If it's music related, odds are Waterloo has it, or can get it for you. CDs, Vinyl, DVDs, boxed sets, new, used, imports, T-Shirts, Austin souvenirs, postcards, ephemera--it's all there. Plenty of free parking, but can get crowded, especially if they are having one of...More

A dying breed . A real record store with cd, vinyl and dvd. Employees look like they know their stuff and not just punching the clock. I could have stayed all afternoon.

Waterloo has cd's, vinyl, dvd's, and accessories geared towards the music lover. Lots of music related trinkets (guitar shaped spatulas, beatles lunch boxes, metallica bobbleheads, etc.) They have a knowledgable, laid back staff there to help if you need it. There is also a performance...More
