Fargo, with its wooden windows and neon lights wouldn’t look out of place in San Francisco. It’s got a USA feel inside too (despites being a stone’s throw from the Canal Saint-Martin), with collections that cover ‘country’ music and all its forms (rock, pop, folk and new-wave). The shop’s only been around since 2010, but it’s got good connections: regular free showcases draw the crowds (Mariarty and Steve Smyth have previously played here), and when the artists themselves don’t come, Fargo holds première nights for new albums. Also look out for the celebrity clientele: Lords of Altamont and Neal Casal occasionally pop by.
