Music is the most beautiful medium to tell a significant other "I love you" or "No one understands me like I would like to think Orville Redenbacher would." Discover a song that expresses your inner idiosyncrasies with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of CDs, vinyl, and more at Slowtrain, located on East Broadway. This Groupon expires on November 30, 2010.
Slowtrain supplies both the latest and classic releases from indie-rock, electronica, jazz, blues, alt-country, and experimental artists, with special attention to records from independent labels. Browse the store's selection of newly released CDs ($14 average price), or find a musical nugget in the used-CD section ($7.99 average price). Record collectors can flip through the newly pressed vinyl ($18 average price) and used vinyl ($6.99 average price) to find a classic addition to their anthology of Pat Boone records. Those searching for a local music scene will revel in the extensive selection of Utah artists, most of which is available to sample. Harmony explorers can nod along to new music while studying the stylized rock 'n' roll posters adorning the walls.
Slowtrain is a partner of the nonprofit Buy Local First organization, which highlights Utah's independently owned businesses. While mega-conglomerates have the technology and resources to supply edible records in pizza flavors, Slowtrain's knowledgeable, passionate staff members afford a personal touch, especially with their unpretentious attitude toward music. They even offer to specially order any CD, DVD, or LP currently in print.
This Groupon is not valid for the purchase of concert tickets.
- Slowtrain is an excellent local music shop. It's small but has that curated feel that you might expect in store [sic] owned by a young couple. – Jeff H., Yelp
- This store has an impeccable collection of CDs and vinyl, mostly from independent labels and local artists, and I was amazed at the vast selection contained in a rather small, intimate space. – Elizabeth S., Yelp
