Ear X-tacy

Louisville, KY

A big, comfortable space in a medium-sized, comfortable town, Ear X-tacy is arguably Louisville's second-greatest tourist attraction after the Kentucky Derby. Yet there's nothing touristy about it: From a packed schedule of in-store performances to a generous selection of local artists — not to mention national and international ones — this is a classic hometown record shop, with generous amounts of music-related items (not just CDs and vinyl). You know that long out of print title you've always hoped to run across in person? Chances are that it's here — and that it's cheap.
