Being a record nerd in Phoenix used to be a bit more difficult. Granted, there are a couple good record stores, ones that as a record nerd I have spent hundreds of dollars at, but there was always a void that had to be filled with trips to San Francisco or Los Angeles.
Revolver Records fills that void. Any self-respecting record nerd must fill his/her shelves with obscure Krautrock, prog, psych and jazz. And Revolver has it, along with less obtuse titles. The thing that I find most impressive is that they are always buying records, when going through their new arrivals section it is always full of new things, not the same records that have been their for months. They also have bands play their on First Friday and have live experimental music on Sunday nights.
I am so glad that Revolver opened in Phoenix and am glad that I can give them my hard-earned cash in exchange for cool records.
Revolver Records is located at 918 N. 2nd St. in Evans Churchill (light rail station at Central/Roosevelt) — 602.795.4980
The DPJ Yelper of the Week offers honest insight on a Downtown business to help you explore your core. DPJ hopes that by partnering with Yelp to spread the good word about well-loved Downtown spots, you’ll spread your patronage and support local business.
Yelp is a social networking and local search engine that provides the reviews of places and things that matter to you. Simply log in, pick a place and queue up your inner critic. You can write a beaming review of your favorite gelato spot, or a scathing portrayal of that rental car facility you had to use after that curb came out of nowhere. Yelp’s reviews are at once honest, uncensored, wildly hilarious and true. Heck, the site must be doing something right — it had 26 million viewers just last month!
