Record Hog

The Hog is for vinylphiles who want record buying to be an unpredictable treasure hunt. Looking for a mint copy of a Fugs LP? A stack of Scottish Indie rock? Come on over. Records, CDs, and cassettes are piled waist-high. Gig posters run three-deep along the walls. The store sells everything from rare 45s to back issues of the British psych-rock bible Bucketfull of Brains.
