    Of course their collection is fantastic. They even have hard to find anime DVDs. More importantly though, don't miss the free live concerts from up and coming artists.

    Huge selection with rare stuff on the walls. Jazz vinyl section is very well rounded, a lot of new represses and original pressings. Check used records they have in sleeves & new arrivals!

    Skateboarding may not be a crime, but shoplifting is and everyone is a suspect. Lots of stuff yet somehow they're always out of what I want. Pricey.
