Ok, first Nayar and O’Malley’s give themselves a bit of a facelift. Then Renaissance Guitars sets up shop in the hood. The Bobwhite gets sold and subsequently lined up to start showing movies. Then Red Castle Plaza—formerly known as Foster Plaza—gets the wheels moving on a major renovation to restore its original facade (and get rid of the god forsaken monstrosity of an awning in the process).
All this within the last six months. (The list gets quite long if we go back further.)
Add record shop to the list. Maybe. Probably.
I heard it from someone who heard it from someone. You know how that goes. And my heart’s been broken before. But…
There’s this, straight from the source:
“I’ve promised not to disclose the exact address just yet, but Green Noise Records has a new location. It’s in Foster-Powell, about a 5 minute (tops) drive from our current spot.”
Ok, who really has record players? I don’t. I may never go in there. (That’s for dramatics, I totally will.) But when I imagine John Cusack and Jack Black hanging out listening to tunes, I can’t help but to get giddy over a record store moving into the neighborhood. Oh, and just ’cause I don’t have a record player doesn’t mean you don’t. Or someone you know. The fact is, they probably do. And there are enough people in Portland who definitely do.
So Green Noise Records moving to the neighborhood is a good thing. Definitely a good thing. If it happens, that is.
* We’re talking records, not record players. Buy more music, guys.
