Dust off those blue suede shoes, Teddy Boy suits and swing dresses and get ready to channel your inner Jerry Lee Lewis and Doris Day. The first instalment of Sydney Rock ‘N’ Roll & Alternative Market for 2016 is near!
The Sydney Rock ‘N’ Roll & Alternative Market is bopping into Manning Bar this February with a vast array of spectacular stalls, a massive record fair, swing dancing lessons, and a classic and vintage vehicle display. There will be vintage fashion, jewellery, food, posters, homewares, collectables, and retro hair and make-up stylists. And for the vinyl enthusiasts, make sure to check out the Record Fair. There’ll be more than 50,000 LPs and 45s to browse through, covering alternative, punk, metal, rockabilly, blues, jazz, country, reggae, club, hip hop and every other genre since the dawn of rock’n’roll.
Also on the foxy cards is a huge entertainment lineup. The market will be headlined by Celtic folk-punk rockers The Rumjacks and Australia’s kings of roots rock, The Detonators. Mother Truckers, The Hellcat III, Limpin’ Jimmy and The Swingin’ Kitten, Rod Almighty, The Crimplenes and The Rockabilly Rhino will also all be jiving by.
The Sydney Rock ‘N’ Roll & Alternative Market is on Sunday February 7 at Manning Bar, University of Sydney.
