This house at the corner of Nelson and S. McLean Blvd is where Jay Reatard (Jimmy Lee Lindsey, Jr.) used to live and record. The interior of the house and Reatard's recording setup can be seen extensively in the bio-doc Better Than Something. Some interesting moments of conversation from that film come as Reatard is swinging on the front porch of this location.

On January 13, 2010, Reatard passed away at this same location from a combination of cocaine toxicity and alcohol. He was 29 years old.

Watch a short version of the documentary, called Waiting for Something.
