Discerning vinyl lovers with disposable income left after taxes and Record Store Day will be pleased to learn that the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair is back this Saturday (5/4) at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg. There are 50 vendors, with tables from labels like Domino, DFA, Captured Tracks, Merge and Warp, and also record stores/vendors like Other Music, Turntable Lab, Kim's Video & Music, and Record Grouch.

There are also a few specialty items available, like Captured Tracks' Cleaners from Venus Vol. 2 Box Set (which isn't official out till 5/14), Cass McCombs/White Magic 7" on clear vinyl, and that PAWS cassette that was only available at their merch table on their North American tour last month. DJs picked by the Red Bull Music Academy folks will be spinning tunes, including sets from Throne of Blood's James Friedman, Dean Bein (True Panther Records), DJ/rupture and more. Hours for the record fair are 11 AM - 6 PM and it's free entry. Smorgasburg gets insanely packed these days, so go early.

Full list of vendors, specialty items and DJ schedule are below.
