Yesterday morning we got up at 4:30 AM to head down to Eugene for the Eugene Record Convention at the Eugene Hilton. We hitched a ride with our friend Kit who owns Cartola, a coffeehouse in NE. The show didn't start until 10 AM but the key was to get there early to find the good records. So we got there at 7 AM. One of our friends had found all the records he wanted before it even started and headed back to Portland before 10 AM.
We had a table next to some of the other Portland-based diggers and posted up for the rest of the day. It was the biggest show they had ever had. It is a true testament to the growing popularity of vinyl. We met a ton of great people and are looking forward to the next one!
