Fête and Dusk are stepping it up

Class acts
While Providence clubs and live venues seem to come and go "in this economy" (RIP Club Hell and the 201), two band- and fan-friendly venues are stepping up as viable outlets focused on delivering a wide array of artists and musical styles, from heavy metal to sultry singer/songwriters.

Slip sliding away with Last One Out

The boys of summer
Damn you, Last One Out. Having revisited their early-'11 EP Double Whammy (free download at  lastoneout.bandcamp.com ), the breezy and bouncy alt/piano-pop hooks have once again thumbtacked themselves to my cortex.

The best local discs of '10

Mix it up
'Twas an incredible (and incredibly diverse) year for Rhody-based musical acts, and formulating a Top 10 of 2010 was no easy task as we plunged into the archives and dug up some of our favorite LPs from the past 12 months.
