A well-rounded music collection is a sign of a well-rounded person, whereas a well-octagoned music collection means that you’ve been listening to stop signs on your turntable. Give the green light to recorded sound with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of merchandise at Headline Records.
Lauded as the U.S. Commerce Association's 2011 Best of Local Business in the CD retail category, Headline Records keeps shelves stacked with CDs, DVDs, books, clothing, and accessories with an emphasis on punk rock, metal, and thrash. Vinyl turntable toppers such as Fugazi's monolithic album, Repeater, ($15.99) create a potent sonic backdrop to any party, and collectible records such as the Misfits' raucous Static Age offers up the perfect jams to play during a child's birthday or first nose piercing.

A wide variety of independently published books and zines hip readers to new developments in the indie scene and lengthy think pieces about the decline of professional mohawk jousting.
