Check out the bill that Midday Records has lined up on FRIDAY (the 18th) at Mardi Gras: The Morgana Phase, Skinny Millionaires, The Brother Kite, and The Sweet Release (21+. 401.463.3080). And down south at the Narragansett Café catch the Becky Chace Band (21+, no cover, 401.423.2150 for details. SATURDAY (the 19th) is Record Store Day! What Cheer Records & Vintage (401.861.4244) has a trio of in-store performances kicking off at 3:30 pm with Cotton Candy, the Brother Kite, and Arc Iris (led by former Low Anthem member Jocie Adams); you can also catch The Silks in action at Newbury Comics in Warwick around 3 pm. Two great shows on Saturday evening: Dusk (401.714.0444) presents Allysen Callery, Us n Y’All, and Haunt the House supporting grimy blues duo Detroit Rebellion, while Simon’s 677 (401.270.6144) hosts Torn Shorts, 2014 Rock Hunt finalists Jetty, and Swan Point. Happy Easter SUNDAY (the 20th)! On 420 no less! What better way to usher in the Resurrection and reefer madness than with Baylies Band (20th anniversary show), Guerilla Toss, and the mighty Six Star General opening for Macauley Culkin’s Pizza Underground. Oh Jesus. The show is all ages and $12 at the door. Ahead to WEDNESDAY (the 23rd), local music journalist Rob Duguay kicks off a two-day birthday bash (proceeds too benefit the Trudeau Center’s music program) with Tapestries, 24 Hours, The YaBeautifuls, and 14 Foot 1 (featuring drummer Casey Belisle from the Rice Cakes) at Dusk; then head to Fête on THURSDAY (the 24th) for Northeast Traffic, Wild Sun, PALS, Vulgarrity, and the Seekonk School of Rock house band.
