Heave wave

Let's get summer going

First off, a hearty THANK YOU to all who stopped by the Met for our 2012 Best Music Poll party; we had a blast and hope you did as well. And for those who didn't, you missed stellar sets from Torn Shorts, the Brother Kite, Six Star General, and plenty of overtime action from Juan Deuce & Falside, who fucking killed it as our headliners.

OK, now onto this week's lineup of live action, starting with a nice jamfest on FRIDAY (the 22nd) as FUNGUS AMUNGUS and COSMIC FACTORY return to the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740). On SATURDAY (the 23rd), SHE RIDES headlines at AS220 (401.831.9327) along with SINGLE MOTHERS (Canada), ALPHA OWL, and VAPO-RATS. Also on Saturday, Florida-based folk singer-songwriter GRANT PEEPLES brings his "LeftNeck" ("a tree-hugger that keeps a gun under the seat") to the Brooklyn Coffee & Teahouse (401.575.2284). On SUNDAY (the 24th), the weekly Legends Jam at the Met rolls on with dad/son combo of RON AND ERIC FRENCH (and special guests) kicking out some serious blues starting at 4 pm (no cover, 401.729.1005). Lotsa buzz for Turner Falls, MA country duo SMITH & WEEDEN, performing free-of-charge Sunday night at Local 121's Taproom (401.274.2121). Speaking of our peeps TORN SHORTS — here's your chance to catch Josh Grabert & Co. in action come Sunday at the Spot Underground, along with ABLE THOUGHT and PAPER LANTERN; call 401.383.7133 for details. On TUESDAY (the 26th), the General Assembly series continues at Fête (401.383.1112) with singer-songwriters EMILY JANE WHITE, SARA AZRIEL, and CHRIS ROSENQUEST of the Tower & the Fool. On WEDNESDAY (the 27th), head to the Met early and catch locals THE DOWN AND OUTS opening up for EMILY'S ARMY (it's Billie Jo Armstrong-approved!); and next THURSDAY (the 28th), HOPE ANCHOR hits KC's Tap in Pawtucket, call 401.722.0150 for the full scoop.
