We hope you all are doing what you can to stay healthy and safe, and helping those in need in your community however you can during this scary and financially tough time! Though our brick and mortar store will remain closed until the ‘shelter in place’ mandate on ‘non-essential’ #SF businesses is lifted (yikes!), we are working very diligently so you will be able to browse our inventory online ASAP.

Please feel free to contact us anytime if you see something from our latest Instagram post you’d like to order, or just to say hello!

Gift certificates and apparel are available here on our website 24/7. Maroon tees out of stock, gray tees out of stock, hoodies are in stock! 


Stay home, stay tuned for updates, and please do your best to stay healthy!

Much love from everyone here at Noise!

33 . 45 . 78 RECORDS

We have records here spanning all genres of music. Jazz, funk, punk, crunk, classical, hip hop, house, gamelan, surf, indie, classic rock, bossa nova, world music, ambient, country, folk, electronic, salsa, broadway & movie soundtracks, comedy albums, new wave, blues, zydeco & more! 


Though many of our albums are used, we also feature lots of sealed new releases & some rare original vintage factory sealed pressings!


'Noise' loves indie musicians & record labels. It's inspiring to see so many independent/underground record labels, producers, bands & musicians making music for the masses. Dan, the owner, is a full time musician whose roots in the San Francisco & Oakland music scene run deep. 

We're always glad to discover artists and share their talent with our customers. If you have recordings on vinyl, CD or cassette that you'd like to sell here, feel free to contact us. We love hearing from you!
