All you parents out there - don't bother! The clothes are insanely expensive and not well made. The music section is incomprehensible. The shoes are a jumble. The worst is the open-mouthed high school drop-outs they hire as clerks. They

I'm a working mom with s son and nephew - both skaters. I have dropped big bucks in this store on clothes and skate shoes. The sales clerks are usually young guys who are less than helpful. Honestly they appear to be of the high-school

Employees are just too cool here to be decent to their customers - especially if you're a parent looking to buy surf equipment or clothes for teenagers. Even my 17 year old who is very noncritical commented that the clerk was a complete

Pros: cool clothes

Cons: rude & arrogant staff

So, I'm on the search for some cool vans - the only place I can think to shop is Soundwaves. I reach the store and see a sign that says "Buy $100 worth of clothing or swim wear and get a $15 gift card." Pretty neat offer, but I just want

Pros: Groovy clothes.

I'm extremely surprised to see the scores this record store was getting and I felt obligated to write a review. I will limit the scope of my review to one thing: selection of music I was looking to purchase (indie rock). I have no

Pros: Parking, ambience

Cons: None of that matters if a record shop doesn't have what you want

.

This place is great. It's basically a skate and surf shop, plus a cd store combined. I've had success finding clothes I like there... selection not too critically different from the mall skateshop chain, but I'd say they have a bit wider

Pros: Selection of metal, jazz, concert dvd's, used section, good tshirts, open late, spacious

Cons: Occasional markup

.

Applies to Soundwaves on Montrose - The staff are usually helpful & there's always someone who knows something about what you're looking for. It's cool without being 'too cool'.

Honorable mention goes to Cactus.

Pros: Indie/Punk 10/10, Listening posts 9/10, Diverse stock range

One of my FAVORITES. They got good selection, local music and the "no smirk" staff to compliment. I remember countless times walking out of soundexchange (or other similar stores) w/ one of those Charlie Brown scribble clouds over my head.

Soundwaves always has the full breadth of artists. Plus, the inventory is tailored to the neighborhood.
The prices are better than Catcus or Wherehouse.
If your musical taste is electic, adventure down to Montrose, and enjoy the best
