So get the word out, teenage douchebags have burglarized one of the great studios in Seattle.

And if that wasn’t enough, we received word that the amazing Bop Street Records has been having some massive flooding.  You can read about it all right HERE. The image of Dave Vorhees, Bop Street owner, drying off his personal collection of 45s is as rough as you’ll see today.

Keep Jupiter and Bop Street in your thoughts people.  They need some serious love.
