041709record.jpgYou'll be out picking through bins on Saturday's Record Store Day. So you'll have the fever. You'll be on the hunt. (Someone's gotta have that crazy-obscure EP, or that ridiculously collectible picture disc.) And you might as well keep going.

Here's an event that not a record store per se, but it honors the same spirit of independent business and social interaction: the seventh annual CHIRP Record Fair, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Union, 1340 W. Washington Blvd. Admission is $7, but you get $2 off with a receipt from any area record store dated from this Saturday.

WTF is CHIRP? "CHIRP is a non-profit organization formed to bring a new community radio station to Chicago. This station would be independently owned and operated by the group, and would provide a voice for independent music and views."
