out of the loop

I went to Somerville to check out what the Mars Music Store had for bass cabs. The last time I went there was about 4 or 5 years ago. There are signs up for the store on the building and near the strip mall containing it, but when I pulled up, all I saw was a storefront that looked like it had been hit with a missile. There was a fence surrounding the entrance and a large plastic tarp flapping in the breeze where the door should've been. Wha' happened?!

Little did I know, Mars Music filed for bankruptcy and liquidated their assets 2 years ago. Doh! That explains why I stopped getting their advertisements in the mail.

That leaves Guitar Center as pretty much the only game in town (Daddy's Junky Music reeks, and smaller stores have a limited selection). Ah well.
