Village Music: Last of the Great Record Stores

Back in 2007, Shadow commemorated the closing of iconic Bay Area record store Village Music by spinning in the store every day for a month. A documentary about the history of the store and its owner, John Goddard, was filmed, but never completed. Now, the film's director and producer have announced a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds necessary to complete the film.
