Rock and Roll Yard Sale — All Weekend

2009 RRYS/ToshNew roomier location! This is the same RRYS (organized by What Cheer Antiques & Vintage) held in the past at AS220. But let’s face it, it had become a victim of its own success and it was sometimes hard to eat, drink, try stuff on, and linger over the posters, vinyl and DIY crafts and jewelry at a leisurely pace. The new location is right around the corner from AS220, on Westminster Street near Eddy, in what was until recently Waste Not Want Not. All the tables are sold out for both days so there will be tons of stuff. The entertainment schedule is still in the works and includes live acts as well as a full compliment of DJ’s whom Mr. Daltry promises will be spinning “vinyl records only” (with the apparent exception of DJ-JD, who spins clay).

Live acts so far and in no particular order; Sleepyhead, Brown Bird, Tad Overbaugh, The ‘mericans, Cotton Candy, Farmer John Kenny, Chrisy Gavin, and — “I’m not worthy!” — Ted Widmer the former Lord Rockingham of the Upper Crust! (I doubt he still gets all dandified and bewigged due to his present, more elevated station in life. . . a step down if you ask me.) And of course there is a Dose connection with Annie and dude spinning as the Pommes Frites DJs, and I think I’m a judge in the ‘Worst Album Cover’ competition. And Narragansett beer. More info and updates at Facebook.

Saturday noon to 8pm/Sunday noon to 6pm

Free admission, 232 Westminster Street near Eddy Street

    The dude and I are humbled by the company we’re in this weekend. The list of entertainers just keeps growing! Ben Pilgrim, the Glass Jars, Ben Cooley Hall, Chris Monti and Joseph Paye (who recently rocked with Steady Bongo), Cliff Wood from Cozy Collective dueting with Chris Daltry, and a -ton- of awesome DJs (who, unlike us, probably know what they’re doing).

    Can’t wait to see those awful album covers, either.
