A few weeks ago, just after Jonathan Richman's "There's Something About Mary" event at Lost Weekend Video, I sat down with store owner Dave Hawkins.
Hawkins is one of Lost Weekend's three founders. Previously, he drummed for the most-excellent rock band Engine 88.
In our interview, we talked about the state of local video/music/book stores; events held at Lost Weekend; how a video store fits within a community, and answer the onerous question; "will The Mission survive?"
(Thanks to YouTube user reallytack.)
