Many mourned the departure of Fat Beats when they closed the doors to their Manhattan and LA stores last year. But as a wise man once told me, nothing is ever really gone. The legendary record store is back and in Brooklyn, at least for day. That’s right, those who crave the crackle only vinyl can supply will be ecstatic to know that Fat Beats will begin a monthly pop-up shop in their warehouse, located in the DUMBO section of the borough at 110 Bridge Street, starting on March 5. On hand to bless Fat Beats’ reopening will be some of Brooklyn’s heavy hitters on the ones and twos, DJs Spinna, Evil Dee and Rich Medina. Doors will reopen at noon. If you consider yourself to be a true hip-hop head, mark your calendar for Saturday and pop-up at the pop-up shop.
