Best Recording Studio Denver 2007 - 8 Houses Down

Readers' Choice: Notably Fine
In punk-rock years, 8 Houses Down is like a dinosaur. The recording studio, headed by engineers Jeff Merkel and Matt Van Leuvan, has been a staple in the underground scene for over a decade. Its client list reads like the index to a scenester yearbook, with such alumni as Planes Mistaken for Stars, Pinhead Circus, the Gamits and a long, long list of others. Just about every notable punk/hardcore band that has ever called the Mile High City home has banged out a couple of tracks at the 8 Houses studio at one time or another. With a recent move from its longtime digs in Five Points to a shiny new space on Walnut Street, 8 Houses shows no signs of going extinct anytime in the near future.

Thanks for the award! It's always nice to get a nod of approval! Join us for First Friday April 6th. We'll be acting as a gallery, hosting a couple of artists and drinking some wine. We'll be officially open from 6 to 9, but will likely go late! Thanks again!
