LAURIE'S + NUMERO: A COOL THING!
Laurie's owner & mastermind John unearthed an interesting-looking reel-to-reel tape last year, at a garage sale of all places! After a little detective work and social media q&a, we learned that SOLARIS was a little-known Chicago hard-psych/jazz/noise band around in the early 70s. John turned the tape over to our friends at Numero Group, who have just given this unusual and rare tape recording a proper and SUPER limited release! Since we’re the only store in the world to receive a few copies, come by and nab one REAL SOON! We have a VERY limited amount for sale, and this is a web-only release limited to 500 copies! More info on the Numero site HERE! 



HOLY BEJEEZUS! NEW USED INSANITY!

We're right in the middle of cleaning, processing, and putting out about a bazillion fresh used LPs, CDs, books and DVDs. We HIGHLY recommend swinging by this week... and checking out our racks!
