Charity Auction recap Amoeba Hollywood

On Saturday, June 3rd, we held a charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood with a brand new guest auctioneer, the dapper writer and comedian Jake Fogelnest! The auction, benefiting the Sierra Club, couldn't be more timely--with the issue of climate change on all of our minds. We are all hoping to protect our planet for generations to come, and the Sierra Club has been working tirelessly for more than a hundred years to do just that!

Sierra ClubThe Sierra Club was founded by legendary conservationist John Muir 125 years ago in 1892 and it's now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Its successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, they made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.

Our guest auctioneer knows a thing or two about music and pop culture. Jake started a television show, from his New York City bedroom, when he was 14-years old! Squirt TV made its debut in January of 1994 on Manhattan public access. The show featured Jake spouting off his opinions of music, film and television. Jake wrote, produced, directed and edited the entire series, himself. The one-man show quickly became a cult success in Manhattan. Jake's quirky style, sense of humor and edgy commentary attracted fans and Squirt TV evolved from Public Access to the mass audience of MTV. Jake latest projects include Comedy Central's upcoming series Corporate, Netflix's Girlboss, and Hulu's Difficult People.

Planetarium

Space is the place for the men of Planetarium. The new indie "supergroup" consists of Sufjan Stevens, The National's Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly, and James McAlister and their debut self-titled release is due June 9th via 4AD. Taking their inspiration from our marvelous solar system, the songs on Planetarium are all named after different planets, the moon, the sun, a comet, and black holes.

4AD and Amoeba Hollywood are excited to launch (get it?) a very special Planetarium listening event in the Los Angeles area on June 7th, taking place at the John Drescher Planetarium at Santa Monica College. (Similar events are occurring in Seattle and New York City.) To hear the album in this incredible setting, all you have to do is pre-order Planetarium on CD or vinyl in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood starting Monday, June 5th. Fans will receive guaranteed entry into the 6:15pm seating.

New 'What's In My Bag?' Episode with Melvins

Melvins What's In My Bag? episode at Amoeba Hollywood

We are incredibly stoked to share our 500th "What's In My Bag?" episode featuring the legendary Melvins!! Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, and Steven McDonald recently visited us at Amoeba Hollywood to debate which is the best Rolling Stones record, talk about being influenced by The Runaways, and pick up albums by new artists The Lemon Twigs and Savoy Motel.

The Melvins formed in Montesano, WA in 1983, taking their name from a much-maligned supervisor at the Thriftway store where vocalist and guitarist Buzz Osborne worked as a clerk. As Melvins, he and drummer Dale Crover would go on to become underground legends, influencing the development of grunge, doom, and sludge. The band's 1986 debut EP, Six Songs (aka Melvins) was released as a vinyl 7". Their first studio full-length LP, Gluey Porch Treatments, was released in 1987 via Alchemy Records. With deep ties to the nascent grunge scene, Crover played drums on a Nirvana demo that would later become part of their Bleach LP.

Lil Yachty's debut full-length album, Teenage Emotions, is officially out on CD May 26th. It merges his signature gleeful sing-rap and auto-tuned transmissions with hip-hop bombast, pop, and eighties cultural touchstones. The 19-year-old Atlanta native is proudly genre-defying, mining hip-hop, alternative, and indie sounds, as well as his hometown Atlanta trap DNA to solidify his mosaic approach. The album is a reflection of young lives right now, from happiness to social media-saturated heartbreak to the dance floor, caught in a sound that effortlessly and constantly bounces from rap to pop to something entirely its own. Personally, the nineteen-year-old strives to promote positivity and good vibes. It caters to a teenager's everyday lifestyle -- heartbreak, happiness, and that vibe when you wake up in the morning and just wanna dance.
