Amoeba Music Store News and Happenings 

ABOUT AMOEBA MUSIC

In 1990 Amoeba Music was born on Telegraph Avenue in one of California's most exciting and revolutionary cities -- Berkeley.  The passion we shared with our customers for a truly broad, expertly stocked music selection at an irresistible price quickly kindled into a strong community and widespread attention.  Since then we've expanded many times, and opened stores in two major California cities, San Francisco and Los Angeles.  Today, music lovers come from far and near to visit the original Amoeba Music, shop our hundreds of thousands of new and used CDs and LPs, and enjoy the unique Berkeley vibe. We've earned years of acclaim and built a reputation as one of California's best music stores.  Come visit and you'll see why!
2455 Telegraph Ave. Berkeley, CA 94704

In 1997 Amoeba Music crossed the Bay to open its San Francisco location, in a converted bowling alley at the eastern edge of Golden Gate Park.  Here we stock hundreds of thousands of music and movie titles from every genre imaginable, and we're constantly buying great collections and bringing in new product.  The beautiful, dynamic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, with its history of music and free expression, is the perfect place for an offshoot from the original location in like-minded Berkeley.  With our huge selection, kool staff, and amazing live shows, we're a must-see part of San Francisco!
1855 Haight St. San Francisco, CA 94117

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.

The Sub Pop Airport Store (Seattle, WA)

The Sub Pop Airport Store (Seattle, WA)

Sub Pop SeaTacSub Pop is a record label founded in 1986 by Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman in Seattle, Washington.
Sub Pop achieved fame in the late 1980s for first signing Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney and many other bands from the Seattle music scene. They are often credited with taking the first steps toward popularizing grunge music, and have continued to achieve critical and commercial success in the new millennium, with bands such as Fleet Foxes, Foals, Beach House, The Postal Service, Flight of the Conchords, No Age, Wolf Parade and The Shins on their roster. 

Sub Pop launches new retail concept store in Seattle Tacoma Airport (story here)

Sub Pop’s long-standing motto, “Spanning the Globe for Profit”, became more true than ever before this May as they opened the doors to a first-of-its-kind retail space in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The Sub Pop Airport Store (working-title-turned-seemingly-actual-title) is a mix of the classic Sub Pop Mega Mart and a Pacific Northwest-centric gift shop. Sub Pop collaborated with designers, artists, and companies who also call the Pacific Northwest home and created a vast array of brand new Sub Pop and PNW-related wares currently available exclusively (for now) at the Sub Pop Airport Store.

Broadtime was honored when approached by Sub Pop to create an instore listening experience to match the whole ethos of their iconic brand and store.  We knew that Sub Pop's customers would be looking for an exciting, fun way to discover and further explore the fantastic selection of media at the store. Broadtime BPM stations provide the perfect platform to deliver that experience along with Sub Pop's marketing message. It has been an incredible opportunity to be part of this thrilling venture and we are proud that our BPM stations are now part of a new Seattle Landmark.

Music Millennium (Portland)

Music Millennium (Portland)

It was The Ides of March, March 15th of 1969, when Don MacLeod, his wife Loreen and brother in law Dan Lissy first opened an 800 square foot record store on the corner of 32nd & East Burnside. Specializing in mostly underground music not found in the department stores, drugstores or the couple of record stores which existed at the time, Music Millennium filled a niche for the Portland music community.

Titles by Fairport Convention, Frank Zappa, John Fahey, The Fugs and Holy Modal Rounders were stocked in the small store along with the sounds heard on the then three month old FM station, KINK- The Underground Link.

It's over 40 years later and Music Millennium is the oldest record store in existence in the Pacific Northwest. Throughout their history, they have stocked the ever-evolving gamut of formats including LP, 45, reel-to-reel, 8-track, cassette, DAT, compact disc, mini-disc, DCC and CD-ROM.

As people who know and love music, Music Millennium has hosted an array of in-store performances and autograph appearances over the years, including the likes of Richard Thompson, Luscious Jackson, Loreena McKennitt, Maureen McCormick (aka "Marcia Brady"), Blue Rodeo, Shonen Knife, Matthew Sweet, Soundgarden, Mike Watt, Don Walser, Sheryl Crow, Randy Newman, Everclear, Jewel, Little Feat, Susannah Hoffs and Cheap Trick to name a few.
