borderline MUSIC is a new and used CD store that specializes mainly in dance and imports but we also carry vinyl, collectibles,new and used DVDs. Borderline opened in August 2000 and has continued to support and celebrate Chicago’s gay community.

I opened borderline MUSIC because of my intense passion and knowledge of music. I have worked in many nationwide chains and even worked at a record label out in LA. After my returned to Chicago I was sadden by the lack of music that was available to the fans. This is why borderline MUSIC had to open. We carry everything from domestic titles – to the ‘hard to find’ that are not released in the states. Our product comes from the USA, Australia, U.K., Japan, France and anywhere else that your favorite artist may be released—we’ll get it. Since our opening in 2000 the store exploded on the scene!—Not only have we had we had local DJ spinning Live, but we’ve also had many in store-appearances by amazing artist such as, Abigail, Amber, Donna De Lory, Kristine W. and Pepper Mashay.

borderline MUSIC is proud to have been sponsors for The HEARTS foundation, Aids Walk, T-Pan (Test Positive Aware Network-Aides outreach program), Season of Concern and many local charities. And in the year 2004 we are proud and excited to launch our web store globally, making the product available to the fans and collectors.

If you ever are in Chicago, stop by and check out our storefront—The store is a visual and hip experience. We have collectible memorabilia that covers the walls, signed autographs from the best: Cher, Erasure, Kylie Minogue, Amber, Cyndi Lauper, Kristine W., Depeche Mode, Go-Go’s, Rupaul, Lisa Stansfield, Donna Summer, Eartha Kitt and many more. A multi media screen playing your favorite videos and what would a dance record store be without a disco ball! We look forward to serving ALL your music needs.
