, and other things you never knew you had to have (a giant 25 foot Adele banner anyone??). 

All proceeds from this month's auction benefited the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which feeds more than half a million people each month—12% of those are over the age of 65, and 25% are kids under 18. It is an amazing organization that we have had the honor of working with for the past few years. These are two of the funniest people on the planet and they rocked the crowd on Saturday!

Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen live at the VirgilKristen, who has appeared in Flight of the Conchords and is currently the voice of Louise Belcher on Bob's Burgers, graciously signed some DVDs and a FUNKO doll of her character--which then garnered big money at the auction. Kurt and Kristen were celebrating their new double LP from Kill Rock Stars, Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen Live at the Virgil. Recorded live over two nights at The Virgil in Los Angeles at their long-running comedy variety show Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Peter Bjorn and John

Peter Bjorn and John What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

What do soul performer/producer Anderson .Paak and indie rockers Whitney have in common? Well, for starters they both feature singing drummers and, secondly, they're both bands that Peter Moren of Peter Bjorn and John happened to see in concert on the same day. While the styles of music were quite different from each other he was struck by the unusual similarity in their vocal drummers, as well as the quality of each show. Peter picked up both of their latest LPs here at Amoeba Hollywood during the band's recent visit to the store.

Peter Bjorn and John Breakin' Point Amoeba MusicSwedish indie pop trio Peter Bjorn and John was founded in 1999 by Peter Moren, Bjorn Yttling, and John Eriksson. In their early years as a band, they released the Forbidden Chords EP, a self-titled debut full-length, and a sophomore LP, Falling Out. However, it wasn't until the release of their 2006 LP Writer's Block that Peter Bjorn and John began to achieve international recognition. The LP's lead single, "Young Folks," featured Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes, which led to appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Grouplove What's In My Bag? Ameoba Music

"I lived in New York for 10 years... Every time I was having, like, a cool moment; cut my bangs, I got a leather jacket, Spoon came on," says Grouplove's Hannah Hooper during their recent What's In My Bag? interview. She's talking about Spoon's beloved fourth album Kill The Moonlight, which features the now classic "The Way We Get By." The vocalist/keyboardist wryly continues, "we're parents now so we need...a lot of leather jackets in our life."

Grouplove Big Mess Amoeba MusicLos Angeles indie rockers Grouplove formed in 2009 after the members met at the Ikarus artist commune in Crete. The band released a self-titled EP in 2010, heading out on tour as the support act for Florence and the Machine and The Joy Formidable that same year. Grouplove signed to Canvasback/Atlantic Records, who reissued the band's breakthrough EP in January 2011.
