Where serious collectors and browsing fans rub elbows. – The Scene
The framed poster of the Monkees film "Head" on the wall here accurately captures Rockit Scientist's feel: sort of trippy, and lots of fun. Knowledgeable clerks strive to assist you in finding a new favorite record, and they're always happy to translate the florid labeling system. Records are marked with homemade genres like "proto punk U.K. freek madness." Although the store is packed with music and people, it's still kept surprisingly neat, down to the boxes of LPs lining the floor and the framed posters.
Although Rockit Scientist will please discriminating collectors (snag the Beatles' "Yesterday" 45 for $80 or a Pink Fairies LP for $60 off the back wall cache), the store also stocks everything from top-40 pop to classic rock. A small shelf of used CDs often has great finds (for a low $7), and there's also new discs from Sigur Ros to Fela Kuti.
