I had a business event in Long Beach, CA tonight, so naturally I went there a little early and hit record shops. Dax Records had a small inventory but it was a great, eclectic selection curated by a nice staff. How nice? They were letting film students use the shop for a short for free while I was there. The other shop, Dizzy on Vinyl, had a broader selection of this and that, and I found a few cool items surprisingly cheap. And the decorations inside were wild (shoulda taken a photo).
