This weekend, if you’re at a loss for what to do, you have some neighborhood hopping to do – There’s the opening week of the Ballston Arts+Craft Fair, the DC Record Fair, and Here Comes The Sun exhibit of John Lennon’s lithograph artwork.

record_posterThis is the second DC record fair of its kind, sponsored by Som Records, DC Soul Recordings & others. And looks like they’re taking it up a notch this time with a bar, kitchen, 10 dj’s, & an appearance by Chuck Brown! It’s also double the capacity and 30 record dealers from East Coast — double the number of record dealers as last time (thank god, considering the smog of evaporated sweat in close quarters last time, which we blogged about!)
