Our favorite record shop in Los Angeles is finally opening the doors of its new location in Hollywood.
Like many record obsessives in Los Angeles, we were extremely saddened to hear the news of Amoeba Hollywood closing during the pandemic. The iconic record store had been a constant source of amazing digs for us over the years. Our personal favorite bins include the rock new arrivals, used electronic 12″, jazz, folk, and the small but often surprising new age section.
The absence of Amoeba over the last year has certainly left a huge hole in our vinyl-needy hearts, but we’re hopeful the new location will be able to capture a bit of the magic of the original spot.
The new Amoeba Hollywood is just a few blocks from the old one at the corner of Hollywood and Argyle. The store will be following public health and safety guidelines, including social distancing and mandatory face coverings. Opening day festivities include a special opening day poster designed by L.A. artist Ivan Minsloff and live t-shirt silk-screening in the courtyard of the El Centro complex.
