    Hey everyone,
    I'm sort of new to the Albany area in Upstate New York, and since Mars went out of business last year, I have no idea where to go! Are there any good music stores in the area? I'm willing to travel a little bit, but I just want somewhere to go if I need something, because right now I'm high and dry here!

    How far you want to travel? I could tell you what's in Rochester, but I'm not familiar with Syracuse (or Buffalo for that matter).

    PS why are you a sock?

    BTW you're not far from Tobias (if they take visitors, I don't know).

    Drome Sound
    3486 State Street

    Hope that helps!

    No, it was the name of my band about a hundred years ago, which became my first internet anonymous name.
