Happy birthday to us!

[Above: Warren Hudson, age three]

Whoa ho ho! We've been having such a great time celebrating our 5th birthday over the last 24 hours that we plum forgot to blog about it. Consider this a quick catch-up, then, for those of y'all not yet in the know. Starting yesterday (Friday), we began our weekend-long 20% off sale on everything in the store, including CDs, DVDs, LPs, books, box sets and, well, you know, everything. Stop by and get a piece of the cheapness!

Additionally, we've got a bunch of delicious, ice-cold, high-gravity beer. If you're reading this post, that stuff is in the cooler and ready to drink. There's a lot too, and as a customer of the store it's pretty much your born duty to consume it (21+ only, of course).

Finally, at 3pm today, The Bonaventure Quartet will play live in the store. Check out the group's MySpace page to get a six-song sample of what Creative Loafing calls Atlanta's Best Jazz Group of 2008. We're honored to have them.

That's pretty much sums it up. Stop by and celebrate with us! It's as much your party as it is ours. Thanks, as always, for your business. The last five years have been a blast. Here's to five more...

Young Eliot blogs for Paste

This is Young Eliot. Many of you probably already know him. He poses for silly photographs. He changes light bulbs. He gets haircuts. He exaggerates for effect. He argues with Warren (a lot). He goes to school. He does a lot of things, really. But we're blogging about him now to point out a list he did for Paste magazine's local site, Paste:Local Atlanta. It's called "Top 5 ways Atlanta bands are different from other bands" and you can read it right here.
