Beat Swap Meet 

When: Sun., March 30, 12-6 p.m. 2014
Price: $5
Vinyl’s continued popularity proves that physical formats aren’t dead (yet): In 2012, Nielsen Soundscan recorded the highest vinyl sales ($177 million) since 1997. Locally, the growing presence of record stores — most notably 1-2-3-4 Go! Records, which is not only expanding but also phasing out its CD stock — also indicates a small push against the digital trend. Now comes Beat Swap Meet, a Los Angeles-based traveling swap meet featuring dealers and collectors from all over the United States, which will stop by Berkeley’s La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave.) and Starry Plough (3101 Shattuck Ave.) on Sunday. Organizers promise a variety of genres for sale/swap; DJ sets by Platurn, Davey D, and others; music by Brian Oblivion, EarDr.Umz, Rokem, and Sk.ill; a live performance by jazz-sampling rapper Dr. Oop; and much more.
