The DC Record Fair returns on Sunday, February 12. Now in its 4th year this is one of the premier record shows on the East Coast. Put together by Som Records, The Vinyl District DC and DC Soul Recordings this show gathers between 35-40 record dealers (and just plain record sellers) from DC, Richmond, Baltimore, Charlottesville, Philly, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and points between. Pick a genre and someone there will have a selection to pick through. Dollar bin miracles to appropriately priced rarities you never know what you’ll come across.
The host of this edition of the fair is the DC Riot Act Comedy Theater at 801 E St. NW in Penn Quarter. Admission is $5 early-bird (11AM-12 noon) and then $2 after (til 4:30PM). There will be DJs the whole time (confirmed at press time are DJ Pari and Stereofaith) as well as food and drink (Bloody Marys!). What a great way to spend a February afternoon!
