Everyone’s favorite Melrose record store, Revolver Records, has packed up and headed south to Roosevelt Row. When you’re done reading this, head over to Roosevelt and 2nd Street to check out the roomy new confines. That’s right — more space for vinyl, CDs, movies and live performance. Perhaps you saw several men in skinny jeans working tirelessly over the past few weeks at the site. Maybe you even noticed their crafty spraypainted sheet announcing the July 1 opening.

Think they had a nice little First Friday scene going on up there before? There’s going to be tons more live music and exciting events in this new location. This week come check out the inaugural First Friday performance, featuring some serious Phoenician talent — Matthew Reveles, Michelle Blades, Boys and Frogs and Marlene O’Connor — from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

Could this become ASU Downtown Campus’ answer to the former Hoodlums Music in the Tempe campus’ MU?
