Listen closely.

Do you hear that?

No?

Well, just give it a few more hours.

Because here comes Spinster Records, an Oak Cliff vinyl shop that’s peddling an impressive record collection and the occasional T-shirt. They open tonight at 6pm, with beer-and-live-music-type festivities running tonight and all day tomorrow.

This place is a real audio gold mine. The walls and wooden crates are stocked full of records—classics, new stuff, obscure albums. The shelves are sporting a few turntables and amps. The red front counter has a built-in DJ booth. And there’s a little stage in back for hosting musicians. (See the slideshow here.)

So go ahead and introduce yourself to David. He’s the owner, and he’ll be happy to teach you the nuances of record player upkeep. Or point you in the direction of some underground Texas punk rock or suggest something from this British upstart called the Beatles.

And if you’re in the market for a hat, belt or T-shirt, you’re still in the right place. Because they’ve got those things. And because, surely, you could use a shirt that says “Lyle F**kin’ Lovett” on the front.

To go with your Willie F**kin’ Nelson pants.
