Record Fair and Kids Disco

Brooklyn Flea’s 4th annual Superstar DJ Record Fair will take place this Sat., Oct. 8, inside the Flea’s Smorgasburg food market on the Williamsburg waterfront. It will feature about 20 vintage record dealers, plus 20 vendors as part of the Independent Label Market, which launched in London in May and is making its US debut at the record fair. ILM features top labels from the world’s best music cities, with the heads of those labels manning the booths, selling their own products—new, catalog, rarities—at this unique and intimate new format for record-buying.

This year’s record fair will also include a kids’ disco party, with ourselves – Mister Saturday Night – taking care of musical duties. Then label owners and special guest artists will take spins on the open turntables for the remainder of the event.

Among the folks and labels selling are… 4AD, Captured Tracks, DFA, Domino, Fool’s Gold, Jagjaguwar, Kanine, Mexican Summer, Minimal Wave, Secretly Canadian, Throne of Blood, True Panther, XL, Young Turks, EAT Records, Halcyon, Us (yep, you can buy records straight from Justin and me), Neurotic Drum Band (our friends Ulysses  and John Selway), Piotr Orlov, Sound Fix, Doug Mosurock and John Allen.

Come by records from us, and bring your kids to get down.

Introducing Mister Sunday

We’ve been keeping this one under our hats for a while, but the time has come to spill the beans. In just over a month, on Memorial Day Weekend, we’re introducing Mister Sunday, the outdoor, Sunday afternoon spinoff of Mister Saturday Night. Clever name, we know.

If you ever came to Sunday Best at BKLYN Yard, you’ll know the place: it’s the same canal-side, tree-spotted plot of land at 400 Carroll Street between Bond and Nevins in Brooklyn, now rechristened Gowanus Grove.

If you never made it down, let us count the ways you’re going to love it. First, kids and dogs – you can bring them. We love them, and we don’t get to see enough of them on Saturday nights. Second, superb food – we’re teaming up with Brooklyn Flea to install a small but ace team of food vendors. Right now, we’ve confirmed Mile End, who will be serving a bunch of stuff you can’t get at the storefront in Boerum Hill, and we’re soon to confirm at least one more. Third, our friends from Botanica, the best little bar in the five boroughs, are taking care of the booze.

And last, but certainly not least, is the music. The Mister Saturday Night residents, Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin, the gents that pull the strings to bring it all together, will be playing records each and every Sunday through the summer on the big, blue soundsystem. There’ll be guests alongside them occasionally as well. Moodymann, Todd Terje, Horse Meat Disco, Optimo and Space Dimension Controller will all take their turns, and on opening day, Four Tet will drop by.

And that’s all there is to say about that. We’ll see you outside.
