AmyB checks in where where you need to be tonight, after the jump:
Where you’re more likely to see us tonight will be at Sticky Fingerz with New Orleans-based Drums and Tuba. They have, well, drums and a tuba, some vocals and a weird, looping track machine that adds layers of sound. You would probably enjoy them best sitting down and spacing; more of an experience than a show. If this makes any sense: they have an almost 4-Dimensional, “Twilight Zone,” sound. Recommended for a Wednesday romp. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5.
If it were up to me, we’d have blues somewhere every night in this town. The usual Wednesday night blues jam at Rock City is not happening tonight but you can go to Cajun’s Wharf and check out the Mo Brothers. They have a studied, “Hot Tuna” way of playing. No, they don’t sound like Hot Tuna, but they have obviously listened to a lot of them. Some good stuff, really. They’ll be on tonight at 8:30 p.m. Admission is $5.
We know there’s some sick things in Rhode Island -- we’ve vacationed in Providence before (don’t ask) -- however, the Body (with former members of Hundred Years War) are touting themselves as Rhode Island’s sickest. See how nauseous you get tonight at Downtown Music. Admission is $5. Also appearing are Bonedust, BLKWLK and Lafcadio. It starts off at 9 p.m. If you’re in Conway: Check out the musician’s showcase tonight at Soundstage with Cephus and Pulling Thorns. All ages; $5; 8:30 p.m.
Ha, ha, ha. The Loony Bin Comedy Club will have comedian Kenny Smith starting tonight through Saturday. On the Loony Bin's web site: “Kenny says, 'I'll meet you in the parking lot,' as he brings his everyday stories to life with clever energy and animated expressions.” Hmmm ... the show starts tonight at 8 p.m. It’s $6 for 18 and up.
He’s being promoted and lavished on by mainstream media as the next Donny Osmond/Shaun Cassidy, he has more guitar skills than either one of those two. Hey, take your teenage nieces and live vicariously through them; we won’t tell the cool kids: Dirtie Blonde, a new acoustic rock group led by Aimie Miriello, will open at 8 p.m. Admission is $12 for all ages.
