(April 15, 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) Fresh off the success of their premiere pop-up shop in March, Fat Beats Brooklyn is pulling out all the stops for an all-day, all-out celebration of vinyl culture and live music. From noon to 11pm on Record Store Day (Saturday, April 16) the landmark record label and retailer will transform their DUMBO warehouse into a hip-hop Woodstock complete with performances by Neek the Exotic and Large Professor, The Stepkids, Chico Mann, Phenomenal Handclap Band, DJ Jab, DJ Center, !llmind, Amir, Eternia, Danny Dann the Beat Mann, Masta Ace, Maticulous, Kev Brown & Kaimbr, and Ray West.
The event commemorates the one-year anniversary of Guru’s passing with a Gang Starr tribute from Fat Beats Records own CSC Funk Band, featuring Mista Sinista on the scratches and many surprise emcees.
Not only will Fat Beats’ legendary vinyl library be on sale, but everyone in attendance will receive a 10% coupon for the relaunched FatBeats.com , a chance to win a free one-year subscription to Wax Poetics, and a chance to win a free 500-unit printing of vinyl jackets from Dorado. Small Batch Brooklyn will be serving custom sandwich creations and brewing small-batch coffee, so bring your record bag, invite your friends, and come hungry for a good time this Saturday at Fat Beats Brooklyn.
