WFMU Fair Recap

WFMU Record & CD Fair 2010 Recap
Have you ever been to a record fair?  No.  Read on.  Yes, well unless you’ve been to this one you still have no idea how huge this thing is and you should still read on.  Actually, beyond reading you can view this single take I did with my camera – I just held it at chest level and walked around the fair (trying not to double back ever – but there is an awkward area where you basically have to) occasionally turning to view things.  It’s not a pro video by any means, but it gives you an idea of the drastic scope of this thing, the WFMU Record and CD Fair:

 This was our (Redscroll) 2nd year setting up at the fair.  It was a wild success once again.  Friday, we spent the day buying and setting up trades.  Saturday we sold and made some purchases, then Sunday we sold and bought again (a partial list of what we bought is at the bottom of this post).  If you follow us on twitter then you know that this event is also great for people/celeb watching.  I got to talk to Q-Tip (unfortunately, I couldn’t really sell him anything; he also was trying to be as inconspicuous as possible with his hood up and sunglasses ever present – like the unibomber really).  Todd Barry and Horatio Sanz (I think) were there.  ?uest Love (The Roots, y’ know?) was also there, but we didn’t actually see him.  I’m betting there were other notables as well – I just didn’t seem them.  Please do join us next year.
