When the clock strikes midnight and
it's officially Tuesday morning, do you
know where you favorite new releases
They are probably already at the music
store waiting for you to get your hands on
before anyone else does.
Tower Records on South University
Avenue is open until just after midnight
every Monday night to serve late night
music customers.
Chris Youngman, a Tower Records
sales clerk on Monday nights, said the
number of fans purchasing new releases
varies depending on the release.
"Normally we're only open 20 minutes
after midnight," Youngman said.
He added that when popular bands
release albums, it gets exciting. "When
the Beastie Boys released 'Hello Nasty'
there was a big line, Youngman said,
"Everyone was anxious to get the album.
The only significant difference
between purchasing music at Tower dur-
ing normal business hours and buying
new releases late Monday night is that the
sales clerks keep all new releases behind
the counter, to make sure everyone gets
what they want quickly, Youngman said.
Assistant manager at Discount
Records on State Street, Mike Babcock
said the store holds late Monday night
sales for big releases. He added that
although the store holds these events for
all types of music, rap releases attract the
largest crowds on Monday nights.
Paul Cahlenberg, general manager of
Tower Records, said at his store, new rap
releases are not the only albums that bring
in customers at midnight.
"Hippie bands," Cahlenberg said, also
help Tower's midnight sales to flourish,

Upcoming music
~ Insane Clown Posse, "The Jekyll
/ Morsel, "Wrecked and Remixed"
/ Nas," Iam ... the Autobiography"
/ '98 Korn Tour Compilations
"Family Values Tour"
citing the large crowd that went to Tower
to purchase the new Dave Matthews
Band release in February.
What would possess a person to travel
to their favorite record store and purchase
a release at midnight instead of waiting
until thenext day?
Matt Bolles, a student at Eastern
Michigan University, went to Tower
Records last Monday night to purchase
the new Silverchair disc, "Neon
"I want to be the first one to get it,"
Bolles said.
Latrelle Eldridge, an Engineering
senior, went to Tower to buy Black,
Moon's release "Warzone." He said he
decided to make the disk that night, "just
to be the first to get it and make sure I
have it before it gets sold out," Eldridge
It's all about getting the goods before
anyone else does and depending on the
release it maybe about getting more bang
for your buck.
Cahlenberg said the store sometimes
offers free memorabilia for music fanat-
ics. "It it's a big release ... we may have
free t-shirts or posters."
The late night music sales are "really
something for the fans,' Cahlenburg said
Without youthful and avid interest in
music, he added, the store wouldn't be as
exciting on Monday nights.
