That’s right folks, the Brooklyn Record Riot is back at Greenpoint’s very own Warsaw this Sunday, February 28! Here’s the 411 per their Facebook page:

Gather round the musical bonfire boys and girls… the Brooklyn Record Riot!!! is almost here. This Sunday, February 28th at the Warsaw, starting at 10 am for the Fanatics ($20 admission) and at noon for the just slightly less fanatical ($3.00). And there are countless reasons to join us for round six of BRR: Patrick Adams 12″ singles, Sonic Youth albums, the Polish food of course, crazy psych 45s, Billy and Miriam from Norton, good rye bread, amazing dollar records in the dollar room, cute girls, WFUV volunteers at the front door, Polish cable TV in the bar, Denis and Josh from Montreal, records hidden under tables, Reggae Tim Harris, rockabilly sounds, Michael Young’s infamous record wall, disco stuff from John Jabra’s 21st Century Music, fun and dancing, wandering out to McCarren Park when things get too intense, more Polish beer, meeting fans of the Wedding Present, networking with other creative types, Skullsnaps and their children, hipster families, soundtrack albums, meeting other people not obsessed with digital technology, and oh yeah, the live music…

Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus has been asked to round up some DJs to provide a sonic atmosphere during the event. Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith, Nuggets) and Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo) are major highlights. Here’s the exact lineup:

12– Ira the K (Yo La Tengo / WFMU)
1— Leah Lugosi (The Nouvellas)
2—DJ Denis Montreal (Le Pick-Up)
3— Vibraphonic Vince (Raunch Hands)
4—Lenny Kaye
5— Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus
6— John Bastone (Record Riot)
7— Mike Womack

Prepare for a long day of fun and vinyl. Doors are open until 8pm. There are always good buys late in the day. Many dealers are looking to liquidate at that point. Don’t worry about eating: Warsaw has great food or just find a joint in the neighborhood to chow down and then return when you are ready for more shopping.

Warsaw is located at 261 Driggs Ave in Greenpoint, near the G train (and not that far from the L train). There is plenty of parking in the neighborhood. Check out RIOT NUMBER SIX…Sunday February 28th!

Although I am not a LP enthusiast, I know many people reading this blog are. Therefore, I feel compelled bring it to their attention that tomorrow, yes June 28, the Brooklyn Record Riot will be in effect at the Garden Spot’s very own Warsaw. General admission starts at noon, runs until 8:00 p.m. and will only set you back a paltry $3.00. The more dedicated collectors among you can gain early entry at 10:00 a.m. for $20.00. LPs, 45s, EPs, and “”collectibles in genres ranging from soul, rock, jazz, country and dance are promised. The “dollar room” will be making its triumphant return as well. If you happen to be a north Brooklynite and vinyl is your thing, tomorrow’s your big day!

THIS WEEKEND: The Brooklyn Record Riot

Although I am not a vinyl enthusiast myself the fact of the matter is I know a great many folks who are. Bearing this in mind I wanted to pass along  that the Third Annual Brooklyn Record Riot will be going down this upcoming Sunday, February 15, at The Warsaw right here in Greenpoint. Here’s the 411 per their press release:

Hey kids, the Brooklyn Record Riot is less than 96 hours away and the buzz is still growing mysteriously…this may our best show yet! BRR #3 features a number of new dealers (hey, I’ve never heard of them either but they promise great things), along with old stalwarts and local heroes. Plus we are now offering the DOLLAR ROOM, the area that also houses the bar (oh ok, have a beer while digging). Everything in this room is a buck, records and CDs, full-length albums and 12″ singles. Phast Phreddie leads a stellar group of DJs (identities unknown, tunes classic), and the Warsaw is cooking and cooking getting ready for this kielbasa and pierogi-fest. Of course the drinks will be flowing and the vibe steamy. Records of all genres and price-range will be offered. Hip families will be strolling around. There are always a few fanatics who make a crazy scene. Hours are from noon to 8pm and admission is three dollars (total lunatics can pay twenty dollars from 10am to noon)…

Early admission (10:00 a.m.) will set you back $20.00. Otherwise regular admission (from noon until 8:00 p.m.) is a measly three bucks! For more details point and click your way over to Iris Records.

While you’re in the area why not check Greenpoint’s very own Permanent Records, Eat Records and scrounge around for hidden treasure at The Thing— at two bucks a disk, how can you lose?
