I remember when Eric (Backside) first told me he was opening a second store in Echo Park. It was early last year, and you could hear both the excitement and nervousness in his voice. I can’t believe that was a year ago.
Backside Echo Park celebrated its first year in business last week with a concert at The Echoplex featuring the RSWD Collective (Senor Homme, CBG, Alexander Spit, and cARTer). Here’s how it looked.
Fans were in line way before the doors opened.

I ran into my dude and possibly your most slept on producer, Polyester.
Also my girl Tavi from Undocumented Management.
Hosts for the night: Joshton Peas and Anwar Carrots.
