Best of Austin: End of an Ear

"Best of Austin" 2013 is coming. Let's look back at some previous bests.

It's no surprise the music gem of South Austin has sweeped the award for Best Small Record/CD Store every year since 2008, making this cozy record store a part of the Best of Austin Hall of Fame.

Best Small Record/CD Store: End of an Ear

Audiophiles, enter. A treasure trove of vintage, collectible, classic, reissued, and newly released vinyl awaits inside this cozy store. There's also an embarrassment of CD, DVD, and other media riches, to boot. And the staff? Large and in charge! The smart, savvy crew doles out doses of music recommendations, tickets to local shows, and the occasional life-coaching session. In-store events (Golden Boys! Agent Ribbons! Perfume Genius!) are not to be missed. So get off the Internet, and fire up the turntable. It just sounds better at ear's end.

End of an Ear, 2209 S. First, 512/462-6008 www.endofanear.com
