Obituary for January 18, 2013

Posted by on Saturday, January 5, 2013

Another one bites the dust. One of my favorite record stores is closing this month because of steeply increasing rent in a near downtown Seattle neighborhood. So this is my call to the world wide interweb... buy some damn records, CD's and tapes at your local record store because it may not be there tomorrow.

The Easy Street records in Queen Anne Seattle is closing January 18th. There will, however, be one final in-store performance by none other than Yo La Tengo. So if you are in Seattle go check that out and send Easy Street off with a bang! I myself purchased a fare share of CD's and records there and even caught one in store (shout out to Joe, Zeb and Leah!) Luckily there is a second location in West Seattle that has a great selection of new and used vinyl and CD's plus a cool cafe.

Hopefully record store closures do not become a trend though this is not the first and probably not the last.
