High Fidelity

As many of you probably already know, the WLUW Record Fair is coming up next weekend at the Pulaski Park fieldhouse. I'll be DJing in the second room for an hour at 12 noon on Saturday, the 14th and will probably be hanging around volunteering afterwards, so stop by and say hi.

Prepare for the WLUW Record Fair!
It's almost that time to organize your shelves, empty out your pockets and prepare to be rocked out. Spend Saturday, April 14 and Sunday April 15, 2007 at the 5th Annual WLUW Record Fair. Saturday from 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm WLUW-Chicago will be hosting our FIFTH annual record fair, a benefit for 88.7fm.

This is a banner year for us at Record Fair HQ. For five years, we have been bringing you two full days filled with the best selection of vinyl, CDs, posters, 'zines, and art available under one roof in the entire Chicagoland area. Come on out, even if you're just a casual collector or a serious crate digger (BTW, crate diggers, Saturday Pre-Admission 8am-10am entitles free admission for entire weekend!). It's only $7 each day or $5 with postcard/any ad. $25 for Saturday pre-admission.

Located once again at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse at 1419 W. Blackhawk, in Wicker Park, this event will have aisles and aisles of everything a music aficionado could possibly want. We'll have vendors offering rock, pop, psychedelia and folk, to soul, jazz, country, international, R&B, hip-hop, rock-a-billy and everything in-between. If it's rare or weird, we'll have that too. Also, videos, DVDs, posters, art, and anything that isn't nailed down. We'll also have championships in our Rec Room devoted to every music lover's favorite games: Guitar Hero and DDR!

Food will be provided by the Heartland Cafe all day, and be sure to check out special deals at the WLUW Bargain Basement. But if you're there for the music, you're in luck! The 2007 WLUW Record Fair boasts celebrity DJ sets from our favorite local bands, publications and labels: Numero Group, Pitchfork Media, Thrill Jockey, Flameshovel, Pit Er Pat, The Eternals, and Dave Fischoff. Live sets by Reddelicious, Unicycle Loves You, Rue Royale, and Leaves.Saturday is headlined by local power-poppers The Brown Party, and on Sunday, we're topping everything off with a performance by Dischord's Antelope (Members of Supersystem, El Guapo).

It's the Fifth Annual WLUW Record Fair, April 14th and 15th at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse. For more info visit, or contact
