Crooked Beat Records was located on 18th Street in Adams Morgan for over a decade but now calls Alexandria home. The new store, just a 15-minute drive outside of DC, is well worth the commute. Much bigger than the previous one, the space features bright orange walls decked out with signed music posters. The store stocks new and used vinyl records (think punk, indie, classic reggae, rock and soul) and (rightfully) takes pride in its collection of rare, collectible LPs from independent record labels and artists.
