    Funk Trunk Records shutters its brick-and-mortar shop
    In late 2014, Gossip Wolf was thrilled to hear that Funk Trunk Records had set up shop in Rogers Park-sadly, though, the brick-and-mortar location on 6960 N. Sheridan is no more. Owner Quinn Cunningham broke the news on Facebook last Friday, and he tells Gossip Wolf that the shop officially closed over Independence Day weekend.

  • Bye bye Funk Trunk and all that beautiful vinyl. Sorry the little chamber let you and all the rest of us down. Come on back for the pet parade. The costumes will be cool.

  • diana Life is short. Death is long. Act accordingly.

    Bummer!! Quinn, the owner, is a great guy. I hope he continues the Record Swaps at Red Line and his guest dj nights at Rogers Park Social and other venues!
