Reptilian opened in 1989, and to this day, it's still THE place to satisfy your punk, indie, noise, hardcore, garage, and local music cravings.
I remember going to the shop not long after it opened, as a 14-year old punk rocker, and being absolutely overwhelmed by so much music that I just HAD to have.
Since then, they've added racks of obscure and hard to find magazines, such as Answer Me! and Hate. You'll also find tons of zines from Baltimore and elsewhere. They have racks of random comic books; and hard to find, cult classic movies.
Reptilian also boasts their own record label, as well as partnerships with other labels.

*Note: Reptilian will be moving to 2547 N. Howard Street sometime this summer. Check their site for updates.
