The Manhattan project

By CHRIS CONTI  |  February 24, 2010

NO. 1 CONSPIRACY THEORY YOU DISAGREE WITH? I don't agree with people who say Glenn Beck is a former cocaine addict and a white supremacist. I believe strongly that Glenn Beck is a shape-shifting reptilian humanoid.

A ONE-SENTENCE OVERVIEW ON OBAMA'S ADMINISTRATION? Sometimes, being the smartest guy in the room isn't enough.

IS THERE HOPE FOR THE LOCAL ECONOMY? LEGALIZE AND TAX THE REEFER? That is not a bad idea at all. But if Rhode Islanders are still too puritanical for that, then at least build a goddamn casino. Build a weed casino, for chrissake. We could rebuild our schools off the buffet money alone.

RESTAURANT YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO HITTING UP WHEN IN TOWN? [Thai restaurant] Sawaddee on the East Side, but the only thing I really look forward to in Rhode Island is my bed. I try to hibernate as much as possible.

WHAT CAN ATTENDEES EXPECT AT JERKY'S? Expect utter mayhem. Sage will be hosting and performing, Alias will be on hand, and What Cheer? Brigade will perform and then join me onstage, which will most likely be the first and only time we perform "Border Crossing" together. Tickets are going fast. People are wearing costumes. Missing this show would be downright irresponsible.

B. DOLAN + ALIAS + WHAT CHEER? BRIGADE + SAGE FRANCIS | Saturday, February 27 @ 9 pm | Jerky's Bar & Grill, 71 Richmond St, Providence | 401.621.2244 |
