WGXC Record Fair
Special Note re 2020 Record Fair
Due to the COVID-19 Crisis Wave Farm's WGXC will be skipping a 2020 Record Fair. We look forward to seeing you all in 2021!
WGXC Record Fair 2019 Information
The 2019 WGXC Record Fair will take place Sunday, September 15, 2019 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. (free admission) in Basilica Hudson’s Main Hall, 110 S. Front St Hudson, NY 12534. Vendors from near and far come together to sell vinyl, CDs, cassette tapes, DVDs, plus books, musical equipment and instruments, and radio-related ephemera.
WGXC's Record Fair is presented on the final day of Basilica Soundscape, an immersive, innovative weekend of art, music, and culture that draws an audience of thousands. Basilica Soundscape is curated by The Creative Independent’s Brandon Stosuy and Basilica Hudson co-founders Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone. This year features the ‘imaginary movie scores’ of Jim Jarmusch and Carter Logan’s SQÜRL; the one-woman all-hardware electronic orchestra Ela Minus; punk-poet-performer-cyborg Andrea Abi-Karam; CRICKETS — a supergroup featuring Roddy Bottum (Faith No More); JD Samson (Le Tigre), and Michael O’Neill (Princess). Also included will be the US and North American premiere of Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson's Virdulegu Forsetar for large brass ensemble; the colloquial grit and transcendent spirit of Circuit des Yeux; and the return of Basilica SoundScape's drummer in the rafters Greg Fox. The full music and writers lineup for Basilica SoundScape 2019 is HERE.
