Celebrated Summer Records moves into Atomic Pop

Celebrated Summer Records, known for its vinyl selection of punk, hardcore and indie rock, is moving from its Towson digs to the back room in Atomic Books (3620 Falls Road).

For the past few years, Celebrated Summer has been in Legends Comics.

Now that Legends is moving, Celebrated Summer is headed for Hampden, according to Atomic Books co-owner Benn Ray ...


Atomic Books has carried a small selection of local records, and the back room has been largely idle, Ray said.

"It makes a lot of sense," Ray said. "I think it's an excellent marriage."


Ray spoke with the owners of Hampden's other vinyl shop, True Vine, who said they welcome Celebrated Summer into the fold. True Vine carries "a very different sort of music," Ray said.

Celebrated Summer's first day of operations in the new space is July 2. For more info, the number is 443-866-9988.
