We also wanted to try and help bring attention to the fact that most of our local music venues are really struggling right now, and a lot will most likely close. Please read this very informative and downright scary article Block Club wrote recently and then sign the form below it. This really is an urgent matter.

Save Our Stages:

We have a ton of new releases in this weekend and our used bins are overflowing right now as we have bought a lot of great collections lately and they are all priced to move!! Come say hi!!!

See you all soon!!
