Solid State

Location: Solid State Vinyl Records – 4022 46th St

Not just Black Friday, it was also Record Store Day. Hannah and Phil Borreson have run Solid State records and gifts for almost a full year at 46th & Minnehaha. Besides stacks of vinyl, they have cassettes, CDs, vintage shirts, stereo equipment, and hip stocking stuffers — not to mention a vast knowledge of obscure and rare music. Phil’s holding a blue vinyl pressing of local band Falcon Arrow on top of a rare Michael Jackson LP with a rat on the cover.

The Riverview Corridor is a transportation route that runs from Union Depot in St. Paul to the MSP airport and the Mall of America. One proposed option involves streetcars on 46th Ave. To judge from the banners along 46th Ave, this is not universally popular. More information can be found at http://www. riverviewcorridor.com.

New businesses in Longfellow

Pink Closet- a clothing consignment shop-used to occupy this space. Now Solid State, a record store that buys and sells used music and Foxtone Music which sells music mixing and audio creation equipment, have revamped the space to call it their own.

I love that the building remains a space where the old becomes new again.
