After blazing the charts in the UK, Duffy has finally made it across the Atlantic with the US release of her new CD “Rockferry”. Our team at the Union Square Megastore were thrilled to host the first ever NYC in-store performance & CD signing for Duffy this week. Fans packed the Union Square location for a 3 song acoustic performance… including her #1 UK single “Mercy”. Check out a clip of Duffy’s performance at

One great moment of the evening was when Union Square manager Jason Matos was meeting Duffy and received a call over his radio and Duffy gladly told the entire store over the radio, “He’s with Duffy!” Check out the photo below! Overall it was another great Union Square in-store moment!

It was a mini-reunion for the staff at our Union Square Megastore in
New York City and artist Moby as he returned to our store to help
launch his latest CD “Last Night.” He had a great in-store event at
our location when he released his album “Play” so we were eager to
host him once again. He arrived to a store of his fans! We had
several customers who bought a copy of his album to have him sign
it. Great guy – even took the time to pose for pictures with all
who turned up! Street date sales of his album were fantastic —
definitely something you should check out. My personal fav on the
album is “Disco Lies.”
Happy listening!

Vampire Weekend at Union Square

February 1, 2008 at 5:57 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

The Union Square location hosted an amazing event with Vampire Weekend last night to celebrate the release of their debut CD. We had over 350 fans in attendance at last night’s event, selling 222 CDS. Vampire Weekend began their performance at 11:30PM, and then signed CDs for fans following their performance. It was a fantastic event to have at the Union Square, as this band truly represents what this location is all about in music. Vampire Weekend are getting a huge buzz on the scene right now and have been receiving amazing reviews in such publications as Spin, NME, and Rolling Stone. They have 2 sold out shows at the Bowery Ballroom, and will also be appearing at the Coachella Music Festival this year.

Kudos to the team at Union Square – another terrific event.

SIA at Union Square

January 22, 2008 at 9:16 am (In Store Events, Union Square Megastore) (, , , )

Wow 2 great in-stores in a row at Union Square, what a way to kick 2008 off.

Last night, again over 250 fans turned out to hear a live mini concert from SIA at the Virgin Megastore Union Square. Although she was being plagued with the same flu everyone in NYC has at this time, she still gave us an over the top performance.

SIA performed 7 songs last night and followed her performance by signing autographs of her new CD “Some People Have Real Problems” for all the fans that turned out for the 7:00PM performance. The store sold 156 copies of the CD and traffic was up 10.3% for the day.

If you ever get the chance to meet SIA, you will so fall in love this with this artist. She has an amazing personality and her performance last night was a Union Square memorable in-store performance that everyone will be talking about!

Enjoy the photos..
