50 Rad Things Now on the Sig's Lagoon Walls

Within the past month, the walls of Sig's Lagoon have been transformed into a sprawling pop-culture collage of posters, photos, newspaper clippings, magazine covers, picture discs and cardboard cutouts courtesy of former Sundance Records owner Bobby Barnard.

Since the longtime San Marcos music store closed in April, Barnard has been spending 12 hours a day affixing his memorabilia to the Sig's walls. He's grouped them by artist in some cases -- The Rolling Stones are near the entrance, with Alejandro Escovedo and Doug Sahm a little further down the wall, then ZZ Top and the Beatles. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Nirvana are by the stairs.
