Nuclear Texas Now!
As some of you may already know, NWN will be relocating to Texas later this year. The exact timeline for the move has not been determined yet, but the goal is to move before October 2021. We are currently busy searching for a new warehouse in the greater Austin area with enough square footage for the label as well as the retail space (Eastern Front or maybe I should rename it Western Front?).
The cost of moving a warehouse full of records to Texas will not come cheap, as such, we will be selling personal records, printing equipment, art, books, and anything we can sell to finance the transition. Please stay tuned for more information.
It was not an easy decision to leave California where NWN was started 20+ years ago in my Berkeley apartment bedroom. It has been a great journey to be part of one of the most vibrant music scenes in the US, but the time has come to move on and experience new things.
I would like to take the occasion to thank everyone who has supported NWN over the last 20 years, especially those from the Bay Area. I could not have gotten the label to where it is now without your help. Special thanks to Jason for all of his help over the years, Z for putting in the hours in the old garage, Juan for his PMA, Alex for not sleeping on behalf of NWN, Craig for dealing with random tasks, Rick Thrasher for being OG, Amy for processing thousands of parcels, Todd for his IT expertise, Cesar for always remembering where everything is despite not coming for weeks, my awesome wife for her eternal support, and all of the new crew members (Da Silent Killah, Mike, Cody, Kevin, Fafa, Fui,etc.). Apologies to anyone I forgot to mention here. THANK YOU!
