Thanks to everyone for a really great weekend. It was tons of fun. The sale went really well and lots of records were sold to many smiling people. The Graf Orlock/Lewd Acts show was awesome with an amazing turnout. The Fucked Up in-store went amazingly well too considering it was in the middle of the day. The band was super friendly and we talked about records, Antiseen, and Cheerwine (the best soft-drink ever). They even played a Pennywise cover and some KBD song. I think it was by the Child Molesters but I'm not positive on that. The show at the Milestone sold out which is as much as we could ask for too.
Anyway, you can read some more about things on Rob's blog. You can also view pictures of the Graf Orlock and Lewd Acts show here, the F.U. show and in-store here, some photos Neal Mims took of the Saturday shows here, some that Steven Pilker took here, and finally some more of the F.U. in-store that Bryan Reed took here. Thanks to everyone for all of the support.
It's been a while since an update on here, but we have lots of news. This coming weekend we are having our 3rd Anniversary Show and Sale.
Friday we have Graf Orlock, Lewd Acts, and Lowbrow. It should be fun.
Saturday we have the double whammy. First we have Fucked Up playing an early all-ages in-store show. Free and just them.
Then Saturday night we continue the celebration with a show at the Milestone with Fucked Up, Double Negative, Grids, and Planet Piss. Unfortunately this show is 18+ though. We are selling tickets fro $10 at the store. Buy them now as they are going quick and it's $12 if you wait until the day of. You can also buy them on Etix.com if you want.
There will also be silk screened poster for the show lovingly designed by Ben Gelnett on sale that night like this:
Then we have our big 3rd Anniversary Sale all weekend long. Everything is 20% off. Simple enough. Thanks for the support!!!
We are going to be closing a little early on Saturday the 24th so that we can make it over to the Milestone to watch/play the show.
We also now have tickets to some more awesome upcoming Milestone shows including MDC, The Meatmen, A.C., and Goblin Cock (guitarist/singer of Pinback's metal band). Go here for a complete list of tickets we are selling for them and the Neighborhood Theatre.
Lastly, our friend Sergey has started a little mix-tape exchange here for folks. He made some actual tapes to start it off, but I assume cd-rs are OK as long as they are mixes that you put actual love into and make them look nice I guess. Anyway, if you want to participate it's simple: you bring in a mix you made, you take one from the box other people made. You and they find new music they love. Everyone wins.

Here is the deal:
- You need to go to�http://www.scion.com/rock�for info on how to get tickets.�
- When you go to the site you will be asked to enter your email address and zip code.
- You will be emailed a confirmation number to get a pair of tix and a list of locations nearby where they can pick up them up, including Lunchbox Records.
- You must bring the confirmation to the store and show us the confirmation in order to claim tickets.
Basically, tickets can only be given out to people who bring in the email confirmation.
The show is free, but your are not guaranteed entry by having a ticket, so schedule accordingly and get their early. We will also have silk screened posters to give away with purchase of items from the bands playing the show, but those won't be here for a couple of weeks.
So I guess today (1/27) they finally started sending out confirmation emails. Yay! However, these tickets are on a first come, first served basis and the confirmation email does not come to us and does not guarantee you get tickets.
WE CANNOT HOLD TICKETS FOR YOU. PLEASE DO NOT CALL US ASKING TO DO SO!
