This isn’t your typical cluttered, dust-ridden record shop. Opened in 2010 by DJ Chris Dixon, the space is spotless and modern with custom-built shelves, gold-leaf signage, color-coordinated displays and friendly service. Dixon makes regular buying trips to Europe to replenish his supply, which focuses on international pop, early blues and Americana, jazz, folk and experimental music. Here, you won’t have to dig through random unknowns to find the real deal. And though Dixon prides himself on his selection of rare finds for enthusiasts, the racks are also well-stocked with classic fare, from the Beatles to The Who.
