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
President 

FREE INSTORE – Given Human Attributes

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.”

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

Poor Man’s Poison

Originally published on Too Old To Rock & Roll…Too Young To Die back in September. This one gets better with each and every listen. Tell Karl Jr. or Jamie to get you one of these if you are a fan of any type of Americana music…

Poor Man’s Poison are a group of musical friends from California.  They play acoustic music on traditional bluegrass instruments but this is far from traditional sounding.  You get all kinds of influences from folk to reggae in their style.  Think of perhaps Jack Johnson having grown up in Appalachia instead of Hawaii.  I mean this in a really good way.  There is a sweet, laid-back vibe to this record.  Tight harmonies and great playing infuse the songs with such a good feeling.

You can hear their influences throughout the album, proudly worn on their sleeves.  Walkin’ owes more than a small debt to Bob Marley, go figure that reggae-bluegrass works and works well.  The lead track At The Winds Will is a standout that pretty much sums up the many talents of this band:  good songs with great harmonies played extremely well.  Slow Down is another track I really liked.  The advice of the band to stop and smell the roses is driven home by a tune that just gets you to downshift a little and catch your breath.  Greedy Man switches things up and is an indictment of our less than charitable sides.  The only miss for me was Christmas Beers which must come off great live but sees to me to be a bit of a throw away.

As the summer ends and we all head back to work or school you would do yourself a solid if you grab this one.  I have a feeling I will be playing it quite a bit.   I suggest that you do.
