Freaky Friday

Block Party Mania and more!

Head to the Jewelry District on FRIDAY (the 20th) for an early evening block party with N'awlins fave KERMIT RUFFINS and locals ROUTE .44 at the Spot Underground, followed by a raucous nighttime lineup including ANGRY FARMER and SASQUATCH & THE SICK-A-BILLYS; call 401.383.7133 for details on both shows. Singer/songwriter STEVE ALLAIN also has a new CD, and plays Local 121 with very special opening guests BECKY CHACE and SUGAR HONEY ICED TEA ($6, 401.274.2121). And for our hip-hop heads, join CHACHI CARVALHO for "Beats, Rhymes and Life" at the Roots Café for a night of reggae, soul, and rap acts from Boston and RI, call 401.272.7422. And the Apartment (ex-Jake's, 401.228.7222) has stepped up as a terrific live venue, as 75orLess Records friends SIX STAR GENERAL and HOPE ANCHOR return on Friday, playing a 21+ freebie with BAD ART (ex-members of Big Tall Buildings) opening. Six Star and high-octane labelmates THE JESSE MINUTE head south on SATURDAY (the 21st) for a wild bill at Blaze's Billiards in West Warwick, also featuring CAVES, THE UNIBROWS (21+, $5 at the door, 401.615.7677. And if you're Boston-bound on Saturday, stop by First Parish Cambridge Church for JOCIE ADAMS of the Low Anthem; her recent solo debut Bed of Notions is stellar, call 617.876.7772 for details. And a heads-up for next THURSDAY (the 26th) when crust-punk legends DROPDEAD play AS220 with DOOM — a likely sell-out, so get tix in advance.
