In case you missed it, the re-established Hoodlums Music store in Tempe turned one year old this weekend, proving you can't keep a good store down (the store even managed to win a Best Of award before it re-opened for business). Owners Steve Wiley and Kristian Luce celebrated their success by throwing the store a birthday party on Saturday night.
The soiree included snacks and various libations consumed to the lo-fi musical selection of DJ Babynose. The store walls were lined with pieces from artist Mike Maas, creator of the original Hoodlums logo. But party or not, most of the folks in attendance looked hellbent on buying some new tunes.
See more photos from the Hoodlums party in our Club Candids slide show.
