A day of alternative art happens on Saturday, April 26, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. — the Wrong Brain Spring Bizaare is back, with more unconventional, underground art than ever before. The Millspace at the Newmarket Mills, 55 Main St., Newmarket, will be brimming with vintage and recycled goods, photography, records, clothing, jewelry, knits, aromatherapy, books, pins, patches, to name just a bit, in addition to live music by People Skills, Andrew Szirbik, Superdude and Stephen Ormond. Add in a few tarot readings, a make-your-own-pin stand, a bake sale and a zine library, and you might never go back to the right brain. Visit the event’s Facebook page for more information.
