Summer times

Off the Couch

First off, a huge THANK YOU goes out to all the bands and fans who attended our inaugural Best Music Poll Awards Show last week, and congrats to all the winners (and a shoutout to those boneless buffalo tenders from Wings Over Providence). Damn right we’ll do it again next year.

And speaking of BMP victors, last call for punk champs THE JESSE MINUTE at Firehouse 13 on THURSDAY (the 17th) before they embark on a Midwest tour. NINJESSA, TIMESUP!, and ‘09 BMP winner HANK SINATRA JR. open; all ages and $7 at the door (401.270.1801). STARTING OVER TUESDAY and THE COMING WEAK (pick up TCW’s latest, Are We All Letting Go) are among the five opening bands for Boston pop-core act Vanna at Lupo’s (401.272.5876) on FRIDAY (the 18th); $15 at the door, music starts at 8 pm sharp. Also on Friday, BMP Best Male Vocalist MARK CUTLER (his new album Red = a great Dad’s Day gift), leads the TINY STRING BAND to the Greenwich Hotel on Main Street; always 21+ and never a cover, call 401.884.4200. On SATURDAY (the 19th) Tommy’s Place downtown presents a memorial fundraiser ($5 at the door) with alt-rock locals BAYLOCK, INNOCENT UPRISING, and ARMY OF ROBOTS, call 401.272.4980 for more.
