Also on Friday, hit the Apartment (401.228.7222) for a $3 triple-dip with CASTLE, TREESTAR, and a busy ABLE THOUGHT headlining, while VILLAINER and SHE RIDES team up at the Speakeasy at Local 121 —(call 401.274.2121).

On SUNDAY (the 18th — only six goddamn shopping days left!), kick back or step up with SWEET P.
