Tomorrow, the Brooklyn Flea's Smorgasburg market turns into a record fair for the second time this year. This time around, the line-up includes four big indie labels—Ghostly International, Merge, Mexican Summer, and Warp—as well as a host of smaller vendors. Some major music journalists will be selling their collections, as will record stores like Mondo Kim's and Greenpoint's Coop 87.
Since even the skinniest of indie rock snobs need to eat, the market's 100 food vendors will still be selling their wares. And Dogfish Head Brewery will be showing off a rare seasonal beer, "Bitches Brew," named, of course, after the Miles Davis album.
