Celebrate summer and the 65th anniversary of the public release, in 1948, of the LP (long play) record at the Museum’s first Thursday night dance party. I Love Vinyl, one of Brooklyn’s most popular dance parties, mixes disco, house, soul, hip-hop, afrobeat, and more, strictly on vinyl. Featuring the DJs Ge-ology, Amir (Kon & Amir), The Twilite Tone (Common), OP!, Jon Oliver (East Village Radio), and Scribe spinning records through the Tower of Sound, a custom-built, hi-fidelity sound system, courtesy of Brooklyn's Sound Liberation Front. You can also peruse a selection of vinyl for your own collection at the event's 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.
