Record Raid Returns for Spring Fair



For any music lover, it’s hard to beat the rush that comes with finding a hard-sought LP. “It’s a bit like treasure hunting,” said Hunter King, a WTUL DJ and founder of Record Raid. “There’s a sense like, ‘I can’t believe this found it’s way to me.’ And to play vinyl, it’s a bit ritualistic. There’s a ceremony to it, you know?” On Saturday (5.13), audiophiles and physical format neophytes alike will share in the day of digging with the music-focused flea market offering live DJs spinning music, raffles, food trucks, and of course, vinyl.
