Best Place to Buy Music: The Exchange

When you live in the rock capital of the world, you need a reliable venue from which to buy the latest and greatest tunes (and the classics, naturally.) The Exchange is where readers go to browse and congregate along aisles of CDs (they still exist), vinyl and video games. And buying is only half of the fun here. Package up your old tunes and sell them away — someone must want your Ace of Base cassette, right? — then parlay that dough into your latest scores. You sit at your computer enough already. Get up and go do the music-shopping thing in person.
