« Mekons frontman Jon Langford releasing 'Here Be Monsters,' touring this spring (dates & new track stream) | Jessica Pratt playing free Other Music in-store after Brooklyn Night Bazaar (where Speedy Ortiz plays tonight) »
Posted in music on February 7, 2014
As previously mentioned, the bi-annual Brooklyn Flea Record Fair is hosting a miniature version this weekend from 10am-6pm at the indoor Smorgasburg Winter Market in Williamsburg. The number of vendors at this weekend's fair will be substantially smaller than the outdoor event, but there are still lots of crates to dig through. Vendors include DFA Records, Mexican Summer, the Captured Tracks shop, and Other Music, among others. Alongside the vinyl vendors will be various DJs who should keep your vinyl purchasing experience a lot more interesting. Other Music will have about a thousand 7"s to sell, some of which will be spun during Moldymann's DJ set on Saturday.
Label vendors such as DFA are known to sell lots of record fair-exclusive rarities and hard-to-find vinyl such as split singles, white labels, and out of print items. (Also mugs and other merch.) Many vendors at the fair, who are often up for conversation, will also sell exclusive merchandise such as turntable slipmats and t-shirts.
The time and date, as well as the list of vendors and DJ time slots are below. Further info can be found at the Brooklyn Flea website.
