For the first time, this event will be held on a Sunday.
This is to allow for longer hours. This is our most-popular
event of the year! (vendor space is sold out).

For those of you in Rhode Island and Elsewhere, Somerville is
in the Boston area and not far at all. This will be worth the drive! for
directions, click here (this link is for a bar/restaurant that
is located behind where we’ll be set up)

This event is sponsored by the Somerville Arts Council and is part of
their ArtsUnion Program. This is the 4th year that What Cheer has collaborated
with the SAC to bring their popular Rock And Roll Yard Sale to Somerville.

What Cheer has been doing their Rock And Roll Yard Sales for
over 7 years now in Rhode Island and Massachusetts – including their
recent high profile month-long residency at the Institute of Contemporary Art
(the ICA) in Boston, as part of their exhibit on Vinyl Records + Art. With a
strong emphasis on Vinyl Records, these events have been part of a movement
that’s made Vinyl Records popular once again. Some of New England’s best
Record Sellers will be joined by excellent Vintage and DIY Handmade
Vendors, making for a unique shopping experience where attendees will find
great one-of-a-kind items available nowhere else. There will be all sorts of
Music-Related Items including many different formats of Vinyl Records, CDs,

Cassettes + maybe 8-Tracks /Tapes. there’ll also likely be Music + Audio Gear

rare Music Magazines, Silk Screened Posters + Promotional Items. There will

also be lots of classy Vintage + Re-Fashioned Clothing + Accessories in
addition to lots of amazing Local DIY Crafts. We are in some really tough
economic times these days, but the DIY Movement is growing and
artists and creative businesspeople are taking to events like this
to find an audience for what they do. This is a perfect way to
support DIY & Independent Small Businesses!
