Squid Invades Hampden

So, as previously announced, Atomic Books will be moving. They will move into the current Atomic Pop space at 3620 Falls Road--creating a mega Atomic One-Stop Super Shop!

Of course, the next question is what will happen to the lovely old Agusta Bank building that has been Atomic Books' home? Well, Squidfireis moving in!

If you don't know Squidfire, you should. They're a local collection of artists who make the awesomest T-shirts (pictured here--what's not to love?) Their line also features related stuff like printed hoodies and bags, as well as quite possibly the best children's book ever: I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean.

Squidfire co-owner Jean-Baptiste Regnard told Hawker that he's signed a lease & renovations to the building will begin August 1st. Squidfire hopes to have its brick and mortar store open by Hampdenfest! Plus, the focus will be on offering men's and baby/children's clothing. (Yeah for Baby Hawker!)

Squidfire often sets up shop at neighborhood festivals, so if you see them around this summer, welcome them to Hampden and buy a freaking T-shirt already!
