Crooked Beat Records –  Arlington Virginia
Open –  802 N. Fairfax St., Arlington Virginia  22314

The new home of Crooked Beat Records, now a destination visit, after it moved from its long time home in Adams Morgan.  While a smaller shop, its nicely stocked and run by a nice guy (Bill Daly – picture below) so worth the trip.  And you’d be in good company, as any store the features both Neutral Milk Hotel and Belle & Sebastian on its list of best all time sellers draws the right kind of crowd.

While their offerings cover all genres, they specialize in punk and indie/alternative.  And you can try before you buy.
