East Atlanta or "The Village" is a neighbourhood located south of Memorial Drive along Flat Shoals Road in Atlanta, Georgia. Formerly a victim of urban blight, in recent years it has transformed itself from its former existence into a trendy urban neighbourhood that is known along with Poncey-Highland as the mecca of hipsterdom for the entire Southeast. Highlights include Feed Your Head, a record store that is known for being open into the wee hours; the Sopo Bike Co-Op, where hundreds of friendly hipsters can help you fix your bike; and The Earl, a bar and concert venue with a massive mural for Pabst Blue Ribbon painted on the brick wall outside.
If I had known Radiohead was playing in town last night, I would have gone on a robbery spree in East Atlanta between 7-11pm. Could've taken a truck load of skinny jeans and vinyl records.
