Charity Auction at Amoeba Hollywood with Greg Barris

Comedian Greg Barris hosted our auction to benefit Alzheimer's Los Angeles at Amoeba Hollywood on Saturday, October 5th and he slyly and effortlessly charmed our audience into digging deep into their pockets to support an amazing organization-- while they also scored some pretty cool stuff!

Alzheimer's Los AngelesAmoeba matched all winning bids, which meant we doubled the money going to Alzheimer's Los Angeles and their mission to provide free education and support services to families and caregivers who need it so desperately. 

Alzheimer's Los Angeles works to improve the lives of local families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia by increasing awareness, delivering effective programs and services, providing compassionate support, and advocating for quality care and a cure. They offer free classes and workshops about brain health, memory concerns, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, along with care counseling and so much more.

Greg Barris is an American Comedy Scene Darling and served as a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene for years. A frequent Time Out New York Critic’s Pick, much loved by Brooklyn Vegan and hailed as "Excellent" by The New Yorker, Greg created and hosted the long-running Brooklyn comedy variety show Heart of Darkness. Greg and guitarist / visual artist Dima Drjuchin (Corrupt Autopilot) teamed up to form the Wigmaker's Son. Together they created a Zappa-meets-Lonely Island pop fantasy comedy album, Greatest Tits, which also featured friend Reggie Watts. Greg released his debut stand-up album Shame Wave on aspecialthing records and will be releasing a new comedy album on the label in the near future. Greg now lives L.A. where you can find him on stages across the city and beyond.

No city on Earth is more closely associated with motion pictures than Los Angeles. 10% of all movie theaters in the entire country are located in California and Los Angeles County is home to over 100 of them. Although most of Los Angeles's theaters, like those throughout the country, showcase only the latest Hollywood product, there are also specialty theaters which show art films, adult films, classic films, experimental films, foreign films, independent films, revival films, &c. I've previously written about Southern California's drive-in theaters (For Ozoners Only) and overlooked commercial foreign language cinemas (Los Angeles's Secret, Foreign Language Movie Theater Scene). This is my guide to the repertory cinemas or revival houses.

The New Beverly Cinema is screening a brand new print of Shirley Clarke's legendary Junk/Jazz docudrama The Connection. Filmed in New York at the beginning of the 60's, this film focuses on a group of junkies, including legendary sax player & jazz composer Jackie McLean and pianist Freddie Redd, as they philosophize, swing, smoke and sweat it out while they wait for a special delivery. 

A must see!!!
