Here comes 1/1/11

Bring the noisemaker!!!

Here are a few more New Year's Eve options to drop into your itinerary for FRIDAY (the 31st): in Matunuck join FUNK NUGGET, SAUCE, and BOOMSLANG throwing down at the Ocean Mist (401.782.3740); in Pawtucket, MAX CREEK kick out the jams at the Met (401.729.1005); and if you're carousing through Downcity, stop by the 201 (one of the city's best live venues, 401.454.4581) and check out THE SILKS and BOO CITY; or stumble over to AS220 and get your frozen face melted by experi-instrumentalists A TROOP OF ECHOES, CELLAR DOVES, and CALIFORNIA SMILE leading the charge with new cuts from their forthcoming album Things Not Worth Saying; call 401.831.9327. And don't forget the DUKE ROBILLARD BAND performing at the Knickerbocker Cafe — the $50 cover includes a four-course pre-fixe dinner beginning at 6 pm (advance reservations required, 401.596.4225). Clear your head on SATURDAY (the 1st) with the RI SONGWRITERS' ASSOCIATION hosting their workshop and music night (the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month) at the Brooklyn Coffee & Tea House at 8 pm (401.575.2284). Two notable shows on tap on WEDNESDAY (the 5th) include a nice lineup at the Met with BRIAN MCKENZIE (CD release), JEFF BYRD & DIRTY FINCH, JAY BERNDT (pick up Sad Bastard Songs now!), and CHRIS FULLERTON, while local flavor at AS220 features singer/pianist KRISTI MARTEL, BIG BENNY B, THE AWESOME SOMETHING, and Cumberland's FULL VOID.
