Annoyed with all this retail brouhaha? Stay out of the malls and slushy big box parking lots this season and buy local – the Xmas Edition of The Punk Rock Flea Market is coming up on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18th @ Club Absinthe, from 12-6pm. Our biggest and baddest event yet – over 20 different vendors under one roof, drink specials, great music, and a visit from our very own Punk Rock Santa! (Spoiler Alert: it might just be Benjamin Rispin in a tacky Xmas sweater with powdered donut sugar in his beard – but he’s great with the kids!)
HEY HEY! The Xmas Edition of the Punk Rock Flea Market @ Club Absinthe is coming up and we’re looking for vendors!

Only $15 a spot – event will run 12-6pm! Cheers, Bubs! ❤ #PRFM@clubabsinthe @benrispin@compilation905 #HamOnt #market#punkrockflea #callforvendors#vendorswanted
Hey Hey! *insert Krusty laugh* You lookin for a good time post-Art Crawl tonight? Swing by Club Absinthe for some retro boogie action. Our buds Born in the Eighties are throwin it down alongside the one and only Party Jebus. I’ll be setting up shop after Art Crawl dies down too, so pop in and hang with us!
The weather’s looking good for tomorrow night’s James Street North Art Crawl! Come see all the artists and makers along the street as we showcase the best in Hamilton’s creative scene! So many great events popping up, so there’s lots to see this month! I’ll have lots of cozy items for the cold months ahead, including my soft, warm Fazooli blankets, perfect for snuggling and binge watching your favourite shows, so don’t miss out! I will also be re-setting up @clubabsinthe later in the evening when the street dies down for AfterCrawl with @bornintheeighties_ so pop on by for a drink!
SUPERCRAWL IS FINALLY SUPER OVER! I want to thank each and every one of you – everyone involved in the massive production that is the festival – your hard work and determination have been much appreciated by the entire city. You should feel so proud of your efforts! I want to thank everyone who made it out to check out the action over the past 3 days – I hope you all had a fabulous time and thanks to those who stopped by and checked us out! I also want to thank Kevin @sensationalsamosa in the Farmer’s Market as well as Marko @godtoldmetorelax and Tina @66mundo@clubabsinthe for absolutely everything – you guys are incredibly amazing and I love you. Jeff @oldjeffyboy – I can’t believe you held out so long DJing, you are a champ. Also big shout outs to my lovely assistants – Megan @megvdv and Mark @chaos_in_gotham – I couldn’t have done this without you guys, seriously – you saved my life this weekend more times than I can count. Thank you to Tim and Mark at Sonic Unyon for literally changing the face of Hamilton and bringing this festival to life for everyone – what a Herculean task, and yet you make it look so effortless – you guys rock! And last but not least all the amazingly talented vendors and artists who were a part of the markets I ran – you guys are all some of the most creative and wonderful people I’ve met and I hope everyone had a great time – I know it was a lot of hard work but you guys knocked it out of the park. We learned a lot together this weekend – the ups and downs of working a festival are many, but we did it – and it was DOPE AS FUCK. Cheers everyone! AMAZING JOB. 🍾🏆🎉
IT BEGINS! TODAY’S THE DAY WE KICK IT ALL OFF!
