WFMU Record Fair announces 2018 dates, performers & more
The 2018 edition of the WFMU Record Fair will be back at the Brooklyn Expo Center on April 27-29 with table after table of vintage vinyl and more. As usual, WFMU will be broadcasting live with special performances throughout the weekend, and this year that includes Wreckless Eric, Philly band Hurry, and DJ Jonathan Toubin on Saturday, April 28, and more. There will also be free film screenings in the Movie Lounge, including Harry Nilsson's classic children's fable, The Point, and Dan Ackroyd's inexplicable classic-in-his-mind Nothing But Trouble.
Admission is $7 per day, or you can buy a $25 three-day pass that gets you early admission on Friday. Proceeds go to help keep WFMU on the air. More details, screenings and live performances listings below.
