Best Record / CD Store

Waterloo Records

Remember in Empire Records when Warren whines at the record-store workers, "You think you're so cool just because you work in a record store." The Waterloo staff are those cool kids you're jealous of, who work in the coolest record store and know the obscurest bands. It's Waterloo, the quintessential Austin slack lair, where hours are lost in CD stacks, tight jeans win bonus points, and the best live music is right there. It's Waterloo. And you love it.
