Yeah Vacation is a bit pricey but the dudes that work there are great, the selection is strong and they have free in store shows occasionally (Black Cobra, Ancestors etc) so I don't mind throwing them a buck now and again. They have a good thing going with Southern Lord so those releases are very reasonable.
I definitely have to hit up all those stores the next time I'm in the bay.
