As much of this as you can!
A packed weekend of great local talent is on hand, most notably a slew of singer/songwriters at the SONGWRITERS IN THE ROUND 7TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY on FRIDAY (the 9th) at AS220, including JOHN FUZEK, MARK CUTLER, JACOB HALLER, and the welcome return of HEATHER ROSE; $10 at the door, call 401.831.9327. In East Provy, Mulhearn’s (401.438.9292) hosts Neil Young tribute specialists YOUNG RUST (featuring Mike Gendron) free of charge. Start your Friday at Club Hell (401.709.3923) for must-see siblings VULGARRITY with THE 91S, and the Providence debut of THE LIGHTS OUT (Boston). The show starts around 7 pm. A few blocks over, cult-status jam band FUNGUS AMUNGUS are joined by HARDIG RHODE, WHAT CHEER? BRIGADE, and the JOHNNY LINGO BAND at Lupo’s, followed by the WBRU ROCK HUNT finale on SATURDAY (the 10th), with YOU SCREAM I SCREAM, SANTA MAMBA, THE WANDAS, and KEEP ME CONSCIOUS squaring off. Call 401.331.5876 for info on both shows. Some waterfront action aplenty, as the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740) should be jumping with STEVE SMITH & THE NAKEDS with guest JOHN CAFFERTY, and if you are anywhere near Bristol on Saturday, head to the Common Pub (401.253.9801) for a fantastic freebie featuring THE JESSE MINUTE, VON DOOM, and COMA COMA headlining the stoner/punk triple-dip (21+, no cover, and 3/$1 cherry bombs all night).
