Today was the last day of the Music Millenium store in NW Portland, as noted earlier. They had live music on their stage just about all day long, and this evening the store was packed. The forty percent discount in the last few weeks has drawn the inventory down quite a bit, but tonight I still found a couple things. So for the record my last purchases there were John Coltrane’s Live at Birdland (1963 recordings, both live and studio in fact) and Tom Verlaine’s Songs and Other Things (2006).
Below is store owner Terry introducing the second to last band, Stars of Track and Field.
This certainly marks the end of an era in the neighborhood, and so we’ll see where things go from here!
