Beyond the turkey

Six Star, hip-hop at the Firehouse 13, and more

Break north on Black FRIDAY (the 26th) and work off the green bean casserole with the JAMES MONTGOMERY BAND, sure to heat up the dance floor at Chan's in Woonsocket (401.765.1900), click on for a special $18 two-fer deal that includes entry to both the 8 and 10 pm shows. At Club Hell (401.709.3923) STARTING OVER TUESDAY celebrate a CD release with THE SOPHOMORE BEAT and CHOWDAH supporting. Also on Friday, hop the bridge(s) to Newport and catch two of the best 75orLess Records has to offer — THE PROPELLERS and SIX STAR GENERAL — at Jimmy's Saloon (21+, call 401.846.5121).

Speaking of Six Star, Dan, Kyle, and Slick have been pulling out some impressive new jams on the live circuit lately, so a trip to AS220 on SATURDAY (the 27th) is highly recommended when SSG join labelmates THE JESSE MINUTE, plus OF EASTERN SHORES and THIS IS A MOVEMENT ($6 at the door, 401.831.9327). More Saturday highlights include a no-dough show at Stella Blues in Warren (401.289.0349) with acoustic locals HEATHER ROSE, NICKY P., and CHRIS ROSENQUEST. And don't forget the hip-hop lineup on tap at Firehouse 13 (401.270.1801) featuring LABELESS ILLTELLIGENCE, PDP's REASON, DIRTY HANK, and NEED NOT WORRY, $8 at the door and all-ages.

Another notable rap show ushers in December at the Met on WEDNESDAY (the 1st), featuring JON HOPE and BIG RUSH opening for Mac Miller, call 401.729.1005.
