To paraphrase from the I Love Vinyl site: The “LP” (long playing) record was introduced in June of 1948. To celebrate the 65th anniversary of the format, the Brooklyn Museum, in conjunction with I Love Vinyl, is throwing a massive all-vinyl dance party on Thursday June 20 from 7-10pm in the Glass Pavilion. We call it LP48. Sound Liberation Front will provide their incredible “Tower Of Sound” custom-built high-fidelity sound system. The event is all-ages, and FREE (suggested donation). Get there early if you want to get in.
As the flyer says, there will also be a Mini Record Fair, with vendors curated by I Love Vinyl, including Turntable Lab, Brooklyn Bowl’s Collect-I-Bowl, and Natasha Diggs (Mobile Mondays) representing Brooklyn Flea.
Promotional support generously provided by our friends and vinyl community leaders old and new, Wax Poetics, Dust & Grooves, Vnylst, and Vinylfy.
