Living right outside of Washington D.C. has allowed me to explore many different venues. The following are my favorite venues for both concerts and record shopping.
Mobius Records (Fairfax, Virginia)
I feel the need to say that this record store is where I choose to shop the most (90 percent of my records come from this shop). I also take a lot of recommendations from the shop owner, Dempsey, who is constantly opening my eyes to new music. Please visit this shop when you are in the neighborhood. They have an excellent selection of new records and are very fairly priced.
Hill And Dale (Georgetown)
Plan 9 Music (Carytown, Richmond, Virginia)
Rock and Roll Hotel
