NileGuide Expert tip:
Live shows at their San Francisco and Berkeley locations are a great way to expand your musical horizons.
Don't be scared off by the tattooed, pierced, and fierce-looking employees (and other shoppers!) in this beloved new and used record store highlighting indie labels. They're actually more than happy to recommend some great music to you. If you're looking for the latest from Britney, this might not be the store for you (though they do have everything), but if you're into interesting music that's not necessarily on every station all the time, check this place out. You can buy, sell, and trade in this cavernous, loud Haight Street hot spot. Haight St. (btw. Shrader and Stanyan sts.). tel. 415/831-1200. www.amoeba.com. A 2nd location is at 2455 Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley, at Haste St. (tel. 510/549-1125).
