Crate Diggers PDX Record Fair and Afterparty


White Owl Social Club (map) Southeast
Sat., Aug. 26, 12 p.m. 2017 21+


Thanks to the locally based record-selling website Discogs, the internet has become a terrific place to score used vinyl. But there’s nothing like flexing those fingers to physically sift through the bins—which is why Discogs hosts an excellent annual record fair right here on its Portland turf, and Crate Diggers’ fourth installment should be the best one yet. Crate Diggers is a day- and night-long party with vinyl sellers from near and afar, so there’ll be plenty of treasures to seek both inside the walls of White Owl Social Club and out on the expansive patio. Plus there’s a bevy of DJs for the daytime record fair—including Deena B, Action Slacks, DJ Void, and DJ Roane—and once the sun sets, Crate Diggers turns into a supreme night of well-spun cuts, with DJ sets from Boston’s Soul Clap, Seattle’s Supreme La Rock, and Portland’s own legendary Rev Shines. It’s a great way to celebrate the crate-digging community of Portland, brought to you by a site that’s revolutionized record selling—and Discogs has also created a formidable online database of crucial musical info that grows more comprehensive every minute. (They’ve even added a used book marketplace, too, at the brand-new Celebrate music, community, and killer wax at Discogs’ Crate Diggers. NED LANNAMANN
