From Our Editors

Transistor’s love for local art and music is immediately evident when patrons enter the store’s Lincoln Avenue space, with visitors greeted by an eye-pleasing mélange of books, records, electronics, and musical instruments, many with Chicago connections. Deep-pine-green walls bear paintings, photographs, and prints by locally based visual artists, as well as silk-screened gig posters from bygone local shows. Books from Chicago arts-and-culture publishers such as Continuum and Taschen delve into film, photography, music, and other forms of creative expression. An ample stock of vinyl and CDs by indie-rock, punk, and classic-rock artists pairs with high-quality sound equipment, such as turntables and headphones from Numark. Regular in-store live performances by area musicians are dutifully recorded and posted on Transistor’s website, also home to a regular podcast featuring music curated by an eclectically minded five-person crew of store DJs. Periodic classes in skills such as oil and acrylic painting, home recording technology, and basic photography help transform art lovers into artists.
