Lotsa variety on tap on FRIDAY (the 30th): a nice bill at Speakeasy at Local 121 (8 pm, 401.274.2121) with THE SUGAR HONEY ICED TEA, JOCIE ADAMS (of the Low Anthem) and WASH HOLLOW; Fête hosts TALLAHASSEE with MADI DIAZ, KINGSLEY FLOOD, and one of the area's finest in THE TOWER & THE FOOL (401.383.1112); local Neil Young tributeers YOUNG RUST play a freebie at Mulhearn's in East Provy (401.438.9292); the Met hosts a WBRU "Exposure" show with POLIÇA, ZULU WINTER, and badass locals PANTHER MODERNS; and don't forget REVEREND BASTIEN headlining at the News Café (all-ages and $5 at the door, call 401.728.6475). A big weekend at the Spot Underground kicks off Friday with the BERNIE WORRELL ORCHESTRA along with excellent local support from ROUTE .44 and FALL & BOUNCE (a steal at only $10), followed by a return visit from jam-band kings FUNGUS AMUNGUS with guests SWIFT TECHNIQUE on SATURDAY (the 31st); call 401.383.7133 for details on both shows. Also on Saturday, Stone Soup Coffeehouse in Pawtucket (401.921.5115) presents singer-songwriter KATE TAYLOR (sister of James and Livingston) with Paul Pasch supporting, or get your Americana/bluegrass fix at Nick-a-Nee's with THE RANK STRANGERS and CHRIS MONTI free-of-charge (401.861.7290). Local Show of the Weekend goes down Saturday at Local 121's Speakeasy with a double-dose of local legends SCARCE, performing acoustic and full-blown sets. Nice. Call 401.274.2121 for details. And attention Wu-Tang fans —hot off the heels of the sold-out GZA show last week, Firehouse 13 just announced Wu-Tang's lyrical chef RAEKWON will perform April 18 with very special Rhody guests META P and the Chachi/Swann Notty dream-team collabo THR33 PIECE SUIT. Visit or call 401.270.1801 ASAP for tickets.
