Hello! It's almost the weekend, and the Used Just-In bin is loaded with fresh stock. We are making good use of the post-holiday lull to process some used LPs that have been patiently waiting to be barcoded and priced. We hope to see you stop by soon to browse in our nice warm store.
It's cold out there! ☃️ But we do have some cool used (and new) records at Crooked Beat for those who want to brave this weather. We're open today for our usual Monday hours. 🌧🌨🌧🌨 #theclash #sandinista #usedrecords #vinyl #records #vinylrecords #vinylonly #recordstore #washingtondc #alexandriava #bythings #acreativedc #mydccool #extraordinaryalx

Awesome variety! Also, the young lady helping me was rocking these awesome jeans with patches and wide boot cut; loved them! She helped myself and my boyfriend out by answering all of the questions we... had with very informative answers. There was even a stool for my daughter to interact with the search for a certain Fleetwood Mac album. Then a perfect mini sized couch is where she comfortably stayed for the remainder of our search. Awesome spot. See More

While selfishly I miss having this store in walking distance of home, the new location has a better layout while still giving me a great variety of choices. There wasn't any competition either when d...eciding where to go for RSD. See More

Loved the store definitely worth checking out if you love vinyl and customer service. Great stories and DC history like Rollins and Fugazi. Can't go wrong it's named after a Clash song. CHECK IT OUT
