The Beastie Boys Get Mural At Paul’s Boutique Location
Paul's Boutique, the New York City store The Beastie Boys named their sophomore album after, no longer exists, but the current location will get a blast from the past, today, when an artists will create a huge mural to commemorate the 25-year-old album. Artist Danielle Mastrion will design a large mural on the side of the current proprietor's establishment, Wolfnights. The mural is a venture started by Beastie Boys super fan LeRoy McCarthy. Earlier this year, McCarthy failed at an attempt to get the intersection of Rivington and Ludlow streets renamed Beastie Boys Square.
Paul's Boutique was originally released on July 25, 1989 and though initially panned commercially the album has become since become a cult classic.
