Record Score
I was in Montclair and Newark, New Jersey, yesterday for a work-related meeting. While there I had some time to walk Montclair's main shopping drag, Bloomfield Avenue, and I came across a wonderful, tiny punk record store that I must recommend if you're ever in the area. Let It Rock (424 Bloomfield Ave., Montclair, NJ 07042; 973-783-1213) doesn't have much stock, but what it does have in terms of punk, oi, hardcore, emo, ska, and garage is impressive. I picked up two new records: a promo CD of the new Lawrence Arms release and a Reagan Youth anthology. Good stuff! Some of the prices felt high, but the stuff I picked up was quite reasonable. Store opens at noon.
