WOW this is cool!!!

Hey Guys,

So a few months back I was packing up some internet orders from LTCDS.com and noticed a familiar name. MATT GROENING. Could this be the REAL Matt Groening, the creator of THE SIMPSONS?  Well I am such a HUGE fan I decided to throw in a free Looney Tunes T-Shirt in his order along with a letter letting him know what big fans we all are of the Simpsons. SO….low and behold…..This is what I received in my mail today.

HOW COOL IS THIS!!!!

13TH Annual Evening in the Yard Being Held on Friday, May 20 at the Navy Yard.

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) Scott Bluebond is the marketing and communications director at the Cancer Support Community of Philadelphia (CSCP). But he is also one huge Yes fan. He was able to combine his love for helping people with cancer and the group Yes this week.  CSCP is having their annual gala on May 20 and this year, there will be an auction for the first time.  Scott called his friend Rich Chodak, owner of Bluebond Guitars and Music School (www.bluebondguitars.com/Bluebond/Home.html), for help. Rich purchased the store from his childhood friend and neighbor, Dale Bluebond, who was killed in an auto accident in 1994.  Dale was Scott’s cousin.

ALL TIME LOW – Concert & Signing!!

Artist – ALL TIME LOW

Date – Wednesday June 8th

Time – 4:00 pm

Event – SOLD OUT

Dear Friends,

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the ALL TIME LOW instore so let me clarify it for everyone involved.

WE ARE COMPLETLY SOLD OUT. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY ORDERED THE CD AND HAVE A WRISTBAND YOU ARE IN FOR THE EVENT.  

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A WRISTBAND ALREADY – DO NOT COME!

UNDER NO CIRMUNSTANCES WILL YOU GET INTO THE EVENT


WE ARE 100% SOLD OUT! REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS SAID ON

THE RADIO OR THE BANDS SITE! WE ARE SOLD OUT!

If you pre ordered in time you got a wristband for the instore concert and the autograh signing. If you ordered later then that you only have a wristband for the autograph signing.  All internet orders will not ship. You should pick up your wrisband and order today! If you want to wait till the day of the event you can, BUT you will not get a good spot on line because there will be a very long line picking up pre orders. I STRONGLY SUGGEST you pick you your pre order before the day of the show.

RULES FOR THE DAY OF THE EVENT

1) NO CAMERAS PERMITTED – THERE WILL BE NO PICTURES WITH THE BAND!

2) Every person will get ONE autograph. We will provide you with a FREE poster and that is what you are getting signed.

3) When you pick up your pre order – you will get two things 1) a piece of paper that has your CD order on it. You turn that into us the day of the event to pick up your CD. 2) you get a wristband – that allows you to come into the event.

THERE ARE NO COPIES AND WE DO NOT HAVE RECORDS OR DUPLICATES. IF YOU LOOSE EITHER YOU WILL  NOT BE ALLOWED IN. DO NOT LOOSE IT! 

ANYONE – ANYONE! Who can not follow these rules please come to the store for a full refund before the day of the event. We will be happy to give your wristband to someone else.

Friends- This post may seem a little strong, let me tell you why.  

Some people are saying the event is not sold out. Well that just is not true. Here at Looney Tunes I have but only one concern, and it’s not selling a lot of CDs.  I started doing these events for the fans. FOR YOU! I know how much you love these bands and how much fun these can be.

I AM MAKING THESE RULES TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY.

LOONEY TUNES #1 RULE IS THAT EVERYONE WILL HAVE A GOOD AND SAFE TIME.

I want everyone to have fun. I do not want a ton of people showing up the day of the event who are going to make the event run less smooth then perfect.

THE BAND HAS ONLY 2 HOURS AT LOONEY TUNES THEY HAVE A FLIGHT TO CATCH AND WILL BE LEAVING THE STORE ASAP AT 6pm.

With only 2 hours to work with, we needed to cap the amount of people that can come to the event. I can not have more people show up then the band can sign autographs for.

AGAIN MY ONLY CONCERN IS OUR CUSTOMERS SAFETY.

SO WITH THAT SAID,

WE WILL HAVE A GREAT EVENT – FOLLOW THE RULES AND HAVE FUN!!!

Respectfully,

Karl Groeger
Looney Tunes

FREE INSTORE – Given Human Attributes

Artist – GIVEN HUMAN ATTRIBUTES
Date – Sunday May 15th
Time – 3:00 pm
Event – FREE Concert & Autograph Signing.


GIVEN HUMAN ATTRIBUTES – TO PLAY LOONEY TUNES!

 The great new band from Long Island GIVEN HUMAN ATTRIBUTES will be here at Looney Tune to play a FREE concert and autograph signing.  The guys have a new CD that comes out that day! If you like what you hear pick it up on sale that afternoon!

 Frontman Ryan Sean, hailing from Long Island, NY has seen two different sides of music scene for most of his life. Having toured across the U.S. (performing over 300 venues with the likes of Paramore, The All American Rejects, Cartel, OAR, Jack’s Mannequin, Trapt, Edison Glass and more…) as the founding member of Buffalo based “Colors in the Air” or the bassist for the Republic of Wolves, Ryan has surely seen the stage through musician’s eyes. But not to his dismay, the long nights turned into lyric-fests and countless hours without sleep fueled the production of raw and energetic performances. Needless to say, there was never a dull moment on tour. “Might as well do it while we’re young, right?” Says the charismatic frontman.

Today, the ambient, indie-rock duo, GIVEN HUMAN ATTRIBUTES certainly has no shortage of raw energy. Joined by friend and fellow music-enthusiast Scott Byrne (Guitars, Vox, Production), the duo have the metaphorical tools in their tool shed to surprise listeners, in an attempt to woo hearts and please the senses. Expressing heartfelt lyrics and the desire to make each guitar riff more unique then the last, GHA has taken notes from recent success stories The Black Keys and heavily influenced MGMT to create a sound all their own. If you get the chance to see them perform you’ll be pleased by the refreshingly unique similarity between their acoustic and electric sets, while they showcase tasteful diversity and energy that keeps crowds engaged.

Gearing up for the highly anticipated release of their first album entitled “Critical Mass”, GHA has been reaching out to the world with other releases, such as “A Little Bit Of Everything”. Partnering with a non-profit organization (Citizen Effect), the band has been raising money over a 10-week campaign to support Relief Efforts in Japan.

And with plans of a tour to follow the release “No venue is too small”, as Ryan explains. “As long as you have someone to enjoy the music with that’s all that really matters, because at the end of the day all we really want is someone to share our adventures with. At least that’s what I’d like to believe.”

For more information on Given Human Attributes and to hear new music, feel free to visit www.facebook.com/givenhumanattributes

Fans of the similar rock artists Jimmy Eat World, Foo Fighters, and Coldplay unite. This is GHA!

Record Store Day 2011 Recap

Looney Tunes Record Store Day 2011 Recap

(pictures here on our Facebook page)

It’s Tuesday morning here in West Babylon. I had to take yesterday off after working Saturday and Sunday. I needed time to recoup from the busiest day in our 40 year history.

HOW WAS RECORD STORE DAY?

I got to the store at about 7:45am Saturday morning to find about 60 people lined up. I asked them when they got there. The first two people on line arrived at 4:00am to be the first on line. WOW That’s insane I said. They just laughed and said they NEEDED TO BE FIRST! The next few people said they lined up at 6:00am. As we were talking I noticed the line keep growing. Apparently there were about 30 more people in their cars and as soon as they saw me they ran on line. By the time we opened up the doors at 9:00am there were about 200 people already on line. WOW – it just got my juices flowing for what I was sure was going to be a killer day.

Our friends at Blackheart Record were on hand at 8:30 am to hand out free coffee to everyone on line, which was desperately needed.

When the doors opened at 9:00am it was like nothing I have ever seen in my retail history. It was an EXPLOSION. People were flying everywhere and grabbing everything. Most customers purchased 5 or more items. Our average sale for the day was over $70! By 1:00pm we were already ahead of last years sales and it never stopped.

When we closed the doors at 10:00pm we had seen the busiest day in our history.

We had over 850 customers Saturday and sales that were 81% higher then RSD 2010!

I could not have done this alone. I want to thank all the amazing bands that helped share this special day with us: Kevin Devine, Thursday, The Pretty Reckless, Alex Skolnick, Grace Read, Tiger Riot and Hotel of the Laughing Tree. The music was unbelievable all day long and we sold a ton of these artists CDs and LPs. The great people of Island Music Labs came down and donated their time the whole day to do sound and record everyone’s performance. I also want to thank Blackheart Records for the free coffee and our new friends The Brickhouse Brewery in Patchogue. The Brickhouse Brewery came down at 1:00pm with a keg of their home brew and sold beer for $2 a cup. Together we took 100% of the money and donated it to the American Red Cross Japan Relief fund. We were able to raise $285 for the Red Cross. We also raffled off a pair of tickets to the Broadway play RAIN – thank you to our friends at RAIN for this great promo.
