The history and future of Lost Weekend Video, part I.

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?"

Engine 88 are still one of my favorite bands, boasting a muscular hooky indie-rock power-pop sound akin to that of local peers like J Church, Samiam, and Jawbreaker.

Here is Engine 88's triumphant final reunion show at Bottom Of The Hill, celebrating the release of photographer Peter Ellenby's book, "Every Day Is Saturday" on Friday, October 27, 2006:
