It was very cool! Didn't last long though, once they had to start paying me more than $5 day when my work experience ended I didn't get many shifts and unfortunately I got shafted, just not enough work!

The Soundgarden, I'm going to be dropping by next week for record store day later on after work. I love that place, they have everything from Autechre to Sir Richard Bishop. It was voted second best record store in the US, second to the almighty Amoeba records!

Still in business 30+ years later. I started coming here for vinyl in the late 70's, when they were located in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. Now located in Gloucester, MA and still going strong after all these years. I usually buy most of my vinyl at record shows or online these days, but I still enjoy coming to this shop a couple of times a year and spending a few hours digging through the record bins.

Psy-Fi, your local record shop is the shop from High Fidelity?

I refuse to watch Hi-Fidelity, I absolutely refuse. I feel like I get enough **** for spending all of my money on records, the last thing I need is to tell people I saw that movie, it would solidify my status as a POS hipster.

The front of the shop looks a bit similar from the inside, but I'm pretty sure High Fidelity was filmed in Chicago.
