Catch these musical fireworks
Last call for THE DOWN & OUTS, THIS IS A MOVEMENT, and the return of COMA COMA to the Met on THURSDAY (the 30th), where the East Bay trio snagged both Best Local Act and Best Album honors at our Music Poll party a few weeks back; and head back to the Met FRIDAY (the 1st) for a great triple dip with JOE FLETCHER & THE WRONG REASONS, TALLAHASSEE (pick up Jealous Hands now), and LAST GOOD TOOTH — hands down the best $8 you'll spend all weekend; call 401.729.1005 for info on both shows. A busy Friday also includes A TROOP OF ECHOES, GLORIFIER, THE SUITE UNRAVELING, and LAFIDKI at AS220 (401.831.9327); and Billy Goode's (with help from 75orLess Records) will provide ear-rattling shelter from the throngs of tourist zombies wandering Newport this weekend — on Friday catch BROADCASTER (BMP '11 Breakthrough Act champs) and Coma Coma (401.848.5013), followed by a hometown throwdown with THE DIEPODS on SATURDAY (the 2nd; 401.848.5013). On SUNDAY (the 3rd), turn the dial to 1320 WARL-AM while chillaxing grillside and enjoy the local flavor of THE TONY JONES SHOW from 4 to 6 pm (airing the first Sunday of each month). Ahead to WEDNESDAY (the 6th), catch KRISTI MARTEL (readying her fourth album, Sacred Whore) at AS220 with FALL AND BOUNCE, SOUND OVER SEA, and more; and next THURSDAY (the 7th), kick back at Temple (inside the Renaissance Hotel, 401.919.5050) with ALLYSEN CALLERY, who just released an acoustic EP titled Winter Island.
