I knew Craig personally back in the day when Accidental was still around. It was named Accidental from an insurance payout Craig received after an accident, used to open the store.

You missed perhaps the biggest quirk about Accidental: it was always open. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Craig claims that he lost the keys to the door, or that there were not even locks. There was so much business after the bars closed. Lots of drunk people doing drunk purchase.

Staffed by various LES denizens, many of the female staffers way too cute for my awkward self to ask out.


I had a friend named Joey, I thought he had a record store on A--I mean I thought it was his, but maybe he was just working there. Oddly enough, I think he had also received a settlement from an accident. I only went in once, but I'm pretty sure this was the place.

What ever happened to Craig Lopez and Chloe from Accidental Records ? They worked at Downtown music gallery for years before Craigs Accident
