Discogs presenting “Crate Diggers” NYC record festival w/ Method Man & Redman
Discogs, the online music database and marketplace that catalogs just about every record ever released, are throwing events in cities around the world called Crate Diggers, which they call “the world’s largest international series of music festivals dedicated to promoting vinyl, collectability and physical music.” There are 2019 events planned for Brighton, UK, NYC, Tokyo and São Paulo, Brazil. The NYC Crate Diggers event takes place July 27 at the New York Expo Center in the Bronx and, in addition to all the tables of record sellers, there will be live performances from Method Man & Redman, with more artists to be announced. Tickets are on sale now and if you’re a seller who wants to book a table, you can do that too.
UPDATE: Crate Diggers is now happening at PlayStation Theatre.
In related news, there’s a new Wu-Tang Clan docu-series coming to Showtime this spring.
If you need a vinyl fix sooner, The Brooklyn Flea Winter Record Fair is in February.
