Good, old fashioned Indy record store – Terrific old school punk blaring out the soundsystem, hundreds of cool shirts, and even a metal section in the back. I hope they're able to stick around, 'cause there are not many left like this one.
A throwback--both good and bad – I recently moved to Columbus and desperately wanted to support a local independent music store, and at first this looked like the place. There's a good selection, lots of t-shirts, and for the headbangers, a special metal section in the back. It's just too bad that almost everyone working is full of attitude. I've been in ther about 10 times (purshasing something almost everytime), and the staff has made eye contact with me once. The last straw was when I asked for help finding an import from the UK and was told to just order it on Amazon. It's difficult to suppor that type store. it was nice knowing you, looks like you had a great ride...maybe everyone's just in a bad mood because they know the end is near for their industry. Then again, up the street is Used Kids--go there and your faith in music-o-philes will be restored.
A veteran south campus record store, with a well-tended selection of all kinds of music. – The Sounds
The selection is mostly on disc, and features a comprehensive jazz layout, along with well-researched rock and indie racks. Magnolia does stock some vinyl, focusing on 45s as well as 7" and 12" singles from varied underground circuits.
On the Wall ...
Can't find that Sun Ra box set at Virgin? It's probably here, along with boxes of imported Miles Davis you didn't know existed.
This place stocks most decent music magazines, plus a few hard-to-follow cultish zines.
This is the place to go if you want a must-have classic that doesn't end up in used bins often. Search through the entire catalog for artists like the Rolling Stones and the Who.
