Lana Del Rey fills up Amoeba Music

lana-del-rey-at-amoeba.jpgAll those posters around town for Lana Del Rey worked. There was a line outside and around the block at Amoeba Music in Hollywood on Tuesday for her set and sit-down signing. She sang songs off her hit first album and mingled with fans who don't seem to care about the criticism of her music and stage persona. There are three dozen photos by Timothy Norris in an online gallery at the LA Weekly website, including this one to the left. Del Rey is also featured in a fashion shoot and interview on the T Magazine website of the New York Times. And she's on the cover of British Vogue. It's all a long ways from the artistic debacle of her appearance on "Saturday Night Live," which in the end is turning out (naturally) to be a boon to her career.

Video: Greeting fans, including a weeping man, after Del Rey's sound check at Amoeba. There are plenty more videos online of her performances that day.
