Volcano Head

Not currently accessible, since Daddy Kool Records moved locations. Drove to their new location to ask how to find this, and they gave some vague directions. Drove down a weird gravel path and got a peek of him. Not a great view, but still saw him.

Jan 26, 2024 Update: Steve Braun sez "The gate was wide open. Also, you can get a decent view from the walking trail that goes behind the building."

The address listed is right on, but it's behind a fence, and you can't see it. Find the actual mini industrial park entrance that it's in, kinda nearby, and hang a left after you enter the park. We never actually saw the record store, btw.
