Record stores.

Posted By on Tue, May 9, 2006 at 3:31 PM

It's gotten more rare that I stop by my local indie record store, Pure Pop. Makes me feel kinda bad.

It's part laziness, part the fact that I already have too much music as it is. And eMusic/iTunes pretty much fills in a lot of blanks. Convenience kills!

But I'm actually psyched to check out Aquarius Records in San Francisco. Brooke and I will be in California at the end of June, and AQ is definitely gonna be one of our stops.

One of my favorite things to do every other week is to spend Saturday morning going through their new release list and listening to samples. I've found a lot of music that way, even when I was working at the Pop.

The AQ kids (well, they're mostly my age) are almost like rock stars to me. I'll tremble in the presence of Black Metal Andee, I'm sure.

Sucks that I'm probably going to be kind of broke, or else I'd buy a bunch of stuff. Maybe it's better that way.
