Fred Armisen

 

Record Store Day is always an incredible success here in Los Angeles, and Amoeba, the largest record store in the US, celebrates the day with festivities, a series of personalities DJing all afternoon long, and a concert at Space 15 Twenty, across the street. The crowd was very dense, the lines did not slow down a bit the whole time I was there. People love that day.

Fred Armisen, of Saturday Night Live and Portlandia fame (and so much more) spent an hour or so DJing for the great pleasure of Amoeba shoppers, and he even got very busy feeding people’s ears and mouths… I mean, literally, as he gave them a white chocolate skull and a jelly brain that he has got from the Flaming Lips (as well as a few other things) while spinning Altered Images, Paul McCartney, Hüsker Dü, Television, Buzzcocks, the Cramps, the Clash and a few funky or pop songs that he did not tag and that I did not recognize… and in full hipster mode, he also played Sonic Youth, and of course Sleater Kinney.

He was very nice, entertaining people who were handing him their phones for him to take a few selfies… He got very busy doing it, sometimes handling two phones at once. Was it a too-hipster move to do? I don’t care, I got closer, I gave him my phone and he took this cool pic above… end of the story.
