Flee the cubicle and head to the RISD Museum on FRIDAY (the 12th) for the next Music Friday show featuring GIRL HOWDY (5:30 pm, 21+ and $8, with cash bar, visit risdmuseum.org for details). Then head over to AS220 for a great cause (and the show o' the weekend), featuring THE RICE CAKES, BO-PEEP (Japan), INVISIBLE HOURS, and the revamped LOLITA BLACK (Scarlett, Kayleigh, and the boys killed at Machines With Magnets last week — holy shit); proceeds benefit Girls Rock! Rhode Island. Call 401.831.9327.

SATURDAY (the 13th) features MARK CUTLER and his MEN OF GREAT COURAGE at the Box on North Main Street (can't beat their $5 beer-and-shot special, call 401.641.4589), and for our South Coast friends, check out quality 75orLess Records reps SIX STAR GENERAL with THE BLOOD MOONS at the Black Watch Pub in New Bedford (508.997.0023). We lost count of the DEER TICK sightings here in RI this year, and this weekend MacCauley and Co. head to the Newport Blues Cafe (401.846.5510) on Friday and Saturday (doors at 8 pm) and are likely to sell out in advance; tix are $15 each (hearing "Piece by Piece and Frame by Frame" live is worth the $8 bridge toll), call for availability.

Looking ahead, let Chip and Lee decimate your midweek blues when acclaimed PVD duo THE BODY headline at AS220 with guests HIGH AURA'D and BARN OWL on WEDNESDAY (the 17th), all for only $6 at the door. And next THURSDAY (the 18th), Cutler and the TINY STRING BAND will perform at the Greenwich Hotel on Main Street in E.G; 21+ and no cover, call 401.884.4200.
