Forward, March
By CHRIS CONTI  |  February 27, 2013

Last call for a double-stacked THURSDAY (the 28th), with SHE RIDES, BLOODPHEASANT, and PARTY PIGS tearing up Local 121 (401.274.2121) while go-to hotspot Dusk hosts another killer combo led by Newport's SKINNY MILLIONAIRES, DETROIT REBELLION (debut disc on the way), and US 'N' Y'ALL; just $4 at the door, call 401.714.0444. Ahead to a variety-filled FRIDAY (the 1st): Billy Goode's in Newport (401.848.5013) presents MEDS (75orLess Records) with THE LOUD ONES, VICIOUS CIRCLE, and THE F.U.S; hit AS220 for OBUAMAH LAUD ADDY and the AS220 CRISS CROSS ORCHESTRA ($6, 401.831.9327); and the Met delivers Golden Era rap greats ED O.G. and Juice Crew alum CRAIG G; all-ages and $15 day of show, dial 401.729.1005 for more. On SATURDAY (the 2nd), the Spot Underground (401.383.7133) will be jumping all night courtesy of the world-famous REBIRTH BRASS BAND and our supremely badass EXTRAORDINARY RENDITION BAND! $25 at the door and a guaranteed sell-out. Start off your SUNDAY (the 3rd) at Firehouse 13 (401.270.1801) for another 4 pm hardcore matinee, with five bands for just five bucks, including ANTI VENOM, OLD WOUNDS, and locals BARBER COP. Then head over to the Parlour and catch SAMANTHA CRAIN, along with quality Providence acts BARN BURNING and DANIEL CHASE; 21+ and $8 at the door, call 401.383.5858. On TUESDAY (the 5th), there are a slew of local rappers opening up for the mighty (and forever underrated) Masta Killa of Wu-Tang Clan fame at the PVD Social Club ($15 at the door, 401.454.7177). And take your pick next THURSDAY (the 7th): MATH THE BAND will headline at Dusk with BEARSTRONAUT and many more ($7), TORN SHORTS and GILL MOSS support CACTUS ATTACK at the Met; and the revamped Columbus Theatre presents CHRIS TRAPPER (formerly of '90s alt band the Push Stars) with the soulful YOUNG PANDAS opening.
