The whitewashing of the East Village continues
As noted last month, Tu Casa Recording Studio is leaving its longtime home at 95 Avenue B between East Sixth Street and East Seventh Street.
Early last evening, EVG reader Ann noted that workers were starting the paint over Tu Casa's mural...
Tu Casa has been around since 1972. A very lengthy list of musicians have played here through the years... including Butch Morris, Black Flag, the Bush Tetras, Dee Dee Ramone, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs... (Find more names here.)
We don't know if Mario is moving Tu Casa to a new space in Brooklyn ... or closing altogether. We called Tu Case, though the number has been temporarily disconnected.
