Tempe, AZ – If you drive past Creamery Park on Eighth Street, starting in October you’ll see some colorful new street signs. The City of Tempe is honoring the Gin Blossoms band by designating a portion of Eighth Street as “Allison Road Avenue.”

The band made the announcement of the new street designation at their June 9 concert. Watch the video HERE.

“Tempe is my home and heart forever. My recording studio was on 8th St. inside Four Peaks Brewery for 20 years. There are no words for the intense pride I feel for this honor,” said lead singer Robin Wilson.

“I was born and raised in Tempe, and both my mother and father worked for the city, so this is a real honor for us,” said guitarist Jesse Valenzuela. “Tempe is a great place to call home.”
