Amoeba Records is moving
If you remember, the current location had been sold to developers
This is from the LA TImes
The retailer’s Hollywood location, which opened to great fanfare in 2001, has been in a kind of holding pattern since news of the possible development came to light a few years ago. The store sold the building to developer GPI Cos. in 2015 for $34 million.
“Amoeba has every intention of remaining in L.A.,” Amoeba’s Jim Henderson told The Timesin 2017, citing the store’s statement on Facebook as the most complete update on its future at 6400 Sunset Blvd. “Rest assured, we are NOT closing, but we are now in a position where we may have to change locations in the coming years.”
As announced by Tyler, The Creator (below) - the new location will be on Hollywood and Argyle - near the Fonda Theatre
From the Press Release:
"We have been blown away by the massive outpouring of support from our customers and the LA community throughout our search for a new home and are excited for the next chapter in the Amoeba story," said Jim Henderson, co-owner of Amoeba Music. "It has been a long search, but we’re pleased to announce we found the right new home and are able to stay in the music and movie-loving heart of Hollywood."
Located just four blocks from its current location, Amoeba Music will remain in the center of Hollywood and easy to find for both locals and visitors. The new space features free/validated parking in the on-site lot and easy accessibility via public transportation: located across the street from the Hollywood & Vine Metro rail stop and one block east of the #217 bus stop.
