Off the Couch
Three weeks of Xmas shopping to go, so get out and catch a freebie on THURSDAY (the 3rd) when LYIN’ BITCH & THE RESTRAINING ORDERS hit Nick-a-Nee’s (401.861.7290) with no cover all night. FRIDAY (the 4th) highlights include EEK-A-MOUSE at the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740), Neil Young tribute FOREVER YOUNG (with local icons Mark Cutler, Becky Chace, and Dan Lilley amongst the all-stars) playing two sets at Chan’s, and performing After the Goldrush in its entirety, call 401.765.1900. A week-long run of the acclaimed rockumenatry UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US kicks off at the Cable Car Cinema, a seriously in-depth look into the world of Norwegian Black Metal, “a music scene that blazed a path of murder and arson across the Northern sky.” Call 401.272.3970 for show-times. There’s an early-bird dual CD release party at Club Hell SATURDAY (the 5th) for THE INTEL and SLEEP CITY NIGHTS, with TOO LATE THE HERO, ANOTHER OPTION, and Kingston’s AMAREUS opening; doors at 6 pm, $12 day of show. MARK CUTLER and MIKE GENDRON cap off the RISA season finale at Brooklyn Coffee & Tea House with CT singer LARA HERSCOVITCH (401.575.2284), and the Blackstone does it again with a pair of noteworthy weekend shows: on Friday catch FOR THE LOVE OF SLOANE, Boston’s THE ALIBI DISTRICT, and must-see sibling rockers VULGARRITY take the stage; on Saturday, SEXCOFFEE open for a one-night JIM JAMES BAND reunion, a steal at only $7; call 401.726.2181 for info on both shows. On SUNDAY (the 6th), EDDIE MONEY and EDDIE MUNSTER team up for a charity gig at the Newport Blues Cafe. Butch Patrick hosts the party with the Moneyman backed by all-star members of Badfinger and Trans-Siberian Or-chestra, call 401.841.5510 for the full scoop. AS220 (401.831.9327) delivers a midweek bash headlined by Strange Famous Records’ resident punks PRAYERS FOR ATHEISTS on WEDNESDAY (the 9th) along with a stacked lineup featuring ROZ RASKIN & THE RICE CAKES, NY rap duo METERMAIDS, and Lincoln-based alt-rockers STALEMATE. PFA is mapping out another nationwide tour be-hind their acclaimed eponymous debut; their sold-out CD release show at AS220 a few months back was bananas. All-ages and only $7 at the door. TJI: Mark December 11 on your calendar for an inti-mate gig at Kay Studios in East Providence with a big-time blues combo of the JAMES MONTGOMERY BAND with JAY GEILS. Visit ASAP — this one is sure to sell out.
