The Explorist International

      The Explorist International Records on 24th Street in the Mission District ought to be a destination for music enthusiasts seeking a collection of records that includes both classics and hard-to-find gems of every genre and flavor from rural American and jazz to international pop and folk. Located near mass transit stops and tucked amongst some of the city's best Mexican eateries, the journey to The Explorist is as enjoyable as browsing the shop itself. The inventory is carefully curated, also including essential reading material on music and pertinent social and cultural movements as well as limited edition magazines. The shop is a great addition to the music scene in San Francisco, which has seen a great resurgence in the popularity of records. The Explorist buys used records too, meaning that on any given day the selection can change with rare albums popping up and disappearing again just as quickly.Show lessRead more
