The Rockin’ Cowboy Western clothing store, which is a mere city block away from my apartment at Quebec and 7th, Vancouver, is moving to a new location. This is where I got my hat, boots and my shirts for the first Koboi performance at the National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 2013. I bought one black and one white version of the Rockmount Classic Sawtooth Western shirt. The white shirt is now in the collection of the National Art Gallery. Since than, I have acquired much of my best gear for the Koboi Project at the Rockin’ Cowboy. The store at 106 East Broadway closed its doors last week and the new store at 118 West Broadway is opening soon down the road, just a few blocks West on Broadway. While it feels like a loss for me, not to have Cowboy Dave, Danny Kresnyak and the milieu of the Rockin Cowboy near enough for me to imagine that they are in my own living room, I look forward to the slightly longer walk to the amazing new Rockin’ Cowboy!
