• Flea Record Fair #1 May 19


    Every fall at the Superstar DJ Record Fair, shoppers and vendors alike beg us to put it on twice a year. No no, we say, it’s so much work! (It is.) But after the big success of last year’s event we just couldn’t deny it any longer.

    So, we tapped our old pal Amanda Colbenson, who’s managed the almighty Other Music for years (and DJs at the Ace Hotel, and runs the Chouette music-promotion shop), to help us do two fairs this year. We renamed it the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair, Amanda talked all her awesome label pals and DJs into participating, she convinced cool cat Jess Rotter to design a groovy postcard (above), and lo and behold—May 19th inside Smorgasburg we’re in business.

    As in past years, we’ve skimmed the cream of the crop of NYC indie record labels, DJs, and vintage dealers to create a manageable melange of 25 or so vendors, with a nice balance of rare and one-off items, dusty gems, old standbys, and plenty of deals. We’ll have music too, and maybe a special performance, which we’ll announce later. You’ll meet the faces behind your favorite labels, and maybe see an artist or four buying or selling. To top it off, you’ll be surrounded by the 75 or so fab food vendors of Smorgasburg—just don’t go smearing your greasy Pizza Moto hands on that King Tubby 45!
