Since 2001, Amoeba Music in Hollywood has stood as a beacon for resilience in an industry disrupted by digital downloads and streaming music services.

“We’re going to remain in our building for the duration of our lease — which is several years — and Amoeba and the building owner are open to us potentially staying longer,” the indie retail giant posted Monday evening on Twitter.
The statement was in response to a story that appeared first on local site LAist, which speculated that Amoeba would soon “get the wrecking ball” to make way for a large residential tower.
