Request Music A Maui standby, Request Music sells fresh avocados, classic surf posters, and some head shop glassware along with at least 20,000 vintage vinyl albums, many of which are kept in the shop’s labyrinth-like basement (which occasionally doubles as a mosh pit during live shows). Head here for Hawaii’s best selection of punk albums, as well as some killer reggae, but don’t expect curated preciousness—Request lumps together the good, the bad, and the ugly, encouraging customers to dig for buried treasure. It’s worth timing your visit to the first Friday of the month, when the shop stays open late to host a variety of musical acts, from punk to country to underground hip-hop.
