This ‘aint no HMV

What a great find. A real record store, not a multi-national clone store.

I was on a mission to get a ticket for the Athlete gig next month. Tickets for a lot of bands that play Vancouver are available from record stores or, unfortunately, Ticketmaster (not worthy a link) who happily add around $10 to the cover price. So, I found myself at Zulu Records along 4th Ave and what a smashing store it is.

Zulu is an old school store, lots of vinyl, lots of turntables, wooden counters and racks, an amazingly diverse selection of music including a complete section for local indie bands, plus early 80’s electronic arcade games to add to the atmosphere. I loved the place and can see myself spending many a happy hour thumbing through the stacks of new and used albums for sale.
