Support one of the last REAL record stores in the nation with lots of appearances, food, over 400 vinyl releases, book signings and even The Ohio Players at 5pm. Terry Currier truly keeps this alive on East Burnside for the love of music, so stop by and say screw you Amazon, I'm going to a REALrecord store. Take the kids, this is really a great annual Portland happening.
For years I've been looking for a photo of Bill's Gold Coin. Today my advance copy of Phil Stanford's latest book arrived in the mail and there it is on page 12! This was a hot spot and big mobster hangout in Stumptown. Looking forward to starting this book tonight.
