A lot of people are pretty damn excited about the sort-of-rebirth of Eastside Records and with good reason. The opening of The Ghost Of Eastside Records promises to bring back that same old musty antiquated smell of time-traveling vinyl, as well as the occasional impromptu spastic punk rock show.
On Friday, December 23, you can treat yourself to one of these limited-time affairs before the shop closes its doors again. Phoenix-based Otro Mundo along with Tempe's Acid Dawgz will be kicking off their west coast tour at the newly opened shop with the help of Mangled Men.
