Punk Rock flea market takes over Cambridge Brewery on Saturday

The Punk Rock flea market mixes music and art mixing leather, metal and hip-hop in a genre melting pot of the local music scene at the Cambridge Brewery

Grab your leather jackets, spiked gloves and platform shoes, because the Punk Rock Flea Market is coming to Rhythm and Brews Brewing Company.

Starting at 1 p.m. on June 4, fans of punk rock and live music can come to Rhythm and Brews at 1000 Bishop St. in Cambridge to listen to local artists and shop at more than 30 vendors for all things punk.

Owner of Have Hope Shows, Kyle Wappler said this event was a long time coming.

“This is the first since the pandemic that we plan to be at scale,” Wappler said.

Featuring over 19 acts, musical guests range from classic punk legends like Handheld to local hip-hop artist Jerelle. With indoor and outdoor stages, there will be something for everyone.

“We cover pretty much every subgenre from punk, metal and on the opposite side we have guys from hip-hop as well,” Wappler said.

Organizers Pink Lemonade Records and Have Hope Shows are working together to organize the event to showcase local music and artisans.

“These shows are very community-oriented, everyone knows each other a bit, so the feeling of just being together is a long time coming,” Wappler said. “It’s good for the local music community when we can have a diverse show with these different genres.

Show organizers expect around 400 to 500 people to show up throughout the day. The market and music will start at 1 p.m. and continue until 2 a.m. with an EDM after party. For more information and tickets, head over to their Facebook page here.
