Off the Couch: Dirtbags unite!

Wheatus at AS220
By CHRIS CONTI  |  July 31, 2013

Last call for The Silks appearing at Burnside Park (across from Kennedy Plaza) on THURSDAY (the 1st) starting around 5:30 pm, and free of charge! On FRIDAY (the 2nd), Fête’s lounge will be rocking with punk vets Neutral Nation, The Trans Fats, the diePods, and more ($10, 401.383.7133). The Met is the place to be for two great gigs this weekend: on Friday the Sugar Honey Iced Tea open for Smith & Weeden (all ages, $8); and rap cats will surely make tracks to the Bucket come SATURDAY (the 3rd) when Apathy returns with a fistful of quality locals, including Milez Grimez, Jahpan, and Big Rush (all ages, $14). Call 401.729.1005 for details on both shows. SUNDAY (the 4th) starts with a Dave Howard & the High Rollers reunion at the Narragansett Café (401.423.2150) around 4 pm (no cover, 401.423.2150), then roll with Psychedelic Clown Car at the Parlour (401.383.5858) at around 7 pm. On WEDNESDAY (the 7th), catch Tribal Seeds at Fête, or stop by Nick-a-Nee’s (401.861.7290) for the free Bluegrass Throedown series; Michelle Canning & Rough Edges is featured this week. AS220 hosts a wild one starring Wheatus (of “Teenage Dirtbag” fame) with an excellent opening bill, including Math the Band, Hank Sinatra Jr., and more. And next THURSDAY (the 8th), bookend your week back at Burnside Park and get your boogie on with Boo City; the beer garden starts pouring around 4:30 pm and the music starts at 5:30. Then mosey over to AS220 (401.831.9327) for Tapestries, Veil, Olde Pine, and Full of Birdy, all for just $5 at the door.
