This event is sponsored by the Somerville Arts Council and is part of their ArtsUnion Program. This is the 5th Year that What Cheer? has collaborated with the SAC to bring the popular Rock And Roll Yard Sale to Somerville.

What Cheer? has been doing their Rock And Roll Yard Sales for over 8 years now in Rhode Island and Massachusetts – including last year’s month-long residency at the Institute of Contemporary Art (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 has helped to make Vinyl Records popular once again (for the record, What Cheer? has been selling records since 1998).

Some of New England’s best Record and Music Sellers will be at this event. They’ll be joined by a number of vendors selling Vintage and DIY Handmade Items, making for a unique shopping experience where attendees will find 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 + 8-Track Tapes. There will also be Music + Audio Gear plus 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’re in some really tough economic times these days, but the DIY Movement is growing, with artists and creative people are taking to events like this to find an audience for what they do. the Somerville Rock And Roll Yard Sale is ultimately about all of the great vendors that participate.

This is a perfect way to support DIY & Independent Small Businesses!
