City Paper is not for tourists
I stopped by Orpheus Records in Arlington yesterday and owner Rick Carlisle says he’s staying open way past his first drop-dead date. Turns out his landlord’s deal to sell property on the block went totally sour. The other tenants have already left and relocated. But since Carlisle had decided to just quit the business, he stuck around. Now he’s in limbo. Go browse! The place has that lovely old record smell, plus plenty of old gems—most at half-price—and new releases.
