Forever Young Rocks The Free World At Narrows

Forever Young(3.9) Although technically not in Rhode Island – and you know how far 20 minutes outside Providence can feel to some – the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River is a perpetual Providence Phoenix Best Folk Venue nominee. And no wonder: you can bring your own food and drinks, the sound is great, they have baked goods and rotating artwork, and a few years ago they upgraded their bum-numbing seating. Local rootsy rockers The ‘Mericans have helped raise RI’s profile at the Narrows, first by bringing Brown Bird and Route .44 as an amazing triple bill, then headlining another Providence-area showcase featuring Tig & Bean and Allyson Callery, and most recently joining several local bands and artists in a Gram Parsons tribute at the Americana Music Festival.

Local Neil Young tribute band Forever Young is continuing the ‘Mericans’ work. This project, comprised of well-established RI musicians, singers and songwriters, has sold out several prior Narrows shows with their fantastic interpretations of Neil’s hits and rarities. Now they’ve been asked to host an entire weekend at the Narrows – so if you miss them tonight, you’ll have another shot tomorrow, but with different material. (Tickets are going fast, so you may want to call first.) It’s nice that a venue that attracts amazing national and international stars has room in their hearts and their building for Rhode Island’s great artists.

$18 in advance or $20 at the door or $30 both nights, Friday (3/8) and Saturday (3/9), 8pm showtime, 16 Anawam Street, Fall River.
