Off the Couch

Apologies regarding the incorrect/premature show listings for the 201 last week; the double-header begins THURSDAY (the 11th), when ARCING (featuring ex-Sweetthieves bassist Hilary Jones) joins TINSEL TEETH and the CHINESE STARS, only $6 at the door, then head back to 201 Westminster Street for another beast of a show on FRIDAY (the 12th) featuring new speed-punks LIFERS (with Makeupbreakup frontman Mikey Lams on drums) and WHITE LOAD opening for HOLLOWS and SHE RIDES; call 401.454.4581. Start the evening at the RISD Museum with the OCCIDENTAL GYPSY JAZZ QUARTET serving up "gypsy swing" as part of RISD's Music Friday series, held the second week of each month from 5:30 to 8 pm. It's 21+ with cash bar and refreshments, call 401.454.6322. Other notable Friday highlights include deafening stoner-rock at Billy Goode's (401.848.5013) in Newport with SIX STAR GENERAL (Take Your Teeth Out is their best yet) and THE DIEPODS, while at Chan's in Woonsocket, the JAMES MONTGOMERY BAND play two sets at 8 and 10 pm ($20 for both), call 401.765.1900. On SATURDAY (the 13th), Cat's in Pawtucket hosts hard-rock locals OCTOPUS TRIANGLE with A BLACK VICTORIA, SAINT TO SINNER, and HEMLOK (401.722.0150). Kick back on TUESDAY (the 16th) with acclaimed acoustic singer/songwriter DANIEL CHASE at Sidebar (401.421.7200), and get Nick-a-Nee's on your St. Patty's pub crawl on WEDNESDAY (the 17th) for corned beef sandwiches and Guinness, with spirited Irish outfit CRAIC WAS MIGHTY entertaining the after-work crowd, followed by the SUPERCHIEF TRIO with Tom Ferraro. No cover and 21+, call 401.861.7290.
