Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)

I think this is why I had my initial reaction to the revamped Muxtape - the lack of bios, pics, discographies helps to escape the 'meme economy' and bands-as-brands. I can see why people aren't impressed, but I like almost naive aspect of it - "it's just about the music, man".
