How to Get Here
Open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Special holiday hours on July 4th, Halloween, during the Belmont Shore Christmas Parade, Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, and New Years Day.
Fingerprints is located in the Belmont Shore district of Long Beach, which is 2 blocks from the beach on the South East side of town.
From the 405 Freeway, either North or South, exit 7th Street/22 West.
Go exactly 2 miles (exit only goes one direction) to PARK St. turn LEFT.
Go through the residential neighborhood and cross 2nd Street, turn right into alley immediately after 2nd St.
Fingerprints is one block over on the corner of 2nd St and Roycroft. Due to the one way streets and no left turns, going through the alley is the most direct route.
Street parking are the best parking choice, meters are only in effect until 6:00 pm Mon - Sat (except holidays). There is also limited parking available in our lot, which is further down the alley past the store.
In the Beginning...
Fingerprints opened in July 1992 in a space about half of that which we occupy now. Our original vision was to serve the primarily underserved community of music lovers in the greater Los Angeles area. Corporate radio? What a crock, we could barely listen to it, surely there were legions of others who were having a tough time connecting with great music. Hopefully we've done a halfway decent job of matching music and music lovers over the past 13 years. We've been lucky enough to have some of our favorite musicians stop in to play for us and our regulars, there's a bit of a list coming soon in our gallery section. Our intent with this site is put a bit of what the store is like in a different arena. Hopefully you'll learn about a new favorite band, find some useful info and some stupid stuff to waste some work time, and maybe even stumble across something to make you laugh. Ultimately, we hope you enjoy the time you spend with us.
