The Sound Garden
The role of Baltimore's central new-and-used, vinyl-and-CD, DVD-and-BluRay, music-and-more-music store has been comfortably played for more than two decades by the Sound Garden, in the heart of Fells Point, which stays open till midnight on weekends and features the city's biggest stock of physical music. It's an enjoyable hangout spot. Not only do the shelves teem with the latest in everything from hotly tipped indie rock to streets-approved rap, but also because the Sound Garden has one of the friendliest staffs you could hope for. And if you care to broadcast your finds, they sell DJ equipment as well.
