The community constantly works together to make great things happen around town.  Without the support of others it would be almost impossible to do anything in Birmingham! Here are the sponsors that help bring the Birmingham Punk Rock Flea Market to life.

 

Birmingham Oddities:
 


Birmingham Oddities is the best shop in Birmingham to find bizarre gifts and collectibles. It is a gallery of Oddities of all kinds. "Specimens range from Tribal Human Trophy Skulls, to hand made Voodoo dolls."

Birmingham Oddities is also a huge supporter of local arts.  They host/sponsor events around Birmingham showcasing amazing pieces from locals around town.  Very lucky to have Birmingham Oddities as a sponsor for the Flea Market!

"You're Alive, Get Stoked About It!"

"These are the words that our friend Cory Seals left us with just a few days before his passing in 2015. The guy was a rockstar! To honor his life, we are throwing the 3rd annual GET STOKED music and arts festival on his birthday weekend. LET'S GIVE BACK! We will be donating a portion of the $10 door to Girl's Rock Bham." -Trim Tab Brewing Company

Ono Ice is a mobile shave ice stand serving handmade, naturally-flavored shave ice. Our ice is shaved on a manually operated block ice shaver that produces a very fine textured ice similar to that found in Hawaii. Our flavors are handmade with all natural, fresh ingredients. We do not use artificial colors or flavors. The name Ono Ice was inspired by the word "ono" which means “delicious” in Hawaiian! Ono Ice sets up at different locations in the Birmingham area and is available for parties, birthdays, weddings and events. Like us to find out where we'll be next! 

How it all began:  Growing up in Birmingham, my favorite time of year was always summer and one of my favorite summertime activities was a trip to the shave ice stand. There was just something special about that sweet, icy treat that emodied the feeling of summer to me.In my early twenties I moved away from Birmingham to see what the rest of the world had to offer. For the next 12 years lived in other, bigger cities and...

Me and My Knife

Band Members: Justin, Tim and John

How would you explain your band in three adjectives? (feel free to get weird and creative)

Loud, fast, tight.-Tim

What are yall currently listening to?
 

JOHN: I’m all over the place. Stuff getting the heaviest play at my house right now: lots of Norma Tanega, that new SURVIVE record, High on Fire, Caves, All Dogs, the newest Dinosaur Jr., basically a whole bunch of stuff that sounds nothing like MAMK!  

TIM: I’m all over the place, too.  Got to see Santigold in Atlanta last week and she’s been sitting atop playlist throne for the past week. A month or two ago I discovered a now defunct (I think?) band outta Melbourne, Australia called the Hawaiian Islands. I listen to them a lot. But over the last few months I’ve listened to a lot of  Birdcloud, Diet Cig, Shallow Cuts, Julien Baker, and Little Bags. The new Lydia Loveless is predictably rad, too.


JUSTIN: It's been Giorgio Murderer/Buck Biloxi and the Fucks this week. It's a budd...

The band’s name, pronounced zee-no-sign, references the feeling that time keeps going faster. Formed in Fall 2015, this fXmmX fronted Birminghamian two-piece churns a heavy vibe that layers shoegaze timbers, with some songs having synthesizer or sampler bases in lieu of guitar. They’ve been described as “droney post punk” and “for fans of: getting lost in your head and coming out on top.”



Band Members:

Anna Thomical and Walker Yacney

How would you explain your band in three adjectives? 

Anna: lofty, experimental, spooky

Walker: musical, human

What are yall currently listening to?

Anna: At this very moment, Bauhaus, but it greatly varies-- lately G.L.O.S.S. have been helping wake me up on my early morning drive to work, and True Widow’s new Avvolgere has also been in regular rotation. Tim Hecker is one of my autumnal go-tos.

Walker: crickets
 

Icons/Influence?

Walker: Elvis, Daft Punk, Melvins

Anna: Boards of Canada, Autechre, Slowdive, Portishead, and many many more

What is the most bizarre...

Nowhere Squares




This interview was done by Paul the singer Of Birminghams own Nowhere Squares
 

Band Members: Paul (singer), Justin (guitar), Spencer (drums), Andy (bass) & Jennifer (keyboards)



How would you explain your band in three adjectives? 

Explosive, geeky, raucous



What are y'all currently listening to?

old Blues, early Wolf Parade, Carseat Headrest, Klara Lewis, Kraftwerk, lots of Bebop & Swing ( old Jazz), Harry Potter audiobooks!



Icons/Influence?

Ian Curtis School of Dance, early Who & Kinks, Wire, B-52s, Bikini Kill, Billy Childish, Violent Femmes, The Smiths, high school in general





What is the most bizarre thing that has happened while y'all were on stage?

A very drunk frat guy jumped on stage to be part of "the action" & remained for 2 songs until he attacked Andy (who defended himself with his bass!) and was kicked out of the club. When he was gone, we realized the dude had also smashed our vintage wooden tambourine to smithereens!



Any shows coming up soon?

What is Body Positivity?“Body Positivity is a radical redefinition and reclamation of the body. It arose in response to a Western culture that recognizes only white, able-bodied, heterosexual, and thin bodies as ‘worthy’ and ‘beautiful’.” -Caitlin of The Ellipses Project Why is body positivity...
