That one is definitely on my list.

I have an nice Onkyo record player that my father-in-law gave to me some time ago after he replaced it with a newer one. I don't buy vinyl that often, but I do like to collect intriguing oddities and albums with gorgeous artwork.

WHATTTTT!!!! Atomic is closed???!?!?! Crap. I hit that store every time I'm in WI, usually 2-3 times a year. Was just there in August. I was in WI in December but don't remember if I visited Atomic during that trip. Been buying from Atomic since 1990. Wow. I've gotten some good U2 vinyl there over the years.

I support two local record shops very frequently. Thank you, Sonic Boom and Easy Street of Seattle, WA!

My favorite Milwaukee record shop recently closed. RIP, Atomic Records.

That was the first place I discovered U2 bootlegs. Cassette bootlegs!

A friend who still lives in Wisconsin had shared a link to their site a few months ago announcing their closing. Not sure if it's happened yet or not.

This applies to bootlegs as well. I haven't even listened to half of what I own past the first few songs to determine if the sound quality is satisfactory.

But I'm with BIMM. That Wilco set is the item I'm most excited about on the list and may pick it up for the occasion.

I just called them. They are officially closed. Guy told me there would be some sort of web presence back online in a month or so, possibly through Amazon. They had a week of blow out sales and a big "rummage" sale event at the MSOE campus over the weekend.

I'll be out there in June, and I would have cruised over and been really put out to find them closed. Well, here's hoping Oakland Gyros will still be there!

Isn't it really more indie to buy vinyls and not have a record player?

Yes indeed.

I like to think of it as meaning I like spending money more than actually listening to music.


OK, I don't like to think of it that way at all.

I looked up a few of those releases from my supplier, and he doesn't show them available. I wonder how one would qualify for "indie-ness" as I thought that what might be what I was considered, though I don't sell the usual kind of stuff.

Support your local stores, while they are still around. They're a dying breed

I can't remember how that all works. You have to be an independent store, but part of some "independent chain union" type thing. I remember reading about it somewhere once, and it honestly read as being ultra "corporate". I usually don't care about that kind of thing, but it just seemed fairly ironic in this context.

I don't have a local record store, as it turns out. I can only find CDs at Best Buy, and that's 25 minutes away. And you wonder why I download.
