Plus, Lolita Black returns to AS220
Sorry to report the Detroit Rebellion show at Chilango's slated for THURSDAY (the 7th) has been rescheduled for March 14, but fear not, for the Roots Café (401.272.7422) hosts THE CAN'T NOTS with VERTICAL TWIN and PVD newcomers LOCAL LIGHTS tonight, while FALL & BOUNCE, SEXCOFFEE, and NYMPHIDELS visit Firehouse 13 ($5, 401.270.1801). The Met (401.729.1005) presents a supremely badass lineup on FRIDAY (the 8th) with THE NEIGHBORHOODS, HOPE ANCHOR, and NEUTRAL NATION rocking out in the Bucket, while an equally badass trio throws down at Local 121 with PARTY PIGS, THEE ITCHIES, and RAVI SHAVI (new album is pretty darn excellent); 21+ and doors at 10 pm, call 401.274.2121. The ladies take the lead on SATURDAY (the 9th) as JESS POWERS and ERIC BLOOM have assembled an all-star Mardi Gras band, including ROZ RASKIN, CORY PESATURO, MISS WENSDAY, BOO CITY's TAI AWOLAJU, and many more for the Chanteuse Mardi Gras Ball. Tix are $10 and the party kicks off around 9 pm, dial 401.383.1112 for all the details. Or head over to AS220 and get your face melted for $6 courtesy of WORSE OFF ALIVE, DAVID CARRADINE, LOLITA BLACK (fuck yes), and RIFLE DIET (MN). And head back there SUNDAY (the 10th) for THE DOWN AND OUTS' tour kickoff party with BRUNT OF IT and more ($6); call 401.831.9327 for info on both gigs. Also on Sunday, make tracks to KC's Tap in Pawtucket for a stacked lineup featuring SWEET LOVE (pick up the debut Motor ASAP), SHE RIDES, CANNIBAL RAMBLERS, and THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN; 21+ and $7 at the door, call 401.722.0150. And whether attached or forever rolling solo, get to the Parlour next THURSDAY (the 14th) and join BOO CITY and THE SILKS for a "Sexxxy Time" Valentine's Day party; call 401.383.5858 for the steamy details.
