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.
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!
DJ, vegan and record store clerk, Thom Jones has his fingers on the pulse of Portland. Thom is the premier seller of avant and modern rock. Thom will be one of the first sellers to set up his table. If we are lucky he will stay at the show past seven o’clock.
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.
