That new cosmic odyssey, Rogue One, officially comes out today, but if you're a true fan, you saw it on Thursday.

Denver Punk Rock Flea Market: Holiday Edition
Glitter Dome
Noon Saturday, $5

Last week we were celebrating Christmas with black metal; this weekend we're going punk. Pick up some vinyl, DIY gear, comics, crass crafts and so much more; well over 100 vendors will be slinging goods at the Denver Punk Rock Flea Market. There will also be plenty of food trucks, so come hungry — and thirsty for the bar. Then keep the mosh going at an afterparty at the Marquis.
