MASA WINDOW REVEAL AT AMOEBA mUSIC HOLLYWOOD

On Saturday, September 17, 2016 the Make America Smart Again window installation hit Amoeba Music in Hollywood, the world’s largest independent record store.

Amoeba came to us here at Studio Number One to design and install a window display at their store in Hollywood to promote the Make America Smart Again movement and encourage people to vote in this crucial election this November. The light bulb logo was inspired as a symbol of dialogue and ideas and the punk rock inspired “show flyers” are a natural inclusion for this landmark music hub in Hollywood. 

A special unveiling event was held on Sunday, Sept. 18 with a special DJ set by DJ Diabetic (aka Shepard Fairey) and in-store promotions. To see the window installation, visit Amoeba Music in Hollywood on 6400 Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles.

Special thank you to Chamo Designs, Monster Media Inc., and the employees at Amoeba Music in Hollywood for helping us make this happen!

On September 23, NØISE—a band comprised of Obey founder Shepard Fairey, Joe Cassidy, John Goff, and Merritt Lear—will release the Little Lions EP on Obey Records. The first offering from the release is a video for the track “Little Lions.” Directed by Rickett & Sones, it takes place in a karaoke bar where Lear’s singing hypnotizes patrons into stillness so little girls can steal their things; Fairey’s daughters are among them.

Idiocracy Screenings Hosted by Make America Smart Again

Created to combat voter apathy and the spread of misinformation MASA is generating conversations with fun events intended to spark a sense of urgency this election season. “Idiocracy” is a cult comedy directed by Mike Judge that satirizes the rise of commercialism and decline of human intelligence in a future dystopian society. The film was selected as a tool to remind and inspire audiences to use their brain and participate in our democracy.

The first MASA event is Saturday, September 3rd at The Skip in Detroit, Michigan co-hosted with partners Library Street Collective. Proceeds will benefit Vote Detroit, a local grassroots initiative fighting to ensure that the voice of every city resident is heard in the upcoming election. Prior to the screening there will be a Detroit SOUP community discussion by Detroiters to benefit creative projects in their city. An after-party featuring local DJ Amy Dreamcatcher of Nothing Elegant and Shepard Fairey AKA DJ Diabetic will take place at The Skip after the film.  

On Saturday, September 24 MASA with partners Eat|See|Hear will host the Los Angeles screening of “Idiocracy” at the Echo Park Tennis Courts and Baseball field. The night will include DJs, special guests, a live performance, and a variety of food vendors by Smorgasburg Los Angeles. Proceeds will benefit the Young Literati of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.

Debate parties, screenings and additional election-themed events will be scheduled leading up to the general election on Tuesday, November 8. Other #MakeAmericaSmartAgain partners include Obey Giant, Studio Number One, Subliminal Projects, Pop and Circumstance, Obey Clothing, Rock the Vote, Amoeba Music, and Spaceland Presents.
