Posted: March 21, 2014 Pedals Music moving to South Barstow

South Barstow Street will be magnet for musical gatherings this spring, as another store brings its musical expertise to the blocks.

Pedals Music, currently located at 313 E Madison St, will be moving to 307 S. Barstow Street, the former Turks Head Coffee House.

EricThompson, owner of Pedals Music, said the inspiration for the move comes from a desire to be around more activities related to music.  Growing up in Eau Claire, he remembers visiting music stores that used to be in the area.

"When I was a kid growing up here, that was what you did," Thompson said, reflecting on spending time in music and record shops. He wants to bring that sense of nostalgia back downtown.

Along with the new location, the public can also look forward to a small studio in the basement. Thompson has arrangements to team up with Revival Records and host shows there.

"I plan to do a lot more with bringing in local musicians and bands coming through the area," said Thompson.

Thompson said he's not sure when the move will officially happen since it depends on whether someone will take his current space or if he has to wait until his lease ends.  Thompson said the move will take place quickly.
