The MP3-Amoeba Effect
We were really bummed to hear last month that -- after 40 years -- Aron's Records on Highland is closing. One of the great independent retailers of new and used music in LA is shutting its doors after they sell everything left in stock.
Now LAist receives this e-mail release from the owners of Silverlake record store UponShop:
That's right, UponShop is closing its doors and saying good night. We can't believe it ourselves…but all things must pass…we leave wishing everyone the best, to stay strong, positive and feel empowered that anyone can do anything… So back to the shop closing…yes, UponShop is closing its doors…records are everywhere so don't ever give up looking…I know I won't…hopefully, the web site will stay up…there is always myspace to keep in
touch…it's not over it's just a change…like I said, we are all staying positive and keeping it real…do not go quietly into that good night…horseshit…peace and happy holidays…peace and prosperity in 2006…Stop the War in Iraq…
To mark the occasion of its demise, UponShop is also selling everything until its gone. But call before you go. Azul and company might already be gone...
3910 Sunset Blvd.
And lest we forget, this is a good time for LAist to remind you to support your local retailers this holiday shopping season. 'Cause if you don't, then all we'll have left will be Wal-Marts and overstock.com.
