Simply the best record store EVER. As a KCRW fan with eclectic tastes, I've not once experienced a time when a Fingerprints employee did not know an artist, even unsigned artists. In-store events are frequent, they keep up email lists, and the employees are all, well, how can I say it other than young and hip? I save up my $ for when I visit Long Beach, I don't want to give my money to any other store (esp. a chain!). PLUS - your KCRW card gets you a discount!
Pros: great atmosphere, knowledgable emps, good discounts
Cons: best park on side st
