I figured I should post something here just in case anyone comes across it regarding the closing of Etherea, and a possible replacement in that space. I just read the Brooklyn Vegan post on Etherea Records "being saved." However, if you read the updates from Etherea employee, Brion, here's the deal:
1. Etherea IS closing this week.
2. Its starting to look like longtime employee, and salesman extroadinaire, Brion, most likely will be taking the space over, changing the name & feel of the store, and make it his own thing. This has been quite touch & go for a while now which is why I haven't mentioned it here on Stupefaction. I'm happy for Brion - he's an incredible sales guy, and really knows his stuff.
Thats it on the Etherea front for now. In the meantime, stock is still 30% off and they may shut the doors (as Etherea) as soon as today or tomorrow so Rich, the owner, can get his stuff together before the lease runs out on him on Saturday.
Over & out.
