Our staff reads a lot. We know the books on our shelves and the records in our crates. We’ll make your shopping easier by suggesting meaningful gifts you'll be excited to give.

We're pretty spoiled; we get to carry work by talented authors and musicians, and we work closely with publishers and record labels to select work we want to see more if in the world. 

And now we're offering the gift of a night out! With our new in-store box office, you can buy tickets for shows at all 16” On Center locations: The Empty BottleEmpty Bottle PresentsThalia HallThe Promontory, and SPACE. And with any ticket purchase, you'll also receive 20% off a purchase at our store.

When you support independent enterprises, you support local culture and craft in a society that increasingly gravitates toward the outsized, outrageous, and mass-produced. Buy independently and buy quality. Visit us at Curbside Books & Records.
