Blues in abundance tonight (the 23rd) with the TIM TAYLOR BAND taking the stage at the Greenwich Hotel’s weekly unplugged series (21+, no cover, 401.884.4200). Storied local bluesman PAUL GEREMIA nimbly wields the 12-string axe real good for free at Nick-a-Nee’s (401.861.7290). And harmonica maestro JAMES MONTGOMERY has his crew in tow at the Hi-Hat in Davol Square (401.543.6500). Friday (the 24th) at Jake’s Bar & Grille delivers three local indie rock acts for only $5, with THE JESSE MINUTE and Pawtucket’s FASHION FAILURES opening for COMA COMA, who release a new record next week. Call 401.453.5253. Other Friday highlights include a potent rock show at the Living Room with West Warwick quintet THE NOISE CAMPAIGN and SHE RIDES (also releasing an album on the 28th) and New Bedford’s A WILHELM SCREAM headlining. Call 401.521.5200. And a well-spent $12 cover affords a night with YOUNG NEIL & THE VIPERS at Chan’s in Woonsocket. Call 401.765.1900. BADFISH join Godsmack, Sevendust, and 50 other bands as part of the ROCK THE INK FESTIVAL all weekend (24th through the 26th) at the revamped Dunk and the Rhode Island Convention Center.

On Saturday (the 25th): Maine-based jam veterans RUSTIC OVERTONES at Jerky’s (401.621.2244), Ohio’s TWO COW GARAGE at Jake’s, and nine-piece powerhouse BRASS ATTACK hits the Hi-Hat at 9:30 pm. Head to the Living Room on Sunday (the 26th) to catch ska-infused locals THE NICE UPS, Boston’s EVERYBODY OUT!, and Cali-based quintet THE AGGROLITES ($12). And on Wednesday (the 29th), roots-rock outfit SKINNY MILLIONAIRES (I implore you, seek out the track “Rare Bird”) take the stage at the Newport Blues Café. Call 401.841.5510.
