Reverb Media to close in two weeks

by Dave Carew

We got word today that Reverb Media, the cool CD and rock-clothing shop directly across from Bongo Java on Belmont Boulevard, is closing in about two weeks. A big sign reading “75% off everything” now adorns the outside of the shop, and, in fact, a bunch of the CD’s are literally being given away.  I stopped in there today and was able to get a rare Flying Burrito Brothers album (featuring the post-Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman line-up of 1976) for a whopping $2.73.

By the way, if you’re wondering what will replace Reverb at that prime location, prepare to cringe: a candy store.
