Foursquare Tips

  • Widely considered one of the finest indie record stores in the world, Waterloo boasts an impressive selection of music, knowledgeable staff, fun in-store performances, and much more.
  • Top notch staff here. These guys know their stuff so don't hesitate to ask any questions. Hands down this is Austins best record shop.
  • Waterloo, a music institution, takes its name from the citys original name. Worth a trip, if only to remember what it feels like to walk into a legit record store. Jason, our Homesick Austinite

  • The used record side of the store is at least as big as the new part, if not bigger, and you can top this off with a great selection of shirts making this our top pick for Austin.
  • Did you know that you can bring in a gift card from anywhere that sells music (Best Buy, Target) and exchange it for Waterloo merchandise & music? - Bridget, LA Marketing Rep
