Rock & Reel Registration Still Open

10PM ON 22/04/2014
BY Daily Dose

rock & reel Rock & Reel is a grassroots arts project that pairs independent filmmakers with local bands and challenges them to make a music video in just three days — you still have time to enter.

On Friday, May 2nd, bands provide three songs and film teams randomly pick a band, a song and then 72 hours of music video making begins. On Monday, May 5th teams turn in their finished films.

All films will be screened at the Rock & Reel Awards concert at Fête Music on Saturday, May 17th. According to the registration page,

Regular registration continues until the day before the “kick-off” event. If there are more musical entrants than filmmakers, “extra” musical acts will be fully refunded for their entry fees and receive a free ticket to the closing concert.

Happy Record Store Day

BY Daily Dose

olympic records (4.19) We’ve already discussed the live music on tap at What Cheer Records (see below) but why not do the Grand Tour. Check out Olympic Records on Wickenden Street (between Ives and Gano) where Kevin promises huge sales as well as the special RSD releases. Olympic has been open for three years now and also features two pinball machines.

Go to the Record Store Day website for the list of special releases.

Further up Wickenden is Round Again Records which has been selling used records at that location since 1979 and has a pretty sizable CD section as well.

Armageddon Shop up on Broadway carries new and used records, CD’s, shirts, etc. with a good selection of hard-to-find underground music — noise, industrial, hardcore, punk, and experimental.

Typewriter Orchestra At RISD

8AM ON 15/04/2014
BY Beth Comery

BTO (4.17) Fans awaiting a recent Purple Ivy Shadows reunion performance noticed that a typewriter on a small table was waiting onstage along with the other instruments. The band members took the stage and started their prep when typist/percussionist Jeff Breeze turned to the band and asked “Can I have an ‘A’?” Much groaning. Breeze joined in on one song. (Video after the jump. He’s the one on the right . . . wearing the tie.)

Jeff Breeze is a member of the Boston Typewriter Orchestra,

. . . a collective endeavor which engages in rhythmic typewriter manipulation combined with elements of performance, comedy and satire. BTO aims to entertain the masses while providing an outlet for the creative urges of its members. (Facebook)

The BTO will take part in RISD Museum’s ‘Design the Night’ Thursday with two performances: 6pm to 6:30pm and again from 7:30pm to 8pm.

Free, Design the Night, FB, 5pm to 9pm, Thursday, April 17, RISD Museum, 224 Benefit Street and 20 North Main Street (directions)

Roz And Rice Cakes On Vinyl

11PM ON 12/04/2014
BY Beth Comery

need to feed The new Roz and the Rice Cakes album ‘Need to Feed’ happened to be playing recently at What Cheer Records and Vintage. Roz has in the past cited Gwen Stefani as one of her early influences and there are many Gwen moments in these atmospheric and genre-defying songs. Roz has a great set of pipes.

The album was recorded at Columbus Recording Company and mixed and mastered at Machines With Magnets. It is available as a download at Bandcamp; but head over to What Cheer and pick up one of these vinyl beauties for $15 while supplies last.

Rice Cakes Release Party Benefits RI Food Bank

9AM ON 04/04/2014
BY Beth Comery

roz & rice cakes (4.4) Roz and the Rice Cakes are back from a tour of the south and a six-show run at SXSW and are ready to throw a party and celebrate the release of their new album “Need to Feed.” And in a nice bit of synergy and good karma they will be collecting canned food for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

Chris Conti has all the details over at the Providence Phoenix.

The Rice Cakes spent the past 18 months writing Need To Feed. The album was recorded at the Columbus Theatre with help from co-producers Prystowsky and Knox Miller (it was mastered by go-to studio duo Keith and Seth at Machines With Magnets). Belisle and Foster, who built a studio from scratch for the Monster Man sessions, produced two of the new songs. And, perhaps a sign of just how unique a sound the Rice Cakes kick out, Raskin noted this is the first time the band recorded with electric guitar.

The Low Anthem and Dr. Jones and the Shiners open. Bring a can!

$10, all ages, 8pm, Friday, April 4, the Met, 1005 Main Street, Pawtucket
