Armageddon Shop Boston

Nominated for: BEST Records and CDs

Armageddon Shop Boston 12 Eliot St Cambridge MA (617) 492-1235

The idea to open Armageddon Shop was conceived in spring of 1999 by Ben and Anne. Providence had no truly independent shop left dedicated to underground music, especially one focusing on vinyl. While working and saving money, we were also scouring flea markets, yard sales, and other shops for records, tapes, CD's, and anything else we thought would be good to have in the shop we wanted to do. A space was located and leased in September 2000, and work began. The space was cleaned, painted, and improved. All the fixtures were built by us, except the magazine racks which we acquired from a closed bookstore. Inventory was moved in in December. Cleaned, organized, priced, and stocked. Ben and Laura(Load Records), Lars, Damien, and the two of us spent many nights and more than a few beers and pots of coffee getting things together (Thanks you maniacs!). A pre-opening party on January 12th 2001 was a great time, friends from NY, NJ, MA, and RI coming down to hang out, eat, drink, and fight to the death for rare LP's. The doors opened the next day, the 13th of January 2001. We haven't looked back since. In July of 2005 Chris Andries stepped in as a new partner in the shop as Anne left to travel and move on in life. The shop has continued to grow, and we're hoping to keep it growing and improving as much as possible.
