The last days of The Hour Haus

At midnight on Thursday, July 30th, 2015, the final amps and drum kits were reluctantly lugged out of Station North's longtime music rehearsal space, The Hour Haus.  After 25 years as a music practice facility and performance venue, the building is being converted to office space.  Audio producer Adam Droneburg and photographer Dan Goodrich spent the past few months chronicling the end of the Hour Haus era, collecting interviews and portraits of the building's final musical residents.  Today, with a stroke of the clock and the change of a lock, their documentary work has become instant history.
