Try some genre-juggling this weekend
It's rockabilly family fun in Coventry on FRIDAY (the 3rd) with TONY JONES & THE CRETIN 3, THE EGOS, and THE HEADCUTTERS playing the PNA Lodge from 5-11 pm with a pasta dinner and raffles, and bring a toy for Toys for Tots; click cretinradio.com for full details. Also on Friday, the new Stage Door Lounge in Cranston (next to the Park Theatre, 401.467.7275) hosts local rock 'n' blues vets BLACK & WHITE, while blues guitar hero PAUL GEREMIA plays the Narrows in Fall River (508.324.1926). And we anticipate a packed house for TED LEO & THE PHARMACISTS at the Met with Bear Hands and locals Atlantic Thrills; tix are $15 in advance, call 401.729.1005. A pair of heavyweight shows downtown on SATURDAY (the 4th)— the revitalized KANERKO (their new stuff is sounding beastly) revisit the Ruins inside the Colosseum (401.497.4200) with PISTOL SHOT GYPSY, WOLFBANE, and NAME IN VAIN, while at the 201 (401.454.4581) 75 or Less Records strikes again with a CD release bash for THE DOLL EYES, along with THE BLOOD MOONS, SIX STAR GENERAL (set to release their new record, Six, this month), and THE UNCOMFORTABLES, all for only $5 at the door. Or kick back at Brooklyn Coffee & Tea House with the RI SONGWRITERS ASSOCIATION (RISA), hosting music workshops and live performances (401.575.2284). And on WEDNESDAY (the 8th), catch a hot dose of female-fronted power-pop at the Met with PVD's SEXCOFFEE and NYC's ME TALK PRETTY (8 pm, $10).
