The Third Annual Rock and Rummage Spring Cleaning Spectacular is happening on a Friday this year -- this Friday, May 7th, to be exact, at the Belmont in Hamtramck (10215 Jos Campau, between Holbrook and Caniff). The event is a traveling rock 'n' roll-themed flea market with vintage clothing, handmade goods and other pop culture artifacts. This year, according to the press release, vendors will be selling "kitsch debris of American pop culture, jewelry, vinyl records, DVD's, cool clothing, vintage goods, art, and various one of a kind treasures." Also, our friend, Kyle McBee of Black Lodge will be acting as DJ, spinning tracks all night long. Bet we'll hear at least a couple of Stooges tracks. So check it out. Admission is free. Maybe you'll even find something cool to give to mom on Mother's Day this coming Sunday...
And after checking out the above event, you'll still have time to make it over to the second benefit show for the ailing Bootsey X (aka Bob Mulrooney), which takes place at Paycheck's (2932 Caniff), also in Hamtramck. This second benefit show was organized by the club's talent booker Toni Callwood and featured on the bill are the 3-D Invisibles, Margaret Doll Rod, Circus Boy, Cinecyde, Brother Crimewave and Foxy Fearless. You should definitely check it out. It's a great cause for one of the coolest rock 'n' roll dudes to ever come out of the Motor City. Admission is $5.
