The Record Fair -- the umpteenth hosted by the Vinyl District, Som Records and DC Soul recordings -- has grown with every iteration. This fair has more than 20 vendors from around the region.
At the same time, the price has crept north. Tickets for the fair are $5 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and then $2 from noon until 5 p.m. There was not a premium hour at the D.C. Record Fair in April.
But call it a happy hour. Serious record fiends will gladly pay the price for access to bins of records before the crowds arrive to pick them over.
