Streetside Records might not close forever, after all
Kansas City had its own Empire Records-style gathering this weekend to save a vinyl institution in Westport. Streetside Records, one of the last remaining record stores in midtown, hosted a series of in-store performances and store-closing clearance bonanzas on Friday and Saturday to keep the music alive.
Rumor has it that Streetside lovers may not have to file their nostalgia away just yet. The store will still be closing on January 23 but is slated to reopen sometime in February. In the meantime, the store plans on having in-store performances every weekend until it closes.
