Need to know if there is any metal record store in the following cities: San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles (don't know if Sadistic Intent's Dark Realm Records is still open...).

Also if there is some gigs happening in these locations between december 18th and 31st, please, let me know.

thanks.

For the Sf bay area it is a little far away to see many listings for show, but you can check this site for info on the majority of punk and metal shows in the area: http://jon.luini.com/thelist/date.html

For record stores there is Amoeba in SF (best metal selection around) as well as Amoeba in Berkeley, Aquarius Records in SF with some more eclectic finds but a bit pricier and smaller selection, 1-2-3-4-GO in Oakland which is more punk and rock oriented, but gets some metal, and mostly just sells vinyl, Thrillhouse in SF, also more punk, but with some metal.

As for Dark Realm was planning a move and shut down their old location, but they still haven't reopened and i don't know where they were moving to. There is also an Amoeba Records in LA, but it is not nearly as good for metal as SF, but you still might find some treasure hidden there.

If you get to Oakland, 1234 Go records is nice.

In Las Vegas we do not have any stores that are metal only. There is an independent music company, Zia Record Exchange and they have 2 stores in Vegas with an "ok" selection of metal. Is there anything in particular you are looking for? A friend operates a distro from his home and has some good underground titles and even better prices here in the city but currently does not do online sales; He brings the distro out to the shows on occasion.

As far as shows, it is too soon to know what may be happening in Vegas in December but we do get some good metal shows that pass through. You can message me later on if you wish for more info on December shows.
