The Congress Street Vinyl District

In a front page story with the headline “Record Prophets,” the Portland Daily Sun reported on the curious phenomenon of vinyl record shops clustering around a section of Congress Street in the Arts District. It’s definitely something that the recent addition of Sounds Absurd made more apparent, as it left many wondering how and perhaps why another record shop could be opening in such a small city, and hopefully with the holiday shopping season in full swing all four listed in the article (plus of course the tried-and-true Bull Moose Music) find success and continue to make Portland special in the way that they do.
