Grimey's New and Preloved Music
Metallica fans already know this vinyl oasis well: it's where the band taped 2010's raucous Live at Grimey's. (If "Harvester of Sorrow" is any indication, a few shelves didn't survive the evening.) Phoenix, Brian Wilson and the Black Keys have also stopped by for performances and/or signings. But to Grimey's customers, the famous faces only hold equal appeal to the store's selection: over 300,000 albums in stock, one-third of them on vinyl, spanning every fathomable genre and reasonably priced. The store is doing so well with records, they're currently in the process of replacing many CD racks with vinyl ones – add that to the brisk turntable sales and Grimey's is a true audiophile's paradise.
