Solutions! electronics shops sells and repairs audio equipment, and has been for many years (so long that Elliott Smith used to be an employee here, before he hit it big and offed himself). The staff is sweet and knowledgeable, and the shop's outer wall has a perpetual mural dedicated to his memory, where fans can write lyrics, thoughts and notes to him. Fun fact: It's the actual wall (and the same painted image, though redone many times) that Smith stood in front of for the cover photo of his album, Figure 8. Unfortunately, the wall is also an attractive site for graffiti artists, so expect a clean slate every six months or so.
