TRENTON - The punk rock spirit is alive and well in Trenton.

Thousands of hardcore music fans braved the foul weather to attend the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market Sunday.

The festival began with a few dozen vendors last January, and has grown by leaps and bounds in a just over a year, says event organizer Joe Kuzemka.

"The punk rock ethic is to endure, it never really went away," he says. "It's always been underground and we kind of like it that way."

The punk rock movement dates back to the 1970s, when bands like the Sex Pistols and Ramones ruled the music world with their fast, aggressive, stripped-down sound.
