Most evenings as you walk down State Street near the Fiesta 5 Theatre and what used to be a Borders bookstore, you’re greeted by a cacophony of guitar chords bouncing and booming from the nearby two-story parking garage. The typical passerby will wander on, pleasantly amused by the sourceless tunes but simply not curious enough to find out who or what is up there.

Our new resident videographer, Marz Miller, took the time the other night to check things out, meeting Bruce Goldish whose “fingerstyle” guitar playing has turned the garage into his personal concert hall with impeccable acoustics. A Minnesota native and registered nurse in Cottage Hospital’s intensive care unit, 52-year-old Goldish has played the structure for seven years and talked to The Independent about his experiences.
