Best Retail Record Store

Sam the Record Man

Not only can you buy your favourite music at your favourite retail record store, if you’re lucky, you might catch the band on Sam’s stage. Over the past year, there were in-store appearances by Scribbler, Amelia Curran, Old Man Luedecke, the Just Friends crew and more. “Now local bands are coming in to talk to us,” says store manager Sean Passmore. “It would be great to do it every week!” Sam’s staff were really excited during the Junos when Luke Doucet made an appearance at a Six Shooter Record event. But lately, you’ve been clamouring over music from the local ladies---Curran, Jill Barber and Rose Cousins. 1656 Barrington, 423-6441
