Ohhh, I knew that!!! :lol:
yeah, a lot of great places. But than again it's a huge city so I guess that's what to expect. You have to have some great places where you are Alex :)

I found a music store here in my city that's actually pretty good (in comparison to the others I know) :) but I still prefer the one that I usually go, it has a vinyl section and a section for used cds, in which you can find some pretty interesting stuff

Where's it located? and are there any pictures?
Who knows maybe someone from Brazil will be browsing and find it helpful :)

it's here in my city, Sao Jose dos Campos (in SP state, if any brazilian ever reads this :wink2: )
I will try to take a picture of it when I can :) it is actually on a mall that's close to my school, sometimes I go there after school :)
but it's like, I'm sure any store in the US will have more stuff than it, but for the brazilian 'reality' is a pretty good one, just for the fact that it has a vinyl section.

sure 8D just remember that I've never been to these stores, but I plan to check the ones I can in my upcoming (\o/) trip :)

so, if somebody ever travels to Aachen, Germany, here's what I found:

CDs & Vinyl R. Reising
Theaterstraße 15
52062 Aachen

Giftland Music
Malteserstraße 26
52062 Aachen

Musikladen-Aachen.de
Schützenstraße 23
52062 Aachen

site: http://www.musikladen-aachen.de

this one has a website with an option to change the language to English. apparently they sell stuff in the internet and ship worldwide, if it interests anyone. I didn't look too much on the catalogue, but I saw that they have 3 soundgarden bootlegs, no alice in chains (:|) and a mudhoney bootleg.

Tam Tam (great name, huh? lol)
Jakobstraße 82
52064 Aachen

site: http://www.tamtamrecordshop.de (it's not working here, but if you wanna try :) )

Xclusiv Records
Komphausbadstraße 26
52062 Aachen

site: http://www.xclusiv-records.de (which goes into a strange website, I don't think they still own the domain)

Musik am Meilenstein
Trierer Straße 729
52078 Aachen

and that's it :) oh, I found all these addresses here: http://www.alles-in-aachen.de/_-musik.html

well... when I go there next month, I'll try to go on some of those places and I'll tell you if I found something interesting :)

I think the pictures might be a bit over done. Maybe just have the name of the store in geographic order. I can do it for sure, not a problem. I'll post it either later tonight or tomorrow and you can put it wherever you want. :)

Why? A single picture can tell you more about the store than words ever could

I was just worried about the size of the pictures, some are large some are microscopic and sometimes you can't find some pictures. That's the only real basis for me not wanting to include them :)

Oh, well I understand your point, but I think they add to the thread a feeling of like ... concreteness, like these places actually exist and they make you want to visit them.

Hey!
Bleeker Bob's is still open? I was watching an interview with White Zombie and they were talking about how they used to stop by there to drop off records!! Cool stuff!
