This off the beaten path, independent store is bigger than it looks from the outside: the premises are unexpectedly roomy, and every shelf is chockablock with CDs and vinyl, both new and secondhand. Under the shop's exposed beam ceilings, find an extensive library of top 40 crowd-pleasers and timeless classics, amid rarer, more underground gems. Don't forget to glance at Fingerprints' schedule of live performances as well, which happen many times a week and feature both up-and-coming acts and big names (Run River North and Rick Springfield, to name a few).

Fingerprints is an epic spot in the middle of downtown Long Beach. Whether you're looking for a new record or you just want to grab a coffee in a cool spot, this is the place to do it. They are always bringing in pretty good bands as well for live music and the owners are really in-sync with the neighborhood that it feels like it's an anchor in the community. They also have books and clothes and other merchandise as well. Definitely worth a trip, especially since so many record stores are struggling today, I don't ever want to see this one go out of business.
