Stefan Couture said goodbye to his acclaimed acoustic and roots pop vehicle the Campfire Orchestra and is now touring with Chris Montecalvo on drums and percussion and bassist Tim Couture. We’ve always enjoyed Couture’s way with words, his breezy handle on substantive strumming, and the band’s high-energy show. See how his trio sounds at the Blackstone River Theatre on Friday, November 30. Admission is $10. Call 401.725.9272.
On Thursday, November 29, at the Living Room, STORM DAVIS AND POORLY DRAWN PEOPLE will be opening for the legendary Kool Keith, the hip-hop maniac responsible for Dr. Octagon and the Ultramagnetic MCs. Call 401.521.5200. BLIZZARD OF ’78 and VON DOOM join forces at Jake’s Bar and Grille on Saturday, December 1. It’s likely that Von Doom will be playing tracks from their upcoming CD, The Universe, though they aren’t calling this a CD release party just yet. Call 401.453.5253. On Saturday at the Living Room it’s another interesting hip-hop act, SYMMETRY, backed by Electrio. The show also features THE MILWAUKEES (NJ), CHANNEL ZERO (Providence), and DAVE WITHAM (ex-Of the Hour frontman playing solo acoustic). Tix are $10.
And now for something completely different. On Thursday, December 6, a new social org, DOO DO DAYS, is sponsoring a rockin’ version of “Name That Tune” upstairs at Wickford Gourmet at 7 pm. All styles of music will be presented, including punk and alt-rock, so dust off your vinyl and start brushing up. But even if the music stumps you, at least you can enjoy beverages (BYOB) and the café’s many tasty treats. Go to doodadays.net for more info.
