Carrying a huge selection of sounds, Waterloo is always the first in town to get the new releases. If they don't have something on hand, they'll order it for you promptly. They love looking for arcane stuff. The store has a popular preview listening section, offers compilation tapes of Austin groups, and sells tickets to all major-label shows around town. It also hosts frequent in-store CD-release performances by local bands. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. There's a video annex just west of the record store (tel. 512/474-2525) and, for purists, a vinyl section.
