Off the Couch: From Allysen to Apathy

And spend Thanksgiving Eve with Duke Robillard or the Mighty Good Boys
By CHRIS CONTI  |  November 20, 2013

There’s plenty more rocking out to be had following our 35th anniversary bash at Lupo’s on THURSDAY (the 21st): head over to little sister venue the Met and get down with Boo City, Ravi Shavi, and Deer Tick’s Ian O’Neil; all-ages and just $8 at the door, dial 401.729.1005 for details. On FRIDAY (the 22nd), Fête (401.383.1112) will host a wild one with Irish punk vets The Mahones, plus Neutral Nation, The Pubcrawlers, Scrapes, and Riki Rocksteady. Or catch Mark Cutler & Men of Great Courage at Nick-a-Nee’s (21+, 401.861.7290). Crazy variety on tap for your SATURDAY (the 23rd): Zach Deputy jams out at the Spot (18+, $18); AS220 (401.831.9327) hosts Bad Swimmers (album release), Little Big League, Darklands, and Bloodpheasant, while Allysen Callery and Haunt the House are featured at the Common Fence Point in Portsmouth (401.683.5085). On SUNDAY (the 24th) from 4-8 pm, the Ron French Band is the featured artist at the Met’s RI Legends Blues Jam (no cover). Fend off the impending Turkey Day coma with the Mighty Good Boys on WEDNESDAY (the 27th); the MGBs will be releasing the debut album, It Ain’t Easy, with support from the Sugar Honey Iced Tea, Junior Beat, and Dan Dodd. A busy Thanksgiving Eve also includes Duke Robillard at the Grange (401.831.0600); and rap fiends will be pleased to know that Apathy will make his Rhody return with a show at the Met (all ages, $14). Have a great Thanksgiving and take the Lions, Cowboys, and Steelers in the three-game teaser. And pass the green bean casserole!
