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

On August 19, just after Jonathan Richman's "There's Something About Mary" event at Lost Weekend Video, I had a sit-down video interview with store owner Dave Hawkins, and then spoke with Christy Colcord, also one of Lost Weekend's three co-owners.

Colcord used to book and work for the brilliant band Jawbreaker. Adam Pfahler, the third founder of Lost Weekend, was Jawbreaker's drummer.

In our interview, we spoke about how the trio decided to open a video store, how the building on Valencia Street was chosen, and what the neighborhood used to be like.

Then, we paused the interview as she stood to help pull a huge recycling bin down the backdoor's steps.

Coming soon, part III of the history of Lost Weekend Video. Subscribe to our YouTube channel here, and stay tuned.
