Portland’s Got The Hip Tracks


West Coast Road Trip (continued)

Portland_Oregon_Jackpot Records

Wandering around downtown Portland I came across the most colorful music store I’ve ever seen: Jackpot Records. They are an independent music store with a wide variety of new and used CDs and Vinyl Records. Some locals say it’s the best in the city.  While it is somewhat small, it definitely packs a punch. They have listening kiosks where I found several things I’d never heard before. These guys have good taste. They specialize in collections of local, punk rock and jazz. They also have their own record label and produce records for local bands and they sell tickets to local shows. 

Downtown Portland is home to so many creative people, the shop windows and signage can keep you entertained and inspired for as long as you can keep walking! Check it out:
