As one of the precious few independent record stores in the Valley, Steve Zimmerman and TJ Jordan's music emporium has become a beloved stomping ground for local audiophiles and vinyl junkies. Besides boasting a plethora of platters (as well as enough CDs, music ephemera, and memorabilia to rival your neighborhood Zia's), Revolver also draws in music fans during the number of live shows it hosts every month. First Friday usually sees a handful of rock, punk, and ska bands performing outside, while the weekly "Outer Bounds of Sound" affair on Sundays features eclectic and experimental musicians doing their thing inside. Be sure not to trip over their microphone cables while hunting for an unscratched copy of We're Only in It for the Money.
