2012 D.C. Record Fair Set For Riot Act Comedy Theater On Sunday

WASHINGTON -- D.C.-area residents will have an opportunity to expand their vinyl collections on Sunday. After two recent fairs at Artisphere in Rossyln, the popular DC Record Fair will be held in Penn Quarter's Riot Act Comedy Theater.

In addition to more than 40 record dealers, the event promises "ample lighting, ample food and drinks, Bloody Marys, and right -- a ton of records," according to The Vinyl District.

The DJ schedule includes some familiar local names like Will Eastman of U Street Music Hall and Patrick Kigongo from local band Ra Ra Rasputin.

The fair has grown substantially since 2010 and as a result has moved to different venues.

But some things stay the same, like the time-staggered admission structure: To get the best records, you'll need to arrive before noon and pay $5. After noon, the selection won't be as great and admission will be only $2. The event lasts from 11 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
