The latest Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market on March 15 – already a must-do on Sydney’s event calendar – will feature American garage-soul wrestlers Los Straitjackets fronted by Californian singer Big Sandy.
Part market, part music festival, part meeting place, this is one of Sydney’s most unique shopping experiences over three floors and two giant courtyards of Manning House, in the grounds of Sydney University.
Rock ‘n’ roll, alternative, vintage, handmade and unique clothing for men, women and children, jewellery, accessories, posters, artwork, homewares, collectables, retro hair and make-up stylists, vinyl LPs and cult DVDs, food and drink are all part of the fare.
Legendary Californian roots music singer Big Sandy is leaving his Fly-Rite band at home to reunite with his buddies Los Straitjackets for a surf and rock spectacular. They promise a dynamic and exciting show with slices of surf, rockabilly, '60s groove, rock and soul.
When it comes to high-energy rock’n’ roll surfin’ sounds, nobody matches the power of Los Straitjackets . These mystery men in Mexican wrestling masks formed in Nashville and have been Grammy nominees, with 19 albums under their belts.
The undercard features Pat Capocci and The Mothertruckers, plus the usual DJs. Entry is $5, with kids under 12 FREE. Doors open at 10.30am.
