Midwestern Musical Co. closes in August after 25 years
Since its opening in 1989, the iconic Midwestern Musical Co. shop at the corner of 19th Street and Locust has been a common gathering for local and touring musicians, and this August, its doors shutter for good. The sad announcement came earlier this week in a Facebook post from Matt Kesler, Pedaljets guitarist and co-founder of MMC.
But MMC will not be disappearing without a bang. On August 1, First Friday, make sure you stop down for the store’s final celebration, which is set to include prizes and a raffle for a Guitar Bash. (Winner plays with the Guitar Bash Band and gets to… well, bash a guitar to bits.) Details on the event here.
