Meet Me in the Dollar Bin

Sonic Boom in Ballard is having a sidewalk sale at the moment, presumably to take advantage of the increased foot traffic from SeafoodFest this weekend.

Dollar bins are curious places in the land of discounted records; sure, there's bound to be an excess of later-era R.E.M. and Jesus Jones, but it can also be an opportunity to unearth some gems that were somehow deemed unworthy of, say, a $5 sticker.

Two cases in point, both snagged yesterday at said sale:

Over and Out, by Tar, Touch & Go Records

Self Totaled, by Cosmic Psychos, Amphetamine Reptile Records

The sale is going on all weekend, so stop on by and maybe you'll get lucky too.
