GOODBYE GABERS

The Garber Building was a beloved Richmond unicorn: an affordable, trusted, all-hours place to play music.

As soon as I heard the news of its closing, I knew I had to document what happened there. Some really talented folks and I shot, edited and produced this short love letter to the Garber Building. RIP.

 

For more than 40 years, the Garber Door Company called 2201 E. Franklin Street in Richmond, Virginia home. The 65,000 square foot warehouse was largely unoccupied by the business and over the years, it gained a following among musicians and artists seeking extra space to practice their craft.

 

 In June 2016, Garbers relocated their business and sold the building on Franklin Street, silencing a familiar Richmond sound forever.

Thank you Otto Family & Garbers of Richmond.
