Night Owl Record Show Community Gathering

Hall of Records
3342 SE Belmont St., Portland, OR
The Night Owl Record Show Community will be gathering at the Hall of Records Friday night.
There will be records for sale, food and drink (Hall of Records now has a full bar) and open decks for anyone who would like to spin a few records.
Music, food, drink, friends and records, what more could one ask for on a Friday night?
A portion of bar proceeds will go to promoting the next Night Owl Record Show
Sellers have been regaling me with stories of the great record scores they are bringing to the Night Owl Record Show.
William Harker, who usually sets up by the back wall has posted photos of the contents of just one box of new finds he is bringing.
Here is his facebook photo page with the records. Wish I knew how to add a photo from facebook to the blog.

Tony will be making the long drive from Spokane to the Night Owl Record Show once again. His truck will be loaded down with some of the best records that ever made it out west. His store in Spokane, Unified Groove Merchants, has developed a world wide reputation. He seems to have an endless supply of rare soul, funk, psych, rock and hip hop.
If it looks weird Erik will buy it. If he doesn’t like it he will sell it. That means Erik’s table will be full of weird, strange and unusual records in every category and some that there is on category for.
Peter Kihara is coming down from Seattle with bundles of mind boggling boxes of beats and treats.
Will Linquist is coming up from Eugene to sell at the Night Owl Record Show for the first time.
Roger DeCarlo is bring his latest rock finds for our digging pleasure.
Brandon Lieberman is a familiar face at the Night Owl Record Show. A portion of Night Owl Record Show proceeds go to KBOO Community Radio. One of the best shows on KBOO is Brandon’s Drinking From Puddles.
There is no shortage of record store clerks selling at the Night Owl Record Show. Bill Stephenson will be back again with his latest finds.
Robert Renk has been pricing away, putting the better things into plastic sleeves, and am planning on doing a $3 bin + a $5 bin.
Robert was co-owner of The Ooze record store here in Portland, so he has some of that 80s independent / alternative stuff like Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, Birthday Party, and Factory records kind of stuff. He moved to NYC to be a DJ in 1986 and has done that on and off for the last 24 years. He has tons of REALLY GOOD house and disco from the 70s to some relatively current stuff. Also a bit of hip hop, and lots of good R & B from the 80s/90s.
Now he is leaving the DJ thing behind me, so he is looking forward to a major purge so he can buy a ticket to Barcelona!
Ruby Short’s table is where I always find records by Portland bands. She has been setting up at Night Owl Record Shows for years. She has deep ties in the Portland music and arts community. You may have heard Ruby’s daughter, famed singer songwriter Shelly Short. Her son is a well known local photographer, Faulkner.
Jackie and Marty are returning to the Night Owl Record Show with more great records from their eclectic collections. They can often be found selling records, and other flotsam and jetsam or popular culture, at the Twilight Rummage sale. Marty can sometimes be found around town DJing. Jackie is a member of the legendary Portland band Smegma.
Christian Peetz & Mat Griesse put on the Seattle version of the Night Owl Record Show. Big Dig Seattle is took place last month at an art gallery on Capitol Hill. With food and drink and art and plenty of record sellers and djs it was the best Big Dig yet. Looking forward to going back in the fall.
Christian and Mat are known for their deep funk 45s and crates full of soul, jazz and other goodness.
