It’s the beginning of a new era for Amoeba, an independent LA record store that has somehow managed to survive through the rapid changes that have occurred in the musical landscape. In a short clip, Tyler, The Creator announced the new location of the store.

The new space will occupy 6200 Hollywood Boulevard in El Centro. It’s a residential area and retail complex that only opened two years ago. It’s about four blocks from the original location of 6400 Sunset Boulevard, just across from the Fonda Theatre. In the video, Tyler mentions how Amoeba helped promote Goblin in his early career and how the store has won his support since then. “As long as Amoeba don’t close, that’s what I care about,” says Tyler. “My first studio album I put out, they let me get on the roof and take a photo with the big thing, and I was like…ever since then, they have my support. They’ve supported me and it’s been love. So I’m excited for the new Amoeba.”

The reason for the change has to do with Amoeba’s owners selling the original location to make way for a 200-apartment tower and commercial space that’s under development — Amoeba’s owners sold the space for $34 million USD. According to a statement, the new space will be “a bit smaller, but not [by] a whole lot,” adding, “we are humbled by the massive outpouring of support throughout this search from our customers and the LA community.” Amoeba’s new store is expected to open its doors “sometime after Labor Day 2020.″

Check out the video above for a look at the raw, unfinished space of Amoeba’s new space.
