Best of Boston

2004 Best Music, New

Newbury Comics

When was the last time you saw a CD for under $10? Newbury Comics regularly prices select new releases under 10 bucks and dozens more under $12. Add that to the terrific selection of music by local artists, regular in-store appearances by bands, and hard-to-find imports and singles, and it’s easy to see why this is the music store of choice for area aficionados. The newly expanded Newbury Street flagship now has even more space for DVDs, T-shirts, kitschy action figures, and (of course) comics.
