Not only is this one of the coolest record stores in Austin, it is also one of the most unique and true to Austin vibes!
Waterloo Records first opened its doors here in April of 1982 and later moved to its current location a littler further north on Lamar – a massive upgrade from its previous 1200 square feet. Although Austin has seen so much growth and change since then, there’s no doubt Waterloo has held true to its original concepts and affordable pricing, which has created an amazing customer following. Not only does Waterloo offer an unbeatable record collection here in Austin, but their live events are always exciting and intimate. If you are ready to get down for SXSW, we highly recommend you stop by and see the amazing 2016 Day Party lineup that they have to offer!
“Instead of catering to the music consumer, Waterloo catered to the music lover, if only because we were music lovers too. It was true then, it certainly still is today.” – Waterloo Records
