Best Music Store

Record Revolution

In a city that lacks the best of the national chains (Tower and Virgin Records, specifically), you gotta rely on the indie stores. Record Revolution might not have the best selection, but it does have a knowledgeable staff (which includes former Pere Ubu drummer Scott Krauss), a basement full of vinyl, a good selection of bootleg videos, and an array of imported posters (we're particularly partial to the ones for the Prince and Pink Floyd shows in Cologne, Germany). Plus, you can find an assortment of 'zines, music-oriented DVDs, and a large selection of music by local bands.
