Okay, the good people of Atlanta and the Little 5 Points neighborhood have spoken and they really want you (Donald) to visit Criminal Records. They have emailed me, submitted posts, tweeted and even started a facebook page. I’ve never been to the ATL but I’ve heard of L5P and that its a good area to check out while visiting. It seems like they got some good food in the neighborhood and this dope record shop is only a block away from the venue.
Here is some of the comments i’ve received….
Jaclyn - “I’m not sure if he is awareof how amazing and unique Criminal Records is, but we all believe he would have such a great time checking out comic books, vinyls, CD’s, graphic novels, magazines, cooky comic-related toys and an amazing candy selection (some from Japan).
It’s the day after he performs at Variety Playhouse in Little Five Points, which is where Criminal Records is located, and everyone within the L5P community really thrives off of local support from one another.
CR is well known by many in Atlanta as well as those who live “outside the perimeter”. CR hosts many many many bands to perform in-store, which almost always draws a crowd so large you’re often forced to dodge in and out of people just to move from side to side.
We love Donald, we want him to come to Criminal Records on May 7th for Free Comic Book Day the day after he performs at Variety Playhouse in Little 5 Points located in Atlanta, Georgia.”
yarg - “Donald should most definitely hit up Criminal Records, which is right across the street from the Variety Playhouse (his venue in ATL). The good folks at Criminal will take good care of a gentleman, and guide him to fine musics and delicious eats. Speaking of, he should hit up The King of Pops at the corner of North/Highland while he’s in the ‘hood, ‘cuz them pops is good.
My favorite meal near the venue would be The Vortex (kickass burgers) or El Myr (great burritos, and the best jukebox around).”
Charlie- “Donald will be playing the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta — one block up is the best record store I’ve ever seen, Criminal Records (http://www.criminalatl.com/).
Also, Cakes & Ale in Decatur is a wicked good restaurant (http://cakesandalerestaurant.com/)”
