Southtown is making it into the papers once again! This time it’s Southtown Sound, new Southtown recording studio, making it big and smashing headlines with their recent launch and grand opening. Scott Faingold of The Illinois Times wrote an article about the studio’s launch and re-vamp since Brandon Carnes ran South Town Studio out of the same space. Scott interviews studio spokesperson B.J. Pearce about the new studio. From the article:
“It’s a great day,” said B.J. Pearce, studio manger of Southtown Sound. “We really have a lot going on for us right now.” The newly renovated recording studio located in the building directly behind Dumb Records near the corner of 11th Street and South Grand Avenue had its grand opening on Sunday, March 26, concurrent with the Black Sheep Annual Art Show (See “Art at the Pharmacy and Black Sheep,” IT, March 30). “We’ve done some recording already,” Pearce explained, “but this is the first time we’ve been officially open to the public.”
