TODAY, 2/12! The Washington, DC Record Fair Returns to Riot Act Comedy Theater!

…and we’ve got the final list of confirmed DJ’s for the first DC Record Fair of 2012!

After two Record Fairs in 2011 staged just beyond the DC border, the Washington, DC Record Fair returns to DC proper on Sunday, February 12 at Washington’s new home for hilarity, the Riot Act Comedy Theater in the heart of Penn Quarter in downtown DC—news certain to be appreciated by a tiny, albeit vocal contingent of fair goers. (See? We listen.)

We’ll have 40 dealers from up and down the East Coast on both floors of Riot Act—10 above and 30 below—and of course, unlike the photo above, ample lighting, ample food and drinks, Bloody Marys, and right—a ton of records.

Did we mention the DJs? Here’s the schedule for the day:

11:00 – 12:00 Cobruhhh | Windian (Just added!)
12:00 – 1:00  Sean Marquand | Phenomenal Handclap Band
1:00 – 2:00 Patrick Kigongo | Ra Ra Rasputin
2:00 – 3:00 Cerphe Colwell | Cerphe’s Progressive Show
3:00 – 4:00 Will Eastman | Volta Bureau 
4:00 – 5:00 DJ Roz | Champion Sounds

Riot Act Comedy Theater affords fair attendees free street parking on Sundays and easy Metro access at the Gallery Place/Chinatown location.

11:00 – 12:00 – $5 Early Bird Admission
12:00 – 5:00 – $2 Admission

The DC Record Fair is brought you by Som Records, DC Soul Recordings, and us!

    I was a loyal DC Record Fair goer for the last 6 years, but recently moved away. Is there anyway to procure one of the DC record fair posters? I am especially interested in this poster because I moved to the LAND OF LINCOLN, a few ticks on the odometer north of Springfield, IL. If you, or someone you know, can help me get one of these posters for my collection I would be forever grateful. I have the February show poster from 2010 hanging in my home…it’s lonely!

      @Librarian_Lindz We could send you a PDF of the poster?
