Hey kids, wanted to let you know about a pretty cool happening coming this weekend. No, it’s not Valentine’s Day, you can spend that alone in your studio apartment sobbing into a bottle of Old Grandad like you do every year.
No, we’re talking about this Saturday February 15th, the first annual Bay Area Record Label Fair… or BARF for short (thanks, marketing!)
It’s happening at noon at Thee Parkside in SF and hell of cool labels will be there, including Slumberland, Castleface, Polyvinyl, Gold Robot, Father/Daughter, Empty Cellar, Alternative Tentacles, and a bunch more…including a small booth in the corner with your friends here at Antenna Farm. Plus live performances by Cocktails & Dog Party, Al Lover and Twin Steps.
And yeah, this whole thing is FREE. A great chance to come out and buy some classic titles direct from your favorite label. There will be deals galore, and some cool giveaways to boot.
Still not sold? Intrepid visitors can meet up with Isadora, the newest member of the Antenna Farm family, who we will be dragging along against all better judgment!
Details below. And stay up to date by checking the Facebook BARF event page.
