The contenders

A Wild Ride
PRIMAL FURY Mustache Ride will celebrate at Jake's.The Torrey brothers, Emerson (vocals/guitar) and Nathan (drums), sons of Dino Club/ Schemers principal Emerson Torrey, and their mates Eric Sampson (bass) and Tripp McCreery, (guitar), celebrate the release of MUSTACHERIDE’s debut album, 20,000 Leagues Under the Scene, at Jake’s on Saturday. The Prozacs and Swaggerin Growlers are also on the bill. Fine pedigree aside, MR’s sound combines the primal fury of the Clash with punk sounds of a more modern stripe. They’ll be hitting the road in May, with stops in big East Coast burgs, plus outposts in the Great Lakes and Colorado.

Northeast indie showcase
At AS220 on Sunday at 9 pm, you can hear four acts that record for the Northeast Indie imprint out of Portland, Maine — Alec Redfearn, Micah Blue Smaldone, Alex Lukashevsky, and Fence Kitchen, whose album Beading the Rook will be released Tuesday. Northeast Indie plans to release Redfearn’s new album, The Smother Party, real soon.

Wandering eye
On Friday at Jake’s, the Wyld Card DJs welcome guest DJ Hoss Funk (aka Bill Machon) spinning ’70s Afro-funk, Afrobeat, and more. On Saturday you can catch Paul Geremia and the Killdevils at 7 pm at the Mediator on Rounds Ave in Providence. At Cats on Saturday, it’s a 21-plus show with Candy Striper Death Orgy, Godless Rising (ex-Vital Remains), Crotalus, and Inner Self Lost. The Lori Urso-Marty Richards Blues Band, accompanied by Marty Ballou and Mike Dinallo, play Neath’s on Saturday. Jungle Dogs, Suicide Liquors, and Six Star General play Area Venue in Newport on Saturday. Dave Howard and the High Rollers also play on Saturday at a place called the Woodland Meeting House in Foster. The venue, a brothel in a former life, is new to the scene, and owner Lisa Mills has big ideas for the place.

Becky Chace, Corinne Wahlberg, and Lisa Martin will join Ryan Fitzsimmons for this month’s “Songwriters In the Round” on Sunday at AS220 . Admission is $5 and the theme is “Immortal.” Greg Hodde will do some axe-slinging as usual this week — first on Saturday at the Ancient Mariner in Foxboro, Massachusetts, and next Thursday (the 16th) at 3rd Base in East Providence.
