Scenes from LP48

Brooklyn Museum x I Love Vinyl

Image
This is a picture of the cover of what is considered to be the very first "LP" (long playing) record, as they came to be known, introduced in June of 1948. To celebrate the 65th anniversary of the format, the Brooklyn Museum, in conjunction with I Love Vinyl, is throwing a massive all-vinyl dance party on Thursday June 20 from 7-10pm in the Glass Pavilion. We call it LP48. Sound Liberation Front will provide their incredible "Tower Of Sound" custom-built high-fidelity sound system. The event is all-ages, and FREE (suggested donation). Get there early if you want to get in.

As the flyer says, there will also be a Mini Record Fair, with vendors curated by I Love Vinyl, including Turntable Lab, Brooklyn Bowl's Collect-I-Bowl, and Natasha Diggs (Mobile Mondays) representing Brooklyn Flea.
Promotional support generously provided by our friends and vinyl community leaders old and new, Wax Poetics, Dust & Grooves, Vnylst, and Vinylfy.

Another beautiful set of photos, from our last party at the Gallery at LPR, courtesy of our six-sensed photographer Seher Sikandar. It was so dark in the party that she couldn't see anything through the camera. But she pulled it off swimmingly, as you can see. Brings new meaning to shot in the dark...
