Most yard sales are great sources of old books, chipped plates, toy cars -- and for me, boredom. I'm just not into paying people to take unwanted junk off their hands. But Saturday's Somerville Rock 'n' Roll Yard Sale sounds infinitely more interesting. All things music will be for sale -- vinyl records, posters, stereo equipment, tapes -- along with vintage clothing and vegan food. Bands will play, and a DJ will spin records found at thrift stores and yard sales. Best of all, there'll be an exhibit of bad thrift-store lamps -- the worst of which will be honored with a lightbulb-smashing ceremony. Not boring in the slightest.

Festivities take place from 3 to 7 p.m. in Union Square. Thanks to the Somerville Arts Council's ArtsUnion for hosting.
