And Where is the Harmony? Sweet Harmony

Homer's MusicOdd, but cool.

At a time when people are crying over the loss of indie record stores, it is very unusual to see a new one opening in a mid-size market like Des Moines. Lincoln/Omaha mainstay Homer's is coming to the Des Moines-area! Well, Urbandale actually (really, Urbandale?!), but it's great news indeed. I am unashamedly a fan of iTunes and Amazon.com (what's so funny about cheap, fast, and big selection?), but I do miss the days of spending hours browsing through bins looking for that one cool import single. Zzz Records in Des Moines has filled that void to some extent, but I've been to Homer's in Nebraska, and if this new one is anything like those (in-store performances anyone?), well, I'll just be giddy about it. Yes, giddy.

And for you locals, they are doing it right by offering a new coupon everyday on their site. Cool!
