The Sunset Boulevard branch of Tower Records may not have seen its last record sale:
The White Stripes will be performing a very special show in West Hollywood, CA on June 20th. The band will play a live show for fans at a specially constructed “Icky Thump Records” store on Sunset Boulevard. The location of Icky Thump Records is the site of the former Tower Records flagship store at 8801 W. Sunset Blvd. Tickets for this unique performance will be made available to the first 200 fans who purchase the album at this store, which opens at midnight on Monday, June 18th.
Is it wrong that our first thought upon reading this news was, “Man, wouldn’t it be great if someone showed up and ask if there are any copies of Lost Highway in stock?” We’re guessing no, just because we can imagine Jack White’s reaction.
