On Friday, February 23, BLACK AND WHITE drummer Don DiMuccio celebrates 36 years behind the kit. No, that’s not right. He’s actually 36 and it just seems like he’s been playing for that long. At the South County Tavern in Exeter, his band will be joined by Dave Howard on vox and Mike Dinallo (who has been on this page a lot lately) strumming the ol’ guitar. Competing for your attention this weekend is another down-home act: the TIM TAYLOR BLUES BAND featuring Tom Ferraro, Marlie Wanseth, and Keith Munslow. Taylor just finished up lending his hand to Duke Robillard on his latest work, while Ferraro has been in the producer’s chair for the new album by Professor Harp. On Friday, the band plays the News Café in Pawtucket with an 8:30 pm start (401.728.6475), and on Saturday, February 24, they’re at the Narragansett Café in Jamestown with a 9 pm kickoff (401.423.2150). The band is beginning to do the heavy lifting in the blues around these parts and crowds are building as a result. Get there early.
At AS220 on Saturday: MONOTONIX will be a long way from home. They’ve come from Tel Aviv to ply their garage-freakout rock. TINY HAWKS headline, Chip from ear-bleeding behemoths the Body dons his side project hat with SIEGE ENGINE, and big noize trio HOWL opens. Call 401.831.9327. On the much quieter side, RYAN FITZSIMMONS and HEATHER ROSE share the bill at Stone Soup on Saturday at 8 pm. Tickets are $12. Call 401.457.7147.
Local rockers ALICE play on Sunday, February 25 at the Living Room with STEALING JANE, MY LITTLE RADIO, THE PROPOSAL, FOREDOES ME QUITE (melodic metalists with a new EP pending), and Worcester punks FOUR YEAR STRONG. Alice, featuring Yeugene Barokha (vocals), Jeff Brown (guitar), Tom Harrington (guitar), Frank Snyder (bass), and Bob Phillips (drums), has been together for a year and is currently finishing up an EP titled Chasing Bliss. Call 401.521.5200.
