Dear Friends and Neighbors,  

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, closing our doors is the most responsible way to help prevent the spreading of this highly infectious disease. 

If you are a fan of art, music and everything in between. Transistor is that place.   We are a brick & motor store providing wall space for local artist.  Keeping my doors open is essential for not just me but for the artist I host.

I am a mainly a one person team.  My friends who can help me gives me relief from time to time. I essentially work 7 days a week 14 hour days.   I rarely pay myself to keep this store open.  My love for the arts and music is what keeps me going and helping out other artists.

Whoever has the ability and means to help, please consider giving to this establishment. We’re grateful in advance for any and all support and generosity. Our community, neighbors, friends, and clients mean the world to us.
