In November 2001 Amoeba Music opened its biggest store yet, on Sunset Boulevard in downtown Hollywood. Occupying an entire city block, this store houses the biggest, broadest, most diverse collection of music and movies ever seen on under one roof. Altogether, our 2 shopping floors and our Jazz room boast millions of titles on CD, DVD and vinyl, new and used, and our stock changes as fast as our customers bring in their old collections. We've been warmly welcomed by L.A.'s musical community, and the affection is mutual! Thousands of music lovers from all walks of life pass through our doors every day, and the main sales floor is a raucous, colorful non-stop party. It's the world's largest independent music store, and we think, one of the best. You've got to experience it firsthand! Our fun and experienced staff is an all-star team of musical veterans from music and movie stores all over the country. We have experts in every field and collectively, the musical knowledge we represent is encyclopedic and unparalleled. Our mission is to help you find what you need and to make you feel at home. For our local regular shoppers, we are a vital resource that's an important part of their lives. For music lovers visiting from far and near, it's like a holiday spree in a musical candy store. We are musicians, artists, DJs and writers, and we love to have a good time, which is what we want your shopping experience to be! We're also a critically acclaimed music venue, featuring tons of live bands, DJs, parades, charity events, record and DVD release parties. We've had free live performances from the Flaming Lips, Elvis Costello, Black Flag, Los Lobos, Blackalicious, Jurassic 5, The Roots, Terence Blanchard, John Cale, P.J. Harvey, Nancy Sinatra, The Melvins, Blind Boys of Alabama, Paul Westerberg, Lucinda Williams, Pat Benatar, Poncho Sanchez, Ben Harper, Belle & Sebastian, The Rapture, Queens of the Stone Age, Supergrass, The Raconteurs, DJ Dangermouse and soul legend Solomon Burke. Together, the staff and shoppers and performing artists who come together here every day comprise a unique musical community and an incubator for positive energy. You'll feel it when you walk through the front door. It's an amazing energy that comes as much from our customers as from us. Like the tiny amoeba, the single-celled source of life, we are independent, but we absorb all influences and grow and change. Come be a part of our SoCal community!
