The musical showcase will include performances by Budris, Disco Teen ’66 and Cold Fronts.
To date, featured vendors include Trash American Style, Mangold, GLO Photography, Erik Hooker (welder and metalworker), Douglas Calderone (fine artist) and Nick Palazzo (illustrator). Crafters and jewelers will also be participating.
Tickets will be $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Advance reservations can be made through Facebook.com/mouthpeace.ct.
Refreshments will be available for purchase.

Mouthpeace Arts Collaborative hopes to establish a recurring marketplace within local venues and continue to provide exhibition space for artists to show off their talents and creations at no cost to them.
