We’re here on the web to keep in touch with our Vertigo friends and customers, and to help you keep in touch with what’s going on at the store and in music everywhere. Check back often (say, weekly) for store coupons, specials, new releases and all the latest info.

Oh, and you can put away your credit card. We’re not here to sell you anything…..yet. You still have to come downtown and visit us in the flesh for that.

New Arrivals

Black Lips
200 Million


The deliberately sloppy, wildly prolific scatter­punk band with the headline- grabbing live shows is poised for a wide break­through on its fifth album.

Steven Wilson

Wilson has recorded a library of material with Porcupine Tree, basically a solo project, and moves in a drone/shoegaze-oriented sound for his first “official” solo album.

M. Ward
Hold Time

Now deservedly playing to a fairly large audience, Ward synthesizes his various writing/production talents on a record that is bright by his standards.

Years of Refusal

Moz’s middle-age resurgence has been a pleasant surprise in recent years, and his solid track record continues with a raw-er than usual effort here.
