Feed Your Head Music Closes
Longtime EAV business is going online-only.
Visitors to the East Atlanta Village know on Friday's and Saturday nights, the little store at 493-b Flat Shoals Ave. SE, was the jam spot.
Feed Your Head Music provided the soundtrack to streetside happenings with a playlist that ranged from Motown to trip-hop for many a weekend.
But Feed Your Head, an EAV retail staple for more than three years, closed late last week.
A "for rent" sign now hangs on the door.
While the store's physical store is closed, the business remains in operation online.
"Everything is fine, I'm just pursuing better income," Feed Your Head Music owner Thom Osburn, wrote to fans on his store's Facebook page.
"The store was fun and was always profitable, it was just not worth the 60-hour weeks. Not when I can run an eBay store at home, and sell some paintings, and see my wife 7 days a week instead of 27 hours a week."
Osburn told East Atlanta Patch the business will continue on eBay, giving him time to devote to painting full time as a photo realist.
He said he will contiute to sell music and artwork through the Facebook page.
