Amoeba Charity Auction for Planned Parenthood with Tawny Newsome

We sure had a great time at Amoeba Hollywood on Saturday! Our special guest auctioneer Tawny Newsome, musician and comedian and all around wonderful person, graced our stage and helped us raise close to $2,000 for our local Planned Parenthood chapter.

We had some outstanding prizes, and Tawny's relaxed style coaxed the audience into raising their auction paddles (which were actually Amoeba handheld fans, so they did double duty that hot day). Full of quips and one-liners, she had the audience chuckling--and she even got the shy people to join in!

Tawny Newsome is a Second City alum, actor (Bajillion Dollar Propertie$' "Chelsea Leight-Leigh") and a singer/guitarist. She was a touring member of Second City before joining the Mainstage cast and released a solo album in 2012. In 2013 Rolling Stone suggested Tawny for SNL's new cast. She moved from Chicago to LA about a year and a half ago where she's kept very busy. This October, Tawny is releasing her 4th album with Jon Langford (Mekons, Waco Brothers) which they recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio with original Muscle Shoals session players. They recorded the new album three days after last year's election with Tawny, John and their two band-mates flying to the town of 400. Four Lost Souls will be out on Bloodshot records September 22, with a tour starting that same month.
