    A Texas institution. You can listen to LPs over the sound system to figure out what you want.

    Also they have a pretty tight collection of other things like day of the dead stuff by a local artist, tshirts, posters and box sets

    Best place to find both indie and old stuff. I got a young girls album AND a till Tuesday (Aimee manns old band) album.

    Go dive into their dollar bin but be careful and look at the record for scratches. I found a copy of a Pat Benatar album but it kept skipping on "Heartbreaker." Not good.

    Free beer and free instore performances. What's not to love. Come out and support local business.

    Houston record lovers went into deep depression when this indie shop abruptly shut down in 2006. But it was reincarnated better than ever to a new location in Shepherd Plaza in 2007.
