Hot August nights

And Some afternoon fun!

Have you experienced THE BROTHER KITE onstage yet? Make a point to hit up Local 121 (401.274.2121) on FRIDAY (the 17th), as we're impatiently awaiting TBK's next album; THE DAREDEVIL CHRISTOPHER WRIGHT and JUNIOR BEAT open the show. A nice freebie goes down at Nick-a-Nee's with the BECKY CHACE BAND rocking out all night; dial 401.861.7290 for details. And shoegazer fans should stop by Dusk (401.714.0444) for Nova Scotia trio KESTRELS. Start your SATURDAY (the 18th) at Lippitt Memorial Park (off Hope St.) for the SUMMIT MUSIC FEST (1-5 pm) featuring the STOOGES BRASS BAND, as well as PVD greats MOGA, SMITH & WEEDEN, and THE MIGHTY GOOD BOYS. Saturday highlights also include ROOMFUL OF BLUES and EIGHT TO THE BAR at the Ocean Mist in Matunuck (401.782.3740); FUNKATRONIC join CHARGE THE ATLANTIC and THOSE ALONE at the Apartment (401.228.7222); and welcome back indie kids STARTING OVER TUESDAY, playing a reunion gig at the Met with guest openers EISENFORT and THIS IS A MOVEMENT (all-ages, $10 cover). On SUNDAY (the 19th), chill out at the Narragansett Café with the TIM TAYLOR BLUES BAND starting at 4 pm (401.423.2150), then head to Pawtucket for TAPESTRIES, THE DEVIL AND A PENNY, and WILLOW (featuring ex-members of Big Tall Buildings) at the News Café (401.728.6475). On MONDAY (the 20th), kick back at the Apartment with singer/songwriter BRIAN McKENZIE (of Kilgore fame), or get your face melted at the Met when LOLITA BLACK (pick up Flesh, Blood, and Bone ASAP) headlines with guests LITTLE FOOT, NOVUS 2, and WAY OUT ($8 at the door, 401.729.1005). See you there. Local 121's Speakeasy is the place to be on WEDNESDAY (the 22nd) for NORTHERN LANDS (one of PVD's finest) with TWO LIGHTS and CHRIS ROSENQUEST (Tower & the Fool). And next THURSDAY (the 23rd), Dusk once again ramps up the headbanger action with RAZORMAZE, LUNGLUST, THRONEHUNTER, and BLACK OIL INCINERATOR; 21+ and just $5 at the door.
