Concerto is simply the best place to go for vinyl shopping. It’s a music store spread out over half a city block on the Utrechtsestraat filled with -both second hand and new- vinyl, cds, books, dvds even a café – for when your arms grow weary from flipping through those endless aisles of music. Although Concerto sells many new records, I am mostly drawn to the old gems in the second-hand section. Many many hours I’ve spend here crate digging.
Another great thing about Concerto: they have regular in-store events and concerts, which are always very cozy and a great way to discover new artists. Keep an eye on the website for more info about times and dates… or even listen to their radio station! I actually just discovered they have a radio station, on where they apparently play the newest releases and their new favorites. I have been listening to it all afternoon.
