Fat Beats closing their store
This news in yesterday: The physical retail arm of Fat Beats Records (they also have a website, label & distributorship), who for some time (16 years!) have occupied the original location of Venus Records (RIP) on the north east corner of West 8th Street and 6th Avenue, will be shutting down both of their stores - the one described here (closing September 4), and the one in Los Angeles (closing September 18). Until then they will be having some sales to move out some stock, so you may want to check it out if you're of the hip hop persuasion. The website & distribution arms will continue to operate. That website address, again, is FatBeats.com.
