Cutting class on a fall afternoon back in high school was when I made the trek up to Lawrence to visit Mass Street Music for the first time. Enchanted. A staple of the Lawrence music culture, and of Mass Street - when businesses have come and gone, and chains have replaced the local, home-grown variety - I fell in love that fall afternoon. Now, ahem, many years later, I can still walk in to smell the musk of wisdom, not the snooty kind, and know that I will find answers to questions from friendly staff and curiosity fulfilled. A must when visiting Lawrence, Kansas.
