I got the following email from a Cali-based reader:
The White Stripes are taking over the old Tower Records on Sunset Blvd. for a midnight madness sale Tuesday June 19th at 12:01AM and then a special performance on Wednesday June 20th in the store. The whole store is being decorated in the style of the old Tower, except with imagery from the band. The first 200 people to buy the record at midnight will receive tickets to the show. Fans have already begun to camp out to ensure their tickets.
Man! And I thought NYC kids were crazy! But I’d probably do the same if I was a student with nothing to do during the summer!
