While Richmond has several great record stores, Vinyl Conflict’s 324 S Pine St. storefront is the one that scares baby boomers. You won’t find Eric Clapton, but you will find plenty of Dischord classics and used leather jackets. It’s the record store you’ll want to show your out-of-town visitors, even if punk and metal aren’t your taste. “Why do all those people standing in front of it have tattoos?” a bewildered father asked. You’ll never get it, Dad.
