My friend wanted to go here for Record Store Day. He was looking for a specific record. Unfortunately they sold out of the one he wanted. The staff was helpful, they were willing to order it for my friend. But we're from LA and we were just visiting for the holiday. The store was a cool with lots of vinyl, skateboards and books. You should check this place out.
This is an excellent store with a MASSIVE selection. I spent easily an hour searching through all they had. Everything is clearly labeled, but I just had to look through it all! Every person I interacted with there was very knowledgeable and super friendly. They didn't have the one record I was looking for (The soundtrack to Heavy Metal 1981), but I did find two other records I was looking for!If you're looking for Vinyl Records, or a new skateboard even, check these guys out. They Also have turntables and speakers if you don't have your own stuff already! One stop shop for sure.

A really nice store filled with awesome records that pretty much no one can afford. The new vinyl selection is amazing, but be sure to cash in a few savings bonds on the way down there. Almost nothing I looked at was under 35 dollars. And the small poorly organized used section was no better. Records in fair condition priced at 40 dollars. Ridiculous and highly disappointing. I was going to buy the new Hendrix Live at the LA forum Lp, but I just couldn't bring myself to support this store. Sorry. I won't be going back.
This is a great & wonderful vinyl records, music accessories & skateboards shop. The owner Nick & his crew are friendly & welcoming,product knowledgeable, upbeat and always delightful to interact with. It's a fun place to hangout and shop.
Clean, well lit, well organized, and easy to shop. It's a small store so don't expect an epic catalog. But each square foot is full of gems. Selections include Vinyl records, Books, Cassettes, Skateboards & accessories, home audio, and clothes. Lots of gift items. Great little store.
