Bop Street Records Opened In Its New Spot On Market Street Today

Be gentle on them. They're getting used to about a third of the space (now at 2220 NW Market Street) and half the records they had over on Ballard Ave. After donating an initial 140,000 records to St. Vincent de Paul, owner Dave Voorhees told me today that they made a second donation of about 60,000 LPs, tapes, and 45s. (He swears there's plenty of good stuff in there. More on that later.)

It's kind of a soft opening for now. Voorhees says they'll stay open through the weekend, and then close down for a couple days before their official grand re-opening. We'll have more on what they have planned in a bit, but for now, just know that Voorhees says he's raided his home stash and will be bringing plenty of gems in for the first time, including a few of those mint conditioned Townes Van Zandt records y'all have been asking about.
