Joey Lucas is flying in the face of the economy. As independent bookstores and record stores shutter the country 'round (they've been fading fast here for some time), Lucas has opened a humble store with grand ambitions. He's only using a fraction of the 4,000 square feet he has at 1910 W. Third St. (next to Warehouse Liquor and what's soon to be the Star Bar). The entry way holds all the records, an adjacent space serves a recording studio and a bedroom-sized room for in-store shows. Look for the store to have the sweaty, lets-get-up-close-and-personal vibe of a house show on Friday as two of Little Rock's finest rock acts, the Moving Front
and Magic Hassle, share the bill with experimental rockers Ten Speed
