For active bands, Encapsulated Studio provides a mecca for recording and screen-printing. The facility offers practice space for local groups and post-show crash space for touring bands. The joint fills every need from air-mattresses lofted above the living room to a kitchen for cooking food. Mike Jones, one of the brains behind Encapsulated Studios, also runs I Hate Punk Rock Records, a label focused on local music. Jones takes his experience working with bands on the ground-level and uses it to fill a niche with a laid back vibe that invites creativity.
