Twenty years after Eric Levin opened the store in Little Five Points, Criminal Records announced it would be closing its doors to Atlanta this fall. And yet. This is not another story about a record store closing. This is a story about a community that will not let their Criminal Records go without a fight. Watch. You can help, too.
Special thanks to Eric Levin and the Criminal Records staff for letting us make this in their store on a very busy Saturday.
