NLOTH Midnight gathering for the start of sales?

Last time I did this, was with the Achtung Baby release with some friends in Pasadena.
We got there at 10 pm the night prior to the start of sale of the album. The crowd was awesome, there was about 75 people there and the MusicPlus (Old school record store), was very animated and it made for a wonderful time.
The gave away plastic flies to all of the attendees. lol
Anyone planning to do one in your area?

I'm in.

Last time I did a midnight release was for Pop; it was a lot of fun. Errr, on second thought, maybe I shouldn't go . . . Pop is my least favorite U2 album.

If I didn't have at least a 12 hour drive the next morning I would be all for it in my area!

I did this at the Tower Records across from the SD Sports Arena when ATYCLB and then again when HTDAAB was released! Lots of fun and I'm still friends with a couple I met there that night!

Do stores still do midnight sales for big album releases?

I think the only time I've done that was for REM's Monster release in college.

I know my friend went to one for Madonna's Hard Candy. I think the Virgin Megastore in Hollywood at Sunset is still open; I'm sure they'd probably do a midnight release for this.

Gathering in Hollywood for NLOTH!

I think Hollywood might be the only place since there are so few record stores anymore

i went to the Music + store in Monterey Park (i ended up working for them two weeks later for 7 years) for the Achtung Baby release. Good times and I still have my plastic flies!

Damn, I'd really want to do this but I'll be on a plane crossing the atlantic ocean at the time If my flight was just ONE DAY either side I could have done that in the US or UK respectively

I just talked to a guy at Virgin Megastore at Hollywood and Highland, and he said they usually have a midnight release for everything, even the small releases. Their normal hours are 10 a.m. - Midnight, so he said they stay open a little later to accommodate fans who are really excited about a release.

So who's up for taking a trip to Hollywood and Highland on Monday, March 2nd . . . at around 11:59 p.m.
