The Great Rock and Roll Swap Meet has grown in both stature and popularity over the years, so much so that organizers had to move the event from the Hexagon to the Turf Club in order to have more room. The fourth annual Rock 'n Roll Swap Meet is set for January 25 at the Turf, and promises the biggest combination yet of great bands and a flea market of fantastic merchandise.
The Michigan indie-rock quartet the Hounds Below join local bands Me And My Arrow, Father You See Queen, and Tickle Torture, along with a slew of area musicians, artists, and designers who will be selling their unique wares throughout the club. DJ's Christy Hunt and Christian Fritz will also be spinning tunes throughout the night as well, concluding with a post-show dance party that should bring the event to a celebratory close.
Regular Gimme Noise contributors Erik Hess and Danny Sigelman will both be taking part in the Swap Meet, with Hess hawking his striking photographs and some records, while Sigelman is offering up a distinct selection of records, art, books, and "Chinese doo dads."
Not only will there be great live music on offer, but you could leave the Turf with some remarkable items while also doing your small part to support the creative scene in the Twin Cities.
