A few days ago, I was fortunate enough to be taken on a tour of the future Ear-Peace Records store in Berkley, California. My colleague and good friend Stu Lacero is in the process of opening up what will undoubtedly be one of the shining gems among the local businesses in Berkley. The store features a massive graffiti mural, a floating stage, and spaces for artists to come in and work on pieces live. One of the first things Stu showed me was the space on the floating stage for the DJ booth. (So rest assured I will be eating, sleeping and working in the store quite a bit), and the layout for the records, clothes, and merchandise he plans to sell. I’ve been excited for a while now to see what the store will look like when it’s finished, but after seeing the work in progress, I know the final product will be incredible.
