Throwing it down

By CHRIS CONTI  |  July 24, 2013

“This event definitely is a major undertaking that has been pulled off very few times here in Providence, but if anyone can do it it’s Ricky and the good people at Dusk,” said Otis.

“They continue to be steadfast supporters of local and heavy music, and are bringing great bands to this city on a weekly basis. Dusk is one of my absolute favorite places to play and support!”

The logistical headaches have not scared off Sunderland, who already has his sights set on future festivals to be held at Dusk.

“The intention is to present many more events involving all genres of music.”

Taking into account the number of excellent hip-hop shows I have caught at Dusk, the idea of a Rhody-based rap fest sounds like a surefire winner. It is clear that the Dusk team is devoted to our music community.

“I have been working in bars for 29 years now and I love what I’m doing,” Sunderland said. “And I am so proud that we are considered a great place to hang out and see a show.”
