Fat Beats Announces New Pop-Up Shop This Saturday, May 21


(May 19, 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) Fat Beats is happy to announce that they’re re-opening their Brooklyn warehouse doors this Saturday, May 21st, for their May Pop-Up Shop and music event. This is a free, one day only event and third pop-up shop for the legendary record outlet, which officially closed its last two retail stores this past September, and follows in the footsteps of their first Pop-Up Shop in March, which hosted DJ Spinna, DJ Evil Dee and Rich Medina, and their Record Store Day opening in April, featured Waxpo’s Chico Mann, Stones Throw’s Stepkids, Fat Beats Records’ Neek The Exotic & Large Professor and a heartfelt Gang Starr tribute by CSC Funk Band in memory of Guru. As with both of the past shops, surprise guest appearances and performances are very likely. In addition to the renowned selection of vinyl, CDs, and merchandise, there will also be a collection of new titles that will only be available that day for direct retail purchase.

Fat Beats is kicking off this summer with an impressive line-up of performances. Artists include Has-Lo, Blitz The Ambassador, Dinner At The Thompson’s, Brown Bag Allstars, Succio Smash, Kooley High, Q-Unique, Erin Barra, and Bio Ritmo. The warehouse is located at 110 Bridge Street in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, and the entrance is at the rear of the building. The Fat Beats Pop-Up Shop will be open from noon – 8pm.
