My Week in Midtown – Oct. 27

By Nick Leonti,

My midtown wanderings took me to the following places this week.

Phono Select

For those of us who still enjoy the simple pleasure of dropping a needle onto vinyl, Phono Select is an exciting addition to midtown. While its collection of vinyl doesn’t compete with the expansive stacks of Records or The Beat, these LPs are selected with care specifically for the young, hip, musically knowledgable midtown crowd.

Of course, it flies directly in the face of all logic to open a record shop at this point in time, so I’m already scared that this place will close. I’m rooting for you , Phono Select!

The MARRS building has proven to be a great addition to midtown. I think my favorite place there is Azul Mexican restaurant as evidenced by the fact that I eat lunch there like 4 times a week. The food is tasty, the prices are good and they have like 80 different kinds of tequila. Muy Bueno!

Old Ironsides
If something awful happens and our whole town is destroyed except for Old Ironsides, I assure you that, those of us who are left, will still be doing ok for ourselves. Old I is a Sacramento institution where four generations of young folks have enjoyed rock and roll, cheap PBR and great lunches. Last Friday, the Nervous Wreckords played…and to show that I’m helping put the old in Old Ironsides, I’ve also seen the guy from Nervous Wreckords play at Old I with his previous, weird British-accented band Louis XIV and before that in the country flavored outfit Convoy.

Welp, that’s some stuff I saw in midtown this week. Check’m out.
