WFMU Record Fair – Who’s Hangin’? Who’s Bangin’?
« on: October 11, 2010, 10:25:09 AM »
So there’s a number of people coming in special for this thing – Lisa Jane Persky (and her husband Andy), Mackro, & David in DC (aka Dorvid, Barry Egan, etc). Anybody else coming from out of town?

I’m taking a volunteer shift, likely Sat morning, and then plan to be around for the whole thing on Saturday. Who’s going and which day? Do people wanna head to a drinking establishment Sat night, like we did last year?

Sound off!

I plan to be there on Saturday and I'd definitely like to gather with some FOT.

I reached a bunch of people more easily over on FB & there's def something brewing, looks like for Saturday. We'll figure out a spot to head to afterwards - at least a dozen people are in for whatever we decide to do. PM me w/your number if you want to keep in touch.

I'm on ticket booth duty Sat morning - so I'll see youse there!

I'm 75% sure I'll be at the record fair Sat. I'd love to meet up with some FOT during or after.

I can only do Sunday but I'm there all day.
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

I'm coming in from Toronto and will most probably be there Saturday as well.
Eagerly awaiting the release of "Pleasure Island: A Rock Fontasy"

Not sure I'll make the fair itself, but would definitely be down for drinks in the evening...

I think all of the From Maplewoods will be attending on Saturday.

Question: I have usually gone on Friday nights or Sunday mornings. How insane is the crowd scene on Saturday? Will there be a line to get in? Standing room only during Terre T's show?  Thanks.

Saturdays are usually packed, but not intolerably so.

Sad to miss most of you, but I'll be volunteering at the ticket booth Friday and then helping break down Sunday.  I'm no serious collector, so I'll probably do my shopping among the Sunday afternoon dregs.  Hope to see some of you anyway.

I have the same questions.

Also, I will hopefully have button nametag things for FOT that want them. Free, so don't be a munch and hoard them.

I have the same questions.

I did the door shift on Saturday from 330-7 last year, and there was a line for most of the time I was there.

My experience re the performance area is that it gets crowded during the live sets, but its more prom dance-floor crowded, not ABC No Rio crowded.

That is very helpful. Thanks!

I could do this no prob - tickets are TEN MEASLY DOLLARS!

edit: that is to say, I will do both -- whatever afterward FOT thing we set up for post-fair, but I could head over to Knitting Factory after ...
