JUST GO The Can't Nots will be at Dusk on the 24th.
WEDNESDAY (the 24th) at 8 pm | Machines With Magnets, 400 Main St, Pawtucket | $5 | Le Bucket gets in on the action with a can't-miss lineup at MWM featuring Chris Rosenquest (formerly of the Tower & the Fool), Newport's Skinny Millionaires, the Can't Nots (if you dig the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, look up "Go" right now), and 2013 Rock Hunt champs Torn Shorts, who really know how to tear up a live stage.
THURSDAY (the 25th) at 8 pm | The Parlour, 1119 North Main St, Providence | $5 | This quintessential corner pub (formerly the Penalty Box) will pack 'em in for local duo Nymphidels (check out new EP A Band in Places), the whiskey-soaked folk and blues of the Denver Boot (William Moretti possesses one of the state's best voices), Shotgun, and one of my personal favorites, Northern Lands (any day now with that full-length record, Mr. Cournoyer!). I just pray NL guitarist Pete Hayden leaves the tie-dye shirt at home for this one.
FRIDAY (the 26th) at 9 pm | AS220, 115 Empire St, Providence | $5 | Time to rock-the-fuck-out with the ladies of Gertrude Atherton (Sleater-Kinney for the stoned masses), Songs, the two-man wrecking crew that is Olneyville Sound System, and thrash-metal kings Weak Teeth.
SATURDAY (the 27th) at 7 pm | Firehouse 13, 41 Central St, Providence | $5 | The Artistic Explosion Music Festival wraps up at FH13 with an astounding array of styles — from the alt-pop of Huge Face (check out the new self-titled EP), Littlefoot (featuring Roz Raskin on bass), soulful folk crew Consuelo's Revenge (new album released last week), Tapestries, the infamous shlock-and-awe collective known as [The Viennagram:], and that aforementioned "Super Secret Special Guest.
