If you’re a serious music fan, the only event you need to flag this weekend isn’t any old concert; it’s the massive Record & CD Show at Central Florida Fairgrounds. Determined collectors will get there for early admission at 7:30 a.m. (that costs $10, which is $7 more than general admission at 10 a.m.) and clean out those rare, sought-after albums that fetch a pretty price on Discogs. But for the less geeky vinyl nerds, there’s plenty to pursue all day in the crates and crates of records that magically surface for one day only. There’s also memorabilia, if you’ve got one of those man-cave music rooms HGTV is always melting down vinyl to cheaply stylize, including posters, videos and other music-minded knick-knacks. Pause whatever’s on the turntable now, and take a spin through this whirlwind record-lovers version of Sunday Funday.
