Last night Wall of Sound record store and Spine and Crown Books suffered a break-in via a kicked-in door and the former business lost its computer and some coins in its till and the latter the iPhone with which it processes purchases. I don't want to tell you what to do, but it might be a nice idea to frequent these excellent indie establishments—both of which need to find new locations by June 2013—and buy something from them this week to help them procure the funds to replace their lost goods.

Happy holidays?
