Since 1992, Fingerprints in Long Beach has welcomed independent music lovers of all kinds. Originally located in Belmont Shores, their new location in the East Village Art District offers more than just your average CD retail store experience.
Fingerprints has everything from new and used CDs, DVDs, Vinyl Records and Blu-Ray discs. Above all they’re known for having a solid series of in-store appearances from bands like Foo Fighters, Cold War Kids, Jack Johnson, and Fun. – just to name a few. CDs are usually made after each performance and are available for purchase.
This place is filled with “music, art, literature, and culture,” says store owner Rand Foster. Their new two story location is four times the size of the original spot. It now includes a book room with couches and an adjacent coffee shop. It’s a great place to study, relax, or read. They have a bunch of awesome books in music, humor, science and technology.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and attentive. If you’re a crate digger, don’t miss the vinyl bargain bins. Bargain prices range from .99 – $2.99.
