New & Noteworthy: CO-OP 87

I stumbled upon this storefront today as I was running errands. I didn’t have time to pop in— but then again I really didn’t have the need: I do not collect LPs. However, I know a number people reading this do and would undoubtedly find what Co-Op 87 offers of interest. Per the sandwich board in front, this establishment feaures records from Kemado, Mexican Summer, Captured Tracks, Sacred Blues and Minimal Wave; and specializes in “limited edition” and “exclusive vinyl”. Those of you who are attending tomorrow’s Record Riot may very be behooved to swing by and give this place a look-see. Not only is Co-Op 87 a mere ten minute walk from the Warsaw, but I am damned curious to hear more about this, Greenpoint’s newest business!

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.
