  • Transported back to my teenage years when I would spend hours in the local record store thumbing through every single lp. No online reviews or previews to go by - just the album art and a gut reaction...  more »
  • Enter here, even if it is just to know, worth. It is to return time to the time of the cassette, lp´s, or cd´s with music from the 60´as. Although they also have modern music, this place offers for sale videos of series or not easy to find movies, unpublished cd´s, turntable, walkmans and portable cd devices with reasonable prices.

  • What a great record store. They have it all in all formats. I was looking for local artists. They have a whole wall dedicated to local stuff. Listening stations were set up through the store plus you ...  more »

  • There're a lot of reasons to be irritated at Austin. The residents can be somewhat smug and seem to believe they invented weird. The traffic in Austin is pretty awful, typical of a town that has grown too fast. And like most of Texas, it's just too hot in Austin. But the most irritating thing about Austin is Waterloo Records. It's the kind if record store every town wants, but somehow only Austin has. I never fail to find twice as much as I can afford. It's why I drive 4 hours to shop there. Jerks.
  • I'm a very passionate vinyl enthustiast and I enjoy spending many hours inside the record store flipping for good finds... I have a list of albums that I am always on the look for, and on occasions I will call around the few local shops to see if any are in stock... Today I called three places before calling Waterloo, (just because it is a bit far of a drive for me), and not only did they have what I needed, but the customer service I received was phenomenal! When I called a Mr. Michael Flowers answered the phone... He not only went to personally check to look for my requested items, but he offered to put what he did have in stock on hold for me, and whatever he didn't have he placed an order just for! He did this all without sounding like it was a hassle for him, or that he could he doing something better with his time... Mr. Flowers... thank you from the bottom of my heart for brightening my day. You are a true gem, and have easily made Waterloo my new FIRST music purchasing destination.
  • Great selection, great independent record shop in Austin, prices are reasonable on certain items. Good for product you want right now instead of waiting on Amazon to deliver. Cheaper items on Amazon but, sometimes going to a record store is just better.
  • Great staff and feels really friendly. The selection is great too. There is stuff from Metal all the way over to stuff like HipHop. If I ever get the chance I will definitely return.
  • Great selection of CD's and Vinyl records. Prices for new releases are discounted so new music is obtainable. The store is always worth a visit.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
