Crooked Beat Records, which closed its record store at 2116 18th St. NW in May, will sell vinyl at Songbyrd Music House and Record Cafe (2477 18th St. NW) this Saturday, Nov. 26, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We will have around 800 to 1000 records for sale at our pop up store this Saturday,” Crooked Beat said in a Facebook post. “Please come out!”
The pop-up store will be held in conjunction with Small Business Saturday, an annual event that encourages people across the U.S. to shop at neighborhood businesses instead of national chains.
