Encore Records & Video

Lubbock son Charles Lokey started a video store in Garland in 1984, expanded it to include music at Austin's Arboretum in 1988, and 20 years later continues both on Anderson Lane with Austin's best selection of heavy metal discs, stickers, and Ts. Full-service video rental and music one-stop never takes a back seat to the sprawling emporium's sweet in-store stage or the new website, but if Dangerous Toys/Broken Teeth frontman Jason McMaster endorses Encore by working there, you know it's old-school, hardcore, and heavy.
