Word on the street is that mom-and-pop indie store Anthem Records is bidding adieu to SE Belmont (well, technically 828 SE 34th), and relocating to the bright lights of downtown Portland. They'll be moving in next door to Upper Playground, in an expanded space that used to be the art gallery/store Motel.
We tried to confirm this with Anthem, but their email address is down and their phone is always busy when we call. Maybe they blocked us? I can't blame them, I would do the same.
