There’s a nifty place where pompadours reign supreme, cheeseburgers are chased with a malt, and every band has a stand-up bass. It’s called the Rockabilly Night Market, and it’s local. Dances of Vice presents the 3rd annual Fourth of July party featuring new and vintage vendors, food trucks, live performances, and dancing. We can’t think of a better way to salute the good ol’ U.S. of A. than with this celebration of ’50s Americana and trailer park glitz. Tatted-up rebels with and without causes can cruise their Cadillacs on over to the vintage car show while buxom Bettie Pages can pose in the pin-up photo booth. Cash O’Riley and Sean Coleman & The Quasars will get things rolling with some outlaw rock, followed by Bettina May and Raquel Reed’s sultry burlesque. Arrive early for the hourlong open PBR bar!
