Northside is home to a lot of weirdos and, generally, weirdos have great taste in music. That’s why vendors and buyers from all over the region file into the neighborhood’s North Church every year for the Northside Record Fair.

Inside, you can play “count the Unknown Pleasures T-shirts” while you navigate the bevy of collectors to get to the next vendor table. Fans of all genres will likely find something new or unexpected on vinyl, cassette, CD or wax cylinder (if you’re old school).

As the fair’s website reads, “This ain’t no Beatles and Elvis fair. These vendors will be bringing out the good stuff, the rare stuff, the stuff you only dream of finding.” The whole neighborhood opens its doors during the record fair, so eat, shop and drink local.

11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 3). $5; $10 10 a.m. early-bird admission. North Church, 4222 Hamilton Ave., Northside, northsiderecordfair.com.
