Best Place to Buy Vinyl: Celebrated SUMMER

Best Place to Buy Vinyl

Celebrated Summer

3620 Falls Road, (443) 866-9988,

Sometimes in a cool indie flick or a hip with-it sitcom, the characters will wander into a record store that’s like some vision of what one would look like if the cold, hard realities of running a business and keeping it functional didn’t get in the way. Named after the best H?sker D? song ever and located in the back of Atomic Books (co-owned by erstwhile City Paper contributor Benn Ray) with LPs carefully packed into bins along nicely painted walls decorated with a bunch of curated records and new releases, Celebrated Summer is like one of those too-good-to-be-true art-directed record shops. And though its specialty is heavy music of all kinds, enough records roll through there to satisfy anybody’s taste. It’s the kind of store you go in for an adventure and leave with two or three adventures—maybe one suggested by store owner Tony Pence himself.
