La Locataire

Parasol is such a great store. The prices are very fair, and the selection is some of the best i've seen in the area. The owners are also nice, friendly, and will help you find anything you need. I love the atmosphere (as it is located within a bike shop,) and their discogs section is also robust and large. Give this store a try!


Absolutely cooler than cool! I go here all the time to get my vinyl fix. There's a lot of history in this place that you don't get anywhere else in town. Great finds, great prices and a wealth of knowledge. They also have a great video collection, and some of the coolest synth wave 80's sci fi magazines that are a joy to be able to thumb through in person. Go there now!

Best record store in town, bar none. Sure, maybe it doesn't have the selection of, say, Exile on Main Street, but there's still a darned good selection (with new stuff always coming in), the records are in good shape, and the prices are outright bargains. If you only have the chance to stop at one record store, make this the one -- you won't come away disappointed, especially if your tastes skew toward the retro side of music.

This place is wonderful. And when I say that, I am being completely serious. The guy there was very nice, the prices were wonderful, and the selection was marvelous. I got a rolling stones vinyl for $2.50 (the cover was kind of destroyed but the music is what counts), and the total for four discs (genesis, elton john, rolling stones, white nights soundtrack) was only $20! Will definitely be coming back!

Great little store! If you like late 70s and 80s alternative/classic rock, this is the place for you! They have a relatively small collection(I sifted through most of it in an hour) but you'll find some pretty great bargains. It's hard to find stores these days where the prices for used records aren't jacked up to ridiculous prices and this place manages to have a great selection at affordable prices for a vinyl enthusiast on a budget.
