Mess brings Garage to Jinx

Lila Miller, A&E Editor

Are you feeling thrifty? Nearly every college student is trying to save a buck without cutting out the fun. Josh Sterno (of Dad Joke Productions) and The Jinx are back at it again with their second Punk Rock Garage Sale. In what seems to be turning into a seasonal institution, the Punk Rock Garage Sale has something to offer for everyone.

The last sale in February was hosted by Sulfur Studios and included a plethora of vendors selling everything from independently-published ‘zines, vintage clothing and records, to action figures from the eighties and a hand-painted portrait of cult favorite family from the animated series “The Simpsons.”

Josh Sterno hosts these events under his moniker company, Mess Mess, which features collectables across the ages, from t-shirts to VHS tapes and toys. This sale’s vendors include local illustrators, artists and purveyors of oddities: Titty Bats, Hyperrealist, Fist City, Mess Mess, Lila Miller, previous Armstrong alumni Ed Nixon with Jackalope Slim Print Co., and more to be announced.

The second Punk Rock Garage Sale will be held Saturday, Sept. 3, from 12–6 p.m. at The Jinx, which visitors should note is a 21+ establishment. Entry is donation-based and proceeds go toward Statts Fest, a music festival to benefit Jason Statts, a victim of gun violence.
