6. Gimme Gimme Records - Highland Park

Originally located in New York's East Village, Gimme Gimme relocated to Highland Park for the cheaper rent and growing vinyl culture. With close to 20,000 LPs and 12-inch singles in stock, they pack a big punch for a little shop. Due to popular demand, Dan the owner has kept the punk and new wave section fresh for locals who come in looking for punk gems like Pink Flag or God Save the Queen. 4628 York Blvd., Highland Park | 323-550-1878

5. Permanent Records - Eagle Rock

Lance and Liz are fuzzed-out rockers from Chicago. As two of the three members of garage punk outfit Endless Bummer, the two owners of Permanent Records L.A. don't give a shit about stockpiling their crates with popular records from well-known buzz bands. Permanent is purposefully designed for the scavenger of obscure vinyl, new and old, who is digging for the recent Fuzz LP, or previously unreleased Chrome records, or even some Chicago synth that never really made it out of Chicago. 1583 Colorado Blvd., Eagle Rock | 323-739-6141
