Buying music has become an increasingly isolating affair. Now that most of us have fallen prey to the convenience of downloads, the age of hanging in record stores and flirting over vinyl is pretty much over. The Independent Label Market at Spitalfields Market this Saturday May 19 (11-5pm), is there to remind us all how social buying music can be. Expect stalls from big names in independent music including Warp, Domino and Fabric, manned by everyone from musicians to label bosses selling rare vinyl and merch. Go on, give your record collection a revamp. Ellie Clayton
