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 $20, you get $40 worth of music, art, books, electronics, and more at Transistor in Andersonville. Perched atop a media fault line connecting sound and vision, Transistor serves as an eclectic emporium of music, art, books, and electronics. Pillage the plethora of new releases and reissues on LP and CD ($7.50+), or feed an aesthetic addiction by perusing an ever-rotating collection of local paintings, photographs ($8–$400), and vinyl-record clocks ($20–$40), which serve as timepieces as well as stylish decorative alternatives to holographic clown portraiture. The large selection of books, including Mozipedia: The Encylopedia of Morrissey and The Smiths by Simon Goddard ($30) and Just Kids by Patti Smith ($16), ensures that no conversation will be devoid of obscure references to common surnames. Among the aurally oriented electronics, state-of-the-art WESC headphones ($18–$125) help envelop ears in soothing tunes, shutting out the noise of snoring coworkers.

  • Even if you happen to stop by when there isn’t an event, you’ll be plenty entertained by the merch: records, coffee-table books and electronic goods such as turntables and iPod speakers. – Kevin Aeh, Time Out Chicago
  • I want to thank Transistor for bringing even more cool points to Andersonville…I've never been anywhere like it in the city. – Carly O., Yelp

This place is awesome! Full of beautiful photography, interesting books, and even awesome things for the home! The owner was incredibly friendly and was very patient as I waited for my husband to meet me there. We ended up with some neat screen printed pillows for the couch and a few other items. The owner also mentioned that they are giving the Groupon price for their photography classes, which is also awesome!
