Criminal Records on the move in L5P
Hot on the heels of Ella Guru's relocation from North Druid Hills to Inman Park, Criminal Records, one of Paste's best record stores in America, is calling it quits on Moreland Ave. and moving a whopping two-tenths of a mile away (according to Google Maps) to a larger space on Euclid Avenue. No more stumbling right out of Aurora Coffee or Junkman's Daughter into Casa Crim, it seems. Oh well. 

To celebrate its lengthy journey, Criminal will host its last in-store performance tonight at 7 p.m. with It's Casual. The event is free and all-ages.

In addition, the store's put almost its entire inventory on sale at 25% off through Sunday, with minor exclusions. Included in the sale are magazines, an item one rarely, if ever, finds discounted on newsstands. Not included are things like tickets, gift cards, special orders and consignment items.

Criminal's plan is to close early Sunday evening (around 4 or 5 p.m., according to the web site) and re-open in the new Euclid space Tuesday morning (read: the store is not open on Monday).

The old Criminal space, which the store originally said it would keep exclusively for toys and comics, is now up for sale/lease, for those aspiring entrepreneurs whose dreams have not yet been dashed by the current economy.

Like the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club, hopefully Criminal's new store will stay afloat for years to come.
