Offbeat Jxn

Alternative Culture Store + Art Gallery

109 North State Street
Jackson, Mississippi 39212

Billed as an "alternative culture" store, OffBeat - now located in Downtown Jackson - started in May 2014 as an idea and an attempt to build community through a store and art gallery.

"I learned how to read from comics and being a DJ… they just mesh so well together," said owner Phillip "DJ Young Venom" Rollins. "I felt like (comics) wouldn’t be strong enough as a store by itself, so, let me combine the two and add in some designer toys and a gallery wall for minority artists."

The store hosts shows, parties, movie screenings, album releases, free comic book days, video game tournaments, record store days and so much more.
