You can spend any lazy Sunday downloading the latest leaked album in your pajamas. Today, why not mingle instead with the dust from decades past and get some possibly much-needed social interaction at the Brooklyn Record Riot. Held at sometime-music venue the Warsaw, this record show boasts more than 35 dealers from as far away as Montreal with a selection of LPs and 45s to appeal to both the ardent and novice collector alike. While perusing the musty crates, you can nurse a hangover with a bit of the old “hair of the dog” method (i.e., cold Polish beer) along with some hearty Polish fare like kielbasa and pierogi to settle that stomach. Even if you’re just there for the recession-priced $1 room in back, you’ll be doing your part to make sure that records don’t go the way of the 8-track, woolly mammoth, or Etherea.
