A well-rounded music collection is a sign of a well-rounded person, whereas a well-octagoned music collection means that you’re been listening to stop signs on your turntable. Give the green light to recorded sound with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of CDs, vinyl, movies, and more at Vertical House Records, located on Seminole Drive.
Voted "Best Tennessee Valley Record and CD Store 2010" by CityVoter, Vertical House Records has assembled a collection of about 20,000 recent and classic releases from indie-rock, psych, folk, pop, new wave, and punk artists.

Curious fans of harmonious sound can chat with a laid-back, music-savvy Vertical House staff member, who'll happily recommend a record or two from their vault. Those looking to brush up on Batman and Green Lantern's new lightning-fast quilting powers can browse the shop's extensive selection of pristine comic books and graphic novels. Vertical House also offers turntables and stereo equipment for aspiring disc jockeys and shock jocks.

- Vertical House is as local as it gets.... there's nowhere else in town with the selection of vinyl. – Tom M., CityVoter
- Vertical House stands out because it not only features used vinyl of all the classics you'd want (and there are a lot of used classics if you have the time to dig) but also has a well-curated selection of new indie music that you probably won't find elsewhere in town. – Geoff G., CityVoter
