By CHRIS CONTI  |  August 28, 2013
On THURSDAY (the 29th), it’s last call for the ’Mericans headlining at the Burnside Park music series (free and all ages); then head over to the Parlour (401.383.5858) for another freebie (21+ though) starring King Sickabilly, Keith McCurdy (Vudu Sister), Bill Keough (Galvanize), Cousin Tommy, and Doug Trasher. On FRIDAY (the 30th), Dusk welcomes home Lolita Black, fresh off a successful two-week West Coast tour. Olneyville Sound System, Kintaan, and Randy Mississippi Whiskey round out the bill (401.714.0444). The Met delivers top-shelf local talent all weekend, with Hope Anchor headlining on Friday with very special guests Benny Sizzler and Neutral Nation ($8), and get back there on SATURDAY (the 31st) for the Mallett Brothers Band, The Silks, and the Denver Boot ($10). Both shows are all ages; dial 401.729.1005 for info on both gigs. Also on Saturday, DJ Dox Ellis spins at Local 121 (free, 401.274.2121), The Senders hit the Narragansett Café (401.423.2150), Steve Smith & the Nakeds are at the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740), and the Tim Taylor Blues Band returns to Nick-a-Nee’s (401.861.7290). The holiday weekend means extended partying hours, so stay out late with Philly’s DJ Drama, spinning at Fête all night long (21+, $20 at the door, 401.383.1113). On WEDNESDAY (the 4th), WBRU presents a killer low-dough show featuring The Dear Hunter accompanied by a string quartet (one of only 10 shows); tix are just $9.95 in advance.
