I’ve been a Staple fan for years and still get giddy when I walk into his Lower East Side creative mecca, Reed Space. But something bigger has been happening lately. Jeff Staple is everywhere and his latest collaborations are making street culture kids like me go ape shit.

Sparkplug is a prime example that the sharing economy is in full swing. As a half-assed drummer, I would have killed for access to a site that helped me rent practice spaces and a kit on demand without lugging around gear.
