Good news for all of you who missed Coachella, have an iPhone, and love artisanal carbs – tomorrow (Saturday, May 4) the Red Bull Music Academy presents the Spring 2013 edition of the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair at East River State Park in Williamsburg. Get ready for music in all its forms—vinyl, CD’s, DJ’s, drunk people singing to themselves—plus the the tasty benefits of Smorgasburg.
The event is designed to raise awareness of smaller New York-based artists and record companies, according to DFA Records’ label assistant Kerry Santullo. “I’m excited to spend some time with the people from What’s Your Rupture? Records [DFA’s office-neighbors], and check out the special edition music artists have for sale,” Santullo says.
Entry to the fair is free, and the DJ lineup includes Dean Bein (True Panther Sounds), East Village Radio co-founder Veronica Vasicka, and Stones Throw recording artist James Pants. Record labels are coming prepared to sell you t-shirts, CDs, DVDs, pins, and all sorts of lifestyle accoutrements, so be cool and buy something already.
See you tomorrow between 11-6, Beats on your ears, Blue Bottle coffee in hand. (Cheers to iced-coffee season.)
