Speaking of Chris Daltry & Co., the 'Mericans also play on FRIDAY (the 5th) on the Knight Memorial Library lawn, starting around 6:30 pm and free of charge (401.467.2700). Should be a wild one at the Met SATURDAY (the 6th) when KOOL KEITH takes the stage with local guests B. DOLAN (holy shit) and DIRTYDURDIE opening (pick up their Rhymanese Diner mixtape now). Other Saturday action includes TWO GUYS AND ANOTHER GUY hitting the Ocean Mist in Matunuck (401.782.3740), SIX STAR GENERAL headline at Local 121's Speakeasy (401.274.2121), and the Apartment hosts crunchy NJ rockers DEAD FISH HANDSHAKE; 21+ and no cover (and a great brew selection), call 401.228.7222. Rise and shine on SUNDAY (the 7th) with the ROCK & ROLL HALF MARATHON, featuring big local names like SANTA MAMBA, THE BENEDICTIONS, ROUTE .44, and THE RUDENESS rocking out along the race route, with Mike Maven kicking it off at 8:15 am at the Station Park main stage. Free admission and open to the public. Oh, and Sugar Ray headlines around 9:30 am! On TUESDAY (the 9th), check out M.O.T.O, THE MIDNIGHT CREEPS, and more at Firehouse 13 (401.270.1801); or catch BAYLIES BAND, the Best Category-Defying Act in our recent music poll, with VAMPIRE BELT, MIKE MOUNTAIN, AND LEE HARVEY OSWALD MAKEOUT PARTY (members of The Viennagram) at Gallery X in New Bedford (all-ages, $6 at the door, 508.992.2675).
