LITA opened the KEXP shop earlier this week, selling LPs, 10-inches, and 7-inches, including selections from the imprints they distribute. I hit the shop on Tuesday night and spotted a lot of great things (tons of Italian soundtrack music and prog rock, plenty of African music, synth wave, country/folk, jazz, post-punk, rock, etc.), all for pretty reasonable prices, including two bargain bins. The shop's also peddling LITA T-shirts and slipmats and offering special deals throughout the festival.
