It is an incredible experience to witness an idea come to fruition; a vision contemplated by two friends. For many of us in Portland we got to see this happen with our friends Patrick Dennehy and Matt Roveto in their creation of Blythe and Bennett Records, a small but influential record shop in the heart of the Belmont neighborhood. The transition from an empty store front to a completely functioning shop with bins stacked deep with records and posters blanketing the wall solidified their vision into a reality.
Almost a year later and Blythe and Bennett has found themselves at another milestone. The shops first big in store show with local band The Slutty Hearts recently happened, with a good size crowd coming out for the show.
