Pete Depressed and the MEAT DEPRESSED punks are back after a lengthy hiatus. They’ll play Jerky’s on Friday in a tribute to the Pats. Check out their YouTube clip called “(Here We Go) PATRIOTS!” Also on the Jerky’s bill are the Ramones tribute band THE RAMONIACS and THE PROZACS. Call 401.621.2244. At AS220 this Friday it’s RISA’s fourth anniversary celebration of their “Songwriters In the Round” concerts and the release of the second set of recorded music from that series. RISA Round 3 Volume 2, recorded live at AS220, will be available any day now. Check the listings for the lengthy roster of all-stars kickin’ in a few songs that night.

The Providence Black Repertory Company, recently recovered from a caved-in roof and some serious stage and gear damage from an incident on 12/27, hosts JEAN AND LEE WILSON as part of the Neon Soul Cabaret on Saturday. Both artists will perform with the Neon Soul Collective at 10 pm at the Xxodus Café, 276 Westminster Street. Tickets ($10) can be purchased at the Black Rep box office starting at 9 pm the night of the show. Lee Wilson, the 24-year-old singer, songwriter, and performer from Boston, was called the “Top Unsigned Artist in America” by Vibe last year, so it should be quite a show: part rock, part soul.
