If you’re a record collector in New York City, then we’ve got your weekend plans set. On Saturday, July 27, Discogs — one of the top names in the vinyl-selling business — is hosting a free fair in Times Square. As the name Crate Diggers implies, this is your opportunity to sift through tons of albums and score big on new releases, quality repressings, coveted titles, or even rare albums.

What’s going to be even more fun than walking away with some new vinyl for your collection, however, is the after-party. The actual fest, which runs from 10 am to 6 pm EST, is free for everyone, but from 7 pm to 1 am, there’s going to be a can’t-miss concert at the Playstation Theater in Times Square. Method Man and Redman, Roy Ayers, Funk Flex and DJ Red Alert, Smif-N-Wessun, Black Moon, Mad Skillz, and more are set to take the stage.

Normally, tickets to the after-party would set you back $50. However, if you snag one now and enter the discount code DISCOGS at checkout, then your ticket will only be $25. You read that right — because our friends at Discogs are so sweet, they want you to come to Crate Diggers for half-off the normal price.

So not only will have the opportunity to find your new favorite vinyl, but you’ll also be able to see legendary acts like Roy Ayers and Method Man in one night. For cheap.

The Disney Plus sign-up menu is displayed

Whether you can watch Family Guy online via Disney Plus depends on what part of the world you call home. Simply put, Family Guy is available on Disney Plus in some areas, but not all. Why? Well, not all streaming services possess the rights to the popular animated comedy, but that's all changing as we speak.

In short, Family Guy is only available on Disney Plus if you live in one of the countries where Star is included in your Disney Plus subscription. That means countries like the U.K., Australia, and Canada have Family Guy on Disney Plus, but the U.S. misses out.
