Dan Cook moved his record store, Gimme Gimme Records, from New York’s East Village to LA. He tells us what pulled him 4,465km from East to West: “LA is great for records because lots of people live in houses with garages, so there are a lot of records still coming out of storage. People still have those old boxes of records that they still haven’t got rid of. When I had my shop in NYC, I felt like those collections were few and far between. Also, in the last few years, there has been a boom of great little shops popping up that cater to vinyl. As far as seeing bands live, there are an amazing amount of live venues and little theaters, so you aren't always going to the same old places to see shows."
