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.
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.

One of the most popular Night Owl Record Show sellers is Tony Brown from Spokane WA. Tony’s Spokane store, Unified Groove Merchants, is legendary around the world for it’s large stock of the rarest of rare groove, soul, jazz, rock and lots more. Look for Tony’s table on the far wall near the DJs.

Doug O’Leary’s red suspenders have been a familiar sight at NW record shows for the last 3 decades. For more than 20 years he owned Doug’s Records in down town Yakima. Today he is still buying and selling full time, traveling to record shows throughout the NW.
As Doug told the Oregonian back in 2004, “I have let people down, and other people have let me down, but that’s the thing about music it never lets you down.”
Craig Green will be joining us from Olympia once again. A Night Owl Record Show favorite, Craig always has crates filled with unusual, soul, funk, rock, prog, Latin and more. Craig never misses a chance to pick up an unknown private press album or obscure local 45.
