All Things Must Pass (Trailer)

Some day someone will ask, “What’s a record store?” and no one will have an answer (other than ‘huh?’). That day is coming closer than ever… Has to, with the biggest artists only catering to the biggest outlets. Music sales being all online or mobile nowadays, that day will likely come and go with no real commemoration. Or maybe someone will recommend watching this “All Things Must Pass” film, looking into the rise and fall of super-fun, super-giant music store Tower Records. Check out the trailer above.

Questlove Stops By Amoeba Music In Los Angeles For Some Sounds (Video)

Everytime I’m in L.A. there’s usually a few places I ALWAYS stop by before I leave. One of my key stops used to be the Fat Beats record store on Melrose (RIP). It’s been tough with record stores closing around the country but thankfully Amoeba music is still open. That’s why it’s important to continually support institutions like Amoeba whenever you come to Los Angeles or any of their other locations. Last time I stopped in the the LA store I spent a few hours checking out & purchasing music & DVDs. The Roots drummer Questlove stopped by the store to let the people know ‘What’s In His Bag”. Big shout out to my homegirl Mona Lisa who works over there at Amoeba’s LA location.
