These times are subject to change. As you can see, some of these artists will only be here at our store for a few hours on FCBD, so plan accordingly. Zano will be facilitating an interview/panel discussion with Annie Erskine, Joseph R. Wheeler III, Christian Sager, and Thom Trainor sometime between the hours of 2pm and 4pm.

Please note that the live performance by Adam WarRock and Tribe One starts at 6:00pm. There's a separate FB Event page for that part of the day and you can RSVP for that over here if you wish:

Special thanks to our friends at the Plaza Theatre for screening Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Saturday at 3:00pm:

If y'all need a breather midday and you just want a place to sit and chill while watching a totally rad movie from our childhood, then head over to the Plaza on Ponce De Leon Ave. But don't forget to come back and see Adam WarRock & Tribe One kick it live on our stage.

See you soon!!!
