E@RLY: Rock N Roll “Flea Market”

When: Sun., May 12, 12 p.m. 2013

For all the music nerds (like me) who frequent dark clubs, there's finally an event that'll boost those low vitamin D levels and provide a live music fix. Hosted by the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (2625 Durant Ave., Berkeley) as part of the popular L@TE night series, this daytime party, on Sunday, May 12, will gather music fans to swap vinyl and CDs and check out local bands. A record swap is exactly like it sounds: Choose a record and leave one behind. Tables will be set up to facilitate the swapping, plus the 'zine Maximum Rock'n'Roll, 1-2-3-4 Go! Records, and other organizations will be there with plenty of goodies. Brontez Purnell, former member of the now-defunct pop outfit Gravy Train!!!! and current ringleader of The Younger Lovers, has curated a lineup that includes Sixties jangle poppers Puce Moment; Straight Crimes, the latest punk project from former members of High Castle; metal band High Anxiety; and a DJ set from Ian Baldridge. Noon, $7 or free for BAM/PFA members and UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff.
