Twist & Shout named among top record stores by Rolling Stone -- after being snubbed last year

Man, what a difference seven months makes. After being completely glossed over last fall along with all of the other record stores on the Front Range, Twist & Shout got a nod this morning from Rolling Stone as one of the Best Record Stores in the U.S.A. Not sure what changed in that time, but it's nice to see the Best Store on Colfax get its due -- and just in time for Record Store Day tomorrow. "It's not just the award for retail that matters to us," says Epstein, "but the recognition of cultural perseverance, as well." Congrats!
