Mike at Yesterdaze

Mike West has been providing quality music (and other grateful things) through-out the upstate of South Carolina since the 1980s – and in most recent years – has begun hosting free all-age shows for local and touring acts at his record store “Yesterdaze” in Seneca, SC.

On September 2nd the store will welcome GF veterans PINE TAR RAGE and FRIDAY NIGHT CAT FIGHTS – as well as CLEM McGILLICUTTY and the BURNOUTS along with the SWAMP RATS, both on tour from Florida.

The show will begin at 7:30pm and is free (as always) but donations are strongly encouraged and the store will of course be open for the last-minute music shoppers!  There are deals on literally thousands of LP’s – Rock, Blues, Punk, R&B, Country, etc. 45’s, CD’s, music memorabilia and other cool stuff.  Keep alert to upcoming appearances and special gatherings via the Yesterdaze social page or phone ( 8 6 4 )  8 7 3 – 9 3 3 2
