We’re 25 Years Old!


Hey everyone! Magic has happened! We’re turning twenty five years old this October, and we’re having a party to celebrate!

Some your favourite former Rotate staff will be on hand spinning records, there will be cake, there will be pizza, there will be giveaways galore, there will be some live music in our garage featuring some of our oldest friends, and of course, there will be some GREAT deals on the whole reason we’re here: RECORDS!!

It’s pretty amazing that we’ve been able to serve Toronto’s music needs for so long, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Much love, and man, time sure does fly!

Seeya on the 29th!

Well, hello there!

We’re one of Toronto’s leading and best known independent record stores. We stock new releases from independent bands and artists from Canada, the U.S., England, and around the world. We’re committed (actually, obsessed would be more accurate) with stocking as much of this on vinyl as is possible.

Genre-wise, we’re down with almost everything: the hip, the hop, the punk, the jazz, the hardcore, the reggae, the electronic, the indie, the un-indie. No classical or nu-country, however.

We stock used vinyl as well, although the turnover is extremely high, and we find it difficult to keep much stock. If you’re looking to rid yourself of your dusty old record collection in exchange for some $$s, we’d be more than happy to take a look. We are rather picky though, so please don’t bring in your Poco lps.

We’re also an official ticket outlet for most of the major concert promoters in town.

Next time you’re out music shopping, and you’re looking for stuff that you just can’t find at the mall, definitely stop by. We swear that we won’t judge your purchases. Honest! (Kidding!) (No, really!)
