The next Night Owl Record Show is going to be great!
We are excited about all the great sellers who are lining up for the show.
We are planning lots of guerrilla marketing to get the word out to the streets.
By popular demand Three the Hard Way will return to DJ the show.

Very special thanks to Hall of Records for sponsoring the DJs and hosting our community gatherings.
Extra thanks goes out to 360 Vinyl, Portland’s hip hop and break beat store, for all their support and help with promotion.
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.
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.
Soon Hall Of Records will join 99 Records as Portland’s newest record store.
Hall Of Records owners Justin and Katie have been putting in long hours at their store front on SE Belmont getting ready for their grand opening. HoR will be more than just a record store, there will be beer, sandwiches and djs playing into the night to make your record shopping experience enjoyable. Kind of like the Night Owl Record Show.
If you can’t wait for them to open in May, come by the Night Owl Record Show on April 17th. Justin will bring out a selection of carefully chosen soul, jazz and funk lps for you dig.
