“I’ve watched this place evolve from a hardware store to a clothing shop to SLO Brew, and it is the best. I come from New York City. When I moved here I was wondering about music and nightlife, and this place fulfilled my expectations, and I am really going to miss it.”

“It’s really sad; it’s, like, very nostalgic for all of us who have worked here. I’ve been here for three years. I’ve been coming to shows before that, so it’s a really sad night. It’s actually really weird.”

“I am a little sad, but I am excited about their new venture, and at least it’s still in downtown San Luis Obispo, so it still allows us to give back to the local community.”

“I’m bummed because I used to go here when I was in high school. … I went to a Bouncing Souls concert when I was like 15 and I got hit in the head with a crowd surfer and I got a concussion and I woke up in the bathroom and everybody took care of me really nicely.”
