Jam-packed bills all week long!
Last call for a couple good shows going down THURSDAY (the 21st): Brother Moon, Far Off Place, Ants In the Cellar, and Mother Dylan hit the Met (all ages, 401.729.1005), while the Parlour (401.383.5858) continues its monthly showcase of solo sets with Matt Willis (Nashville) and locals John Booth and Tyler James (the Silks) for just $3 at the door. Nick-a-Nee’s is the place to be on FRIDAY (the 22nd) for The Schemers’ reunion show and food drive benefit; no cover charge, but bring a non-perishable item for the cause. Also on Friday, stop by Fatt Squirrel down the street for a wild burlesque variety show with music from Von Donovan and many more; dial 401.808.6898 for details. Warren-based imprint 75orLess Records serves up two great shows on SATURDAY (the 23rd): stop by the Roger Williams National Memorial and kick back with Allysen Callery and Bob Kendall (7 pm, free); then get down to Defenders Cup in Bristol for an animal shelter benefit featuring Vertical Twin, Six Star General, and Coma Coma ($10 donation). Visit the Knickerbocker Cafe on SUNDAY (the 24th) for an all-ages alt-rock show with Brother Ghost, No Recall, and Dancing With Discord ($5, 401.315.5070). More 75orLess action arrives on TUESDAY (the 26th) when Deadlands play the Met with Ground State Automatic and Nine Men’s Misery (all ages, $8).
Mark you calendar now for the next installment of The Midday Social, to be held on THURSDAY (the 28th) at Platforms in Providence. The Social is hosted by Midday Records co-founder (and Satellites Fall guitarist) Davey Moore, hands down one of the most devoted contributors to the local music scene. The quarterly networking event corrals media and booking reps, an industry panel of speakers, and aspiring and established musicians from around New England. Bring copies of your recorded tunes and mingle. The Midday Social is all ages and free of charge. Cheers, Davey!
