Bleecker Bob's - CLOSED
New York, NY 10012
Village Voice's Description
With the RIAA still hollering about its impending file-sharing lawsuits, what better time to support your local broadband-free proprietor of live and rare recordings? Vacate your roommate's computer chair, wiggle into some pants, and proceed directly to Bleecker Bob's, where you'll mingle (in the flesh) with New York's classiest audiophiles, goths, beatniks, and punks. Considering the RIAA's going rate (upward of $750 in fines for each downloaded track), this place is a virtual steal.
Tips from foursquare
Nicely cataloged disco, new wave, gospel, exotica and all kinds of rare grooves. The owner knows his stuff...

KCRW FRINGE BENEFITS provider!
Rock and collectible records. They have quite a bit of hard to find punk and 60s and 70s rock at prices that will make your wallet hurt, but if you're willing they've got some good stuff.
Very very nice owner, very helpful and patient. And generous discount if you buy a lot!
