4.20 @ the Firehouse

Plus, plenty of BMP noms

Benefit gigs worth seeking include an early-bird THURSDAY (the 14th) at Firehouse 13 (doors at 5 pm, 401.270.1801) with (multiple) BMP nominees TOWER & THE FOOL (ex-members of Hot Rod CIrcuit and Therefore I Am), and the Met bookends a busy week starting with the LIFEcycle benefit with SANTA MAMBA and ERIC FRENCH on Thursday evening. Speaking of BMP noms, catch local singer/songwriter HEATHER ROSE at Local 121 (401.274.2121) on FRIDAY (the 15th), or head south for funk/jam pros GRAVITY WORKS at the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740), and COMA COMA headline at the Apartment (21+ and no cover, 401.228.7222) with DANIEL CHASE and VIKING JESUS, while JOE FLETCHER & THE WRONG REASONS return to The 201 downtown, call 401.454.4581 for details. If Aquidneck-bound on SATURDAY (the 16th) and fiending for some dance floor grinding, get to the Newport Blues Cafe for the WORLD PREMIERE BAND; $10 cover, call 401.841.5510. On WEDNESDAY (the 20th), local rap icons like CHACHI, JAHPAN, and many more celebrate 4.20 at Firehouse 13, and don't forget the Providence Phoenix hosting Steve Smith & the Nakeds, Felix Brown, and 5 Flavor Discount at the Met free of charge as part of our Best party; festivities jump off at 7 pm sharp. And next THURSDAY (the 21st), you best get back to the Met early for KODIAK ATTACK and local beasts SHE RIDES (making their whack from a SXSW trek) opening for BAYSIDE, and Music Poll nominee DJ STERBYROCK continues his classic/indie hip-hop residency at the Apartment every Thursday; 21+ and no cover all night, call 401.228.7222.
